Normally when it comes to selling a home the owners go about all the things to give it that special kerb appeal. This property for sale in Erdington house has got to be one of the messiest I have seen hit the market
The Birmingham estate agency dealing with the house has done a great job managing to get publicity for the house with it being featured in www. birminghammail.co.uk.
However according to their report the description given by the agency is in my opinion very generous indeed?
Brutal Edwards estate agents, promote the property as an “ideal for any private or investment purchaser”.
The estate agency describes the property as a “period style” house featuring “Minton tiled flooring” in the vestibule and a “generous lounge.”
The description states: “A traditional period style property set back off the road in need of modernisation available with no chain.
“To the ground floor is a generous through lounge that could be split back in to two receptions if required and access to the kitchen with a utility room towards the rear.”
The owner is losing thousands!
My advice to whoever owns this is to pay probably less than £1000 to get this house cleaned up. The property will definitely sell for more by attracting a wider audience of buyers. This seems a rather lazy sale to me where whoever owns it just cannot be bothered with it. It may the property of a mortgage lender who is keen just to get it off their books. Are they getting value for money on this sale?
