Flat for Sale, Bermondsey, Surrey Quays, London SE16
How hard is it to sell a studio flat oposite Surrey Quays Tube?, 1st Floor, cheapest in the borough by a mile (unless you want a boat.) £120k down from £132k.
My friend has had this place on the market for a year. Ok, its just down the road from the Millwall football ground but some would see that as a bonus. (No one touches your car if you have a Millwall sticker in it.)
Yes, it's high rise, (but it is Listed!) The walls are so solid its hard to put up a picture or a shelf. It has a balcony from which the occupier can catapault ball barings at passing buses. So it is ex local authority. And the stairs smell a little. But there is a lift to the front door, which doesn't smell.
The Estate Agents have found one buyer in a year. This man quibbled on the price on the day of exchange and completion. He lost his mortgage offer. I rang the Agents to enquire about the place three weeks after this happened and they told me the place was "Long Gone". ?????? I have suggested that my friend puts it in the local paper.
