The Missed Opportunity In East Ham

26 Jul

Today I saw a property in East Ham – it was a ground floor purpose built flat with about 74 years left on the lease and a guide of 100-110k. I thought the end value was about 140-150k so there was something in it.

I went along to view and it the block was well maintained externally and internally:

The inside of the flat was a good size – there was some damp in the bedrooms, but that could be sorted

The kitchen was dated:

The bathroom could be sorted for minimal cost

The lounge was a nice size and just needed cosmetics

I had it down on my list to bid for…

Then I got busy and had another property I was trying to bid for…so I didn’t attend the auction as I decided with it being a big auction house it would go well over guide anyway. So I chose to go for the other project…

How WRONG was I

It sold for 99k! DOH!!!!

    Bad luck Sam.

    I actually love the ‘dated’ kitchen units – retro orange with aluminium strip – love it!
