- Bought in 2010 for £ 260 k
- Sold in 2016 for £ 465 k
- Increase of £ 205 k in 6 years
- Location: West London (Zone 4)

Anyone else? It would be interesting to see the differences around the country. I realise I have benefited massively from the London property market, which is bonkers IMHO.

One pound five? You've got yourself a bargain. Or it's got serious dry rot.

Not me, but one of my good friends recently sold her 1 bedroom flat up in the midlands.

Purchased in 2006, sold in 2016.
She made 10k on the sale price.
In Sutton Coldfield.
She had a mortgage on it so walked away with maybe 15k profit.
Now trying to buy a home in London with her OH.
No chance!

Completely different market and world compared with the insanity of London property prices...you lucky people!

Last house we bought for £220k in 2003 and sold for £410k in 2008 - its unrealistic to look at these figures though without knowing more information. For example in our case we built an extension and renovated throughout.

We bought 11 years ago in Birmingham and have just put our house on the market for 7k more than we paid for it. I don't think we're going to make much on the sale!

No mortgage but we do have to pay capital gains tax on the £150k. I've just purchased a 4 bed house in the North West for £175k.
