and we should lower the price, it has been on the market for nearly a year. Can anyone make suggestions how we can tart it up a bit to get it sold?

If it's overpriced all the tarting up in the world won't get it sold surely?

clicky link please!

ivykaty44 Sun 02-Oct-11 22:33:03

do you think?

I think the agent is BU

that really is vile! I wouldnt want to live in a place like that no matter how cheap it was.

It depends on how much you want to move, how much your mortgage is, how much you would need to achieve for the next house.

My mate is living down the road and also selling up - she is asking more than us and we have a better view

my mates

I think the stone lions could do with a bit of scrub tbh and you have a bulb out in one of the chandeliers - just shoddy dahlink.
Maybe a little accent colour in the master bedroom - pink fluffy cushions?
Also could you arrange some sunshine for better outdoor shots?

Does anyone else want to stand in the foyer and call "Heeeellllllloooooooooooo" in fed-ex man stylee?

ivykaty44 Sun 02-Oct-11 22:35:22

goodasgold - we are on a main road - the A46 is right outside our gates and we are desperate to move...

Kladdkaka Sun 02-Oct-11 22:35:27

Yep it's vile. Have you thought of paying someone to take it off your hands?

Jackstini Sun 02-Oct-11 22:35:41

But your mate has swans..........

It's like a shrine to bad taste. It's quite taken my breath away. Like a hideous hotel somewhere on the M4 but with added nouveau riche.

Shakey1500 Sun 02-Oct-11 22:35:57

The statue in the garden could do with a once over. Otherwise the estate agent is BU. Bargain that is.

ImperialBlether Sun 02-Oct-11 22:36:01

I think maybe a coat of paint, if you could afford it.

squeakytoy Sun 02-Oct-11 22:36:29

Your mates house is 2.5 million cheaper, and much nicer.. it even has its own pub!

goodasgold Sun 02-Oct-11 22:36:45

Sorry is your link to the 8 bed house? Then I think an entire renovation will be what it takes to sell. Try to titivate the kitchen first.

Hmm looks rather cold to me so I would put some carpets down, get central heating, double glazing and also get rid of the pond and the garden could do with a tidy up. Hope that helps. grin

According to my sources, it was listed today.
Property bee is a lovely little application, you should take a look using firefox with this app installed. That or the agents are cheeky fuckers and disguising the fact that it's been on for so long by relisting it daily.

What can I say, the flat screen tv looks too small on the wall.
That Lion with it's arse in the air is most peculiar too

grin

Kladdkaka Sun 02-Oct-11 22:37:21

Your mates house is nicer, although it doesn't have a pink front door and the garden gnomes seems to missing.

ivykaty44 Sun 02-Oct-11 22:38:30

the agents are cheeky fuckers - you can do a mn's search on this one as I asked about a year ago what I could do to make the photos better as I was never happy with them...

ljgibbs Sun 02-Oct-11 22:38:34

Oh do you do club membership for your gym?

piprabbit Sun 02-Oct-11 22:39:54

Lose the swagging.

Will your mate include the funky furniture?

AuntiePickleBottom Sun 02-Oct-11 22:39:58

what with the picture in the master bedroom...perfered the 2nd house as it looks like a mini 'white house'
