Britons know they’ll have to part with a lot of money when it comes to buying a new home. With house prices on the up, and first-time buyers finding it particularly difficult to get on the property ladder, those interesting in buying will be making sure they have as much funds as possible to secure their home. Cheap homes in the UK are hard to come by, so this property is likely to turn the heads of potential buyers, after it was listed on Hoopla for just £48,750. The huge property – which is located in Shrewsbury – includes three bedrooms, one of which is a master bedroom, a family bathroom, a lounge area and a kitchen/dining room with patio doors that lead out onto the garden.
On the ground floor, buyers can find the spacious living room, which has been decorate to a high standard with fresh white walls and plush grey carpet.
There is also a kitchen/dining room that has been decorated in a similar fashion, with light grey wooden flooring, dark marble counters, white wooden cupboards and stainless steel accessories.
Patio doors lead out onto the spacious garden, which is the perfect size for family BBQs.
Upstairs holds the master bedroom, with cited wardrobe, as well as two other bedrooms, which have all been fitted with the grey carpet.
Buyers, especially those with children, will benefit from its location, with two schools within close proximity.
So why is it so cheap?
One look at the description and the price will become clearer to potential buyers.
