to think that this estate agent needs to learn how to take some photos

Ok, £2 million quid for a house. Not a mansion. And not in Chelsea, or even in London.

So what do you put as the cover photo?

A shot at a weird angle showing off all the hideous 1970s fugliness of the houss:

And then a few photos making it look cramped.

Same house, different agent:

It looks much nicer all round.

I mean obviously it's still hideous for £2 million, but still.

Speaking of hideous 70s horridness, not far away: www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-24397482.html?premiumA=true It looks like a council sheltered accommodation block.

It does seem a bit dated. I think will be spending my 2 million elsewhere..

JoanBias Wed 24-Oct-12 02:57:40

Well, 10 miles south, for the same money:

I think I might spend my £2 million there, cos that is properly nice.

I have beaten you to it, but I might invite you over to play tennis and wander through the gardens..

cynister Wed 24-Oct-12 03:13:00

I so love looking at properties. It is a sad obession of mine.m

Nothing to add except that if it takes £2,000,000 to buy a house in England, we're never going to be able to buy a house...

sad

And the second looks so much more appealing!

midseasonsale Wed 24-Oct-12 05:40:59

Joan, that has so much potential to be cutting edge!

Newtothisstuff Wed 24-Oct-12 06:27:59

Those first 2 houses are horrid.. Surely they have the price wrong grin
That first one says 5 beds and the 2nd estate agent has 4... LOVE the house in godalming !!

Boomerwang Wed 24-Oct-12 06:36:52

Vintage closer to £3 million now I'm afraid :/

Feckbox Wed 24-Oct-12 06:37:42

Is the price for the first two for real?

Boomerwang Wed 24-Oct-12 06:44:38

Homes are especially cheap in Sweden, believe it or not. I have no idea why.

I hope you can see this link but this is an idea of kind of thing you can get for £100k

apartment

So much wasted space in that first one - massive garden you'd spend all your time mowing, huge patio area at the back to gather moss, but quite small rooms.

GobTheGoblin Wed 24-Oct-12 10:25:51

Do all Swedish apartments look like the Ikea catalogue, beacause that one does. grin

safflower Wed 24-Oct-12 10:29:58

love the dunsfold one. The other 2 - awful.

Teen1708 Wed 24-Oct-12 10:34:32

Bargain Boomerwang, I don't think I've ever seen a property for sale with quite so many photos of it - English estate agents are sadly lacking on this front, about eight photos usually at the most and two of them will be of the garden grin

SoupDragon Wed 24-Oct-12 10:36:31

The house in the first two has had new curtains since the first set of photos. and they have a new toaster and kettle.

typicalvirgo Wed 24-Oct-12 10:36:54

Boomerwang that is lovely and at £100K an absolute bargain.

Pity that everything else in sweden is so expensive !

I am so glad I dont need to live in guildford - they are just rank !

is the rest of guildford as unappealing as these ?

Boomerwang Wed 24-Oct-12 11:44:39

Yes, everything in Sweden looks like a page from an Ikea catalogue.

The stunning thing is that despite being a Swedish company, you can buy the exact same items they sell in UK Ikea but for nearly twice the price. You'd think it'd be cheaper?

mathwi Wed 24-Oct-12 12:22:53

Boomerwang are you from this part of Sweden?? Just really curios as I am!! (grin) My brother is actually living in the same block of flats. Still can't believe someone found a link to that town (smile)

This thread has just reminded me why house prices in this country are totally stupid!

Even the nicer one is over- priced!

What the hell are those things on the bed?
