This house might be of interest to you if….

  2. You’re Probably right, David. But I had no idea where the pictures came from. Someone sent it to me in an email and I posted it up.

  9. From the back, it looks like a shed stuck onto the one house! you’d have to get along with your neighbors or they might park their car on your house! Not for fat people, but a single spinster might find it cozy!

  11. Actually, this would be perfect for a single person who doesn’t party. Room for a TV, desk, loveseat, couple bookshelves. I mean, you’re not going to have a pool table, but hey, my house is 1400 sf and I don’t have room for one, either.
    If I was still single I’d so live in that.

  13. It seems more like a novelty buy than a practical purchase.

    Maybe if the price were lower…

  17. Was there some local building regulation which said they couldn’t go up a storey? There is plenty of height above to allow for another storey. In that space you could have a full sized bathroom – with tub, shower, washbasin, WC and reasonable floor space for bathroom scales, waste bin and bath rug. Does the circular window in the roof space throw light on a storage area? A storage area AND a full sized bathroom could be added up there. Also, sacrifice most of the front garden and you have a space to park your car. There is still the patio in the back to sit outside and enjoy the sun. BTW – that down-pipe from the rain gutter in the front seems to discharge straight onto the grass. Wouldn’t be permitted in the UK; needs to go underground into a proper drain. Fencing at the back is not adequate – doesn’t go right down to the ground and looks scruffy. With the additions I have mentioned, It might command a price of, say, ?200K in the London area – if the seller were lucky.
    Has the little house sold yet? If so, did the seller get his asking price?

  20. It is in Toronto definitely, somewhat famous. I would never pay 180 000 for a place like that, but for a single person who doesn’t spend a lot of the time in the house it really wouldn’t be that bad if it was considerably cheaper. I’ve seen larger places that are less attractive.

    However, at 180 000 you are paying for the history/novelty rights as well as a living space, and i think that is what makes it so highly priced.

  24. a bit pricey, but for a simple person, this would be sufficient space. I’m a high school teacher: i need a place to knit and grade papers. that’s pretty much all the time i have in my life!

  25. not only that — the utilities would be cheap!

  26. I have realized that over the course of developing a relationship with real
    estate owners, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in every single real estate transaction, a percentage is paid. Finally, FSBO sellers don’t “save” the payment.
    Rather, they try to win the commission simply by doing a strong agent’s job. In accomplishing this, they spend their money as well as time to perform, as best they are able to, the tasks of an agent. Those duties include exposing the home through marketing, showing the home to prospective buyers, constructing a sense of buyer urgency in order to make prompt an offer, preparing home inspections, taking on qualification inspections with the mortgage lender, supervising maintenance, and facilitating the closing of the deal.
