The £10,000 annual bill for being a homeowner: Looking to sell your London home? - The Quicker Sale

The £10,000 annual bill for being a homeowner: Looking to sell your London home?

The cost of owning and running a home is at its highest for four years, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

 

It takes almost £10,000 a year to keep a roof over your head, and this is before a penny is spent on a major project such as a new bathroom, replacing the boiler or changing the carpets.

 

The figure comes in the latest report from the Halifax and confirms the experience of millions of homeowners who have found they can barely afford to pay the household bills.

It depicts an average spenditure of £9,393 a year – a total that homeowners rarely add up for themselves. This includes everything from the dreaded “monthly mortgage bill, council tax, water, electricity, gas, garden tools, cleaning products and household insurance.”

 

It is the biggest total since 2008, when the figure was £9,406.

$39,000 for the world’s smallest house. Are you looking to sell your house?

 

According to The Daily Mail, the 64-square foot home boasts a bedroom with a queen-size bed, a bathroom with a working shower, a mini fridge, a kitchen and a living area. 

 

The wooden home, called the Tumbleweed XS House, was built by volunteers in Ohio as part of the Toledo Museum of Art’s Small Worlds exhibition and is currently for sale on eBay.

 

According to the eBay listing, the home includes ‘a sleeping loft with queen size mattress, a functional bathroom with shower, a kitchenette, and a living area.’ But one prospective bidder did not seem impressed with the tiny home asking: ‘How in the world do you think this house could have a value of $600 per square foot?’

 

The Tumbleweed Tiny House Company replied that the home had quality rather than quantity.

 

They wrote: ‘The small house movement is about quality of space and design, not quantity. Plus, this is a charity auction of a home that was featured in a major museum exhibition, thus influencing the price.’

 

However, a home owner may be put off by the lack of basic utilities as detailed on the website which explains: ‘This home has RV style hookups for water and electrical but does not have an attached sewer tank.  Bathroom would need to be hooked up to an exterior sewer system or have a sewer storage tank added.’

 

Are you looking to sell your house? In the current economic climate, to achieve a sale on the open market house prices have to be slashed radically.

Britain’s cheapest house sold for ‘bargain’ £8250

 The two bedroom house on Church Street, in Ferryhill Station, County Durham, which is thought to be the cheapest house in the country after being sold in a live auction last night for just £8,250, after originally going on sale with a starting price of just £1: Britain's cheapest house sold for 'bargain' £8250

Britain’s cheapest home has sold for just £8,250 in a “bargain sale”, according to The Telegraph.

 

Rememberr last week I told you about a house up for auction for just £1? Well the bargain two-bedroom terrace in Ferryhill Station, Co Durham, has finally been snapped up.

 

But the house, which has been empty for at least 10 years, does require some renovating.  The Daily Mail reports “all of the windows are boarded up and vandals have sprayed graffiti on the walls. The interior is just as bad, with no ceilings or a kitchen leading neighbours to describe it simply as a “shell”.”

 

Jamie Cook, director of iam-sold, the company managing the sale said “as far as I am aware it is the cheapest house in Britain.” “To give you an idea, a garage in London would have sold for more than this.”

 

“The vendor is very happy with the sale. The house was a bargain, but it does need a lot of work.”

 

He added: “The auction was very busy, and the house attracted a lot of bids.

“We have sold this property for the lowest amount I can remember. It could be a lovely family home for a first-time buyer, but it needs a lot of work and the price reflected that.”

 

Are you trying to sell your home on the open market, but fear that a bargain is the only way to attract buyers? The Quicker Sale remains actively buying houses throughout the UK despite quickly and fairly, with our client’s best interest at heart.
