Greedy Kite-Flying Probates thread

2 to 3 years and they might hit a bid at the bottom of the market (after multiple reductions).

Our house a prime example, which eventually sold under 60% of original asking price.

How do you know they are probates?
some people like 70s decor.

Giveaways are old decor, non rental market type property, house cleared or partially cleared.

Other circumstances other than outright probate too-  owners have gone into care / moved to live with children.  Semi-probate.

To downsize very few can do so without a sale being part of the chain.

That is true.

Other pointers are  pop classics being played on a 1970s tape deck, an Armstrong lathe in the basement, a gun along side it and the vendors displaying every sign of desperation as a result of having already pissed away their inheritance.

There are always peaks and troughs in the housing market and with a bit of luck the market will bottom out in a year or so and there will be a lot of bargains to be had for those who keep their eyes open

Good thread.  I’ll add this. It’s worked its way down from around 550 and has languished on the market for a year at least.   I would like it but not at the price with the amount of work that needs doing

We're keeping granny's coffin in the front room for Halloween - Clare  Ainsworth - Plymouth Live

Now that's given me an idea. Will save on storage costs if I choose my coffin now or on burial fees if my OH departs before me.

Have any of our other skinflints thought the same?

Hate to say it, but they aren't bad houses for the money compared with the shite you get these days.

Decent sized floor space.  Decent sized rooms.

I agree. Floor space on the fist is impressive. Bungalow not so imo. The house won’t be a cavity construction so cold.

£290K this one, Kent. So depressing. For someone buying and this their budget and presumably some poor sod died in it.

If only this was true, most time their greed obscures any sensible price the agent may propose.

That is me.

I am a greedy bastard and a sensible price is anything that I can get away with. That said, I am at the stage where changing a toilet roll is half a day's work, so while the idea of tarting up a ruin and making a fortune thereby is still appealing, I just don't have the puff any more.
