Ugh, estate agents

@akaYoda isn’t so bad mind

So the local EA with the best reputation is offering me 1%. Valuation booked for next Weds.

I would have more than 1 round to give you a valuation. And ask the question “why should I use you, instead of XYZ?” Then go with the one who you dislike the least (or the one you can work with)

Damned by faint praise. With that glowing endorsement I shall conquer the world.
Please note the exclusion in my T&C’s that I do not survey garages. :wink:


Also have a viewing next week of this potentially interesting property/ money pit -


The old “guide price” sucker punch.

Yeah, as if!

I had a sneak around the grounds yesterday. There’s no way its going for that!

£450k you say?


As co-owner of a moneypit - consider a non-moneypit at a higher price, cos the moneypit will cost you at least as much as somewhere that has already broken hearts and destroyed marriages…

I saw Kiddy and was like :grimacing:

Now I read Hartlebury I’m more :slightly_smiling_face:

OK I’ve watched the slideshow now.

My unsolicited opinion is: absolutely shocking money pit, could be really fantastic, but for me above all else absolutely beautiful grounds. I like.

If you look at the full particulars it says Guide Price - £300-400k so with the amount of interest it would generate then about £450k would be my guess too.

Hel’s first impressions were - ‘I could do wonders with that all that garden’, and ‘you and your records can go in the snug’

Pics 30 and 31 look like a good 1.5 garage sized listening room.

Some might try to fit a Porker in there (and be disappointed…)

I refer the gentleman to my earlier statement.
Nice house with lots of potential. £450K+
Spend £150K + on it.
In that location what is the max value that a nice up to the minute refurbished/ extended sympathetically, house will fetch? A developer of one house on the plot would be looking for £750K ish. Will the local market support that. In an OK but not exceptional location here that would go for over £800K and they would drop it and build from scratch looking for £1.5/2M final value.
You need to buy with your head or as Paul says there will be tears.

If it were in Hartlebury Village then £800-900k would be possible for a nicely done refurb.

The attraction with this is the plot and the potential with the house, but I don’t see the market in that precise location (not a sought after road, rocket factory at the end of the cul de sac) means I doubt it would fetch much more than £650k if refurbed, so the buying price is pretty crucial.

Are you looking to spin it or live in it?

Live in it.

That is in much worse nick than ours was. Only one bathroom*, probably needs an ensuite because reasons, a new roof, full rewire, new kitchen/diner across the back and and every surface refinished. If you see change out of £200K you’ll be doing very well. There’ll be 10K in skips and scaff before you really start.

Looks lovely and seems like a nice location. It is the kind of thing I buy every time.

*It has all the avocado though.
