A question about : The "have a look at this!" thread

How about starting up a thread dedicated to the interesting properties that we come across in our searches ?

I'll start off with this one - fairly average, until you look at it via Property Bee. It's been on since 2008 !! title=EEK!title=EEK!

  • makes you wonder what's going on doesn't it?! The one I posted is a tad on the high side for the area, but not ridiculously so.
    My favourite "have a look at this" property atm though has to be this one. The last picture always makes me smile
  • Grimbal I'll be on rightmove this week, I'm hoping I don't turn up in this thread
    I saw one a few weeks ago and according to property bee it had been on for 2 yrs and every 3 weeks they'd put the price up/down by 25k - most odd!
  • The dog would put me off. Can't stand the smell of a place with a dog. The owner doesn't usually think there's a smell but I can assure them, there is.
  • Cute dog looking out saying "please don't buy my house" can you spot him?
    hope it worked!
  • Awww, is he guarding the front door from those pesky house hunters?
  • I like this one:

  • You can almost hear the phone call...

  • ooh, that's a good one We had problems with our first EAs when it came to them checking their work - not on that scale though!
  • Even at 239 it's a ridiculous price. And position-wise it's in the middle of Brighton tourist hell: close to the station, in the area with the bohemian shops...noisy, crowded etc. I wouldn't live there...
  • Well, Drama Llama, as someone house-hunting in that exact area, I really like the fact that the N Laine is close to the station and the cafes. Though I agree, Kemp St is on the tourist main drag, it varies street by street. Takes all sorts, eh?
    My own personal favourite house in that area, with the same agent, is this one:
    Check out Photo 6 in particular. We actually went round it, just in case it was a hidden bargain with something truly amazing there that didn't show in the photos. Nope. But there were some attractive underpants on display (I think they've removed a photo that featured the very same pants in the same position). The price has already come down Ј50,000, I think.
  • It is really hard. My parents have always had cats and the house smells of cat quite a bit
    I wouldn't not view a house where the owner had pets and the smell wouldn't put me off buying; I just get super freaked out round dogs so if they can be out of the way, I would be eternally grateful. I know it's my problem, not theirs.
    The one we saw that had the dog hair carpet was generally in really bad condition (ceilings collapsing type bad condition). To be honest, I felt sorry that the dog had to live in it
