The Sale of Council Assets – Part II

harrow_council_logoBack in February, we ran a guest post about the sale of council assets, and we touched on a Caretakers house at 51 The Gardens, which was up for auction with a guide price of £250,000+. and eventually, according to Bazza, went for £415,000.

Barely two months later, it’s back on the market with estate agent Robertson Phillips, and an asking price of £475,000 – an increase of £60,000 over that paid for it. It comes complete with pink shag-pile carpet in the lounge, overgrown garden and a 1970-style kitchen.

Clearly, the council is missing a trick here. A firesale is possibly not the best way to get value for your assets when you sell them.

Many thanks to G for the heads up.

    Well we’ll see if they get the asking price, won’t we? (Which i very much doubt – look at the state of that garden and kitchen – they’re ‘avvin a girraff lol!)
