Wanderers Ways - passion not fashion

Recommended Posts

Self build is the way. We once brought a new house from a developer and it was a pile of shit so sold it at a loss. All our other houses have been renovations and conversions.

At least if you do it yourself and its shit you only have yourself to blame. Find a field/plot or something knackered out at auction and get stuck in.

There are also no empty properties in the Rio favelas, but I wouldn't live there either.

Walkden, L/h & farnworth shit holes 

Anything decent is either overpriced, snapped up very quickly or both. 

I've settled for something a bit smaller than I wanted and needs a full refurbishment, although it'll be a decent sized semi once I've stuck an extension on it. 

My main worry is how much the renovations are gonna cost me - May have to space some of them out over the next couple of years.

This is 💯 nailed on for Horwich. 

Anything on longer than a week is where someone has GOT DEAD and needs complete modernisation.

Ours has probably gone up by pushing 40% in 3 years since we bought it

House parents left me by a similar amount 

Only really helpful if you sell  and go somewhere  abroad that doesnt have crazy property prices

 

Keep thinking about it, could retire tomorrow

Talking with a client today, told me he wants to build a modern steel and glass box in the corner of a wood he owns, budgeting £1 million and asked me if I would personally supervise it for him... wealthy bastard... of course I said yes

Houses are "sold " but a lot aren't completing.  Know if 2 that we made offers on that are still on the market 8 months later...

Guy we bought from had 6 viewings in 3 days but they were all time wasters or dreamers,  a lot are getting mortgages refused as they've been furlough etc. 

Our house in farnworth sold 6 times! Fell through each time as they either couldn't raise the money or didn't fully understand English properly laws

Flower estate didn't seem too bad, been away 3 months and just driven past old house and realised why it has a bad rep :(

A house has gone up for sale on your folks street if they get the asking price that’s a big jump👍

We fairly recently moved (November) our old house sold within 24 hours of being listed, which meant we then offered on this one, which had only been on the market for a few days. Property prices round here are going through the roof again at the minute as more and more people are moving out from London as they want/need a garden and the extra room(s) required for home offices

I'd hate to be a first time buyer, round here, it's not even that expensive compared to just 25 miles further south but even a small 2 bed terrace house in the village is now knocking on for £300K now. The young couple who bought our old house had to get a 35 year mortgage!!!

There’s absolutely fuck all for sale.

Can sell mine quick enough, but at the minute most houses are in huge demand. Asked about one today and they had 18 viewings booked in.

Any visionaries on here fancy giving me an idea if things are going to change later this year?

Can't see it on right move

Or the one opposite my dad's

Which agent, pal?

Be nice to see what it goes for
