THIS three bedroom house could be yours for just £30,000 – but it is in desperate need of refurbishment.
The terraced property in Wigan, Greater Manchester is set to go under the hammer next week and could be the perfect family home.
It shares a street with properties averaging around £118,000 – but due to its derelict condition, the Bombay Road house will go up for auction with a guide price of just £30,000.
The gated building is the perfect solution for anyone looking for a top performer – and has the potential to make a dream family home.
It is set to go up for auction by Taylor James Auctions on April 13, offering spacious bedrooms, a front and back garden and a driveway.
On the ground floor, an entrance hall, a large living room with fireplace and a dining room opening onto the kitchen.
The patio doors from the living room also lead out to the rear garden.
On the first floor are three bedrooms as well as a family bathroom.
Photos of the house in its current state show that all windows and doors are boarded up to deter intruders from the outside.
And inside, there are stained walls, broken floors, and likely signs of mold and damp.
The previous owners left only a few personal effects, including curtains in the living room and children’s paintings in one of the bedrooms.
Buying run-down property at an auction can often get you a home for a much cheaper price.
It may need to be gutted and refurbished, allowing buyers to put their own stamp on it and add value.
If you don’t want to live in the house yourself, it could be a great investment if you buy to rent.
Any interested buyer must pre-register for the online auction via the auctioneer’s website no later than 8 a.m. on April 13.
