WIW - 20 Griffith Avenue

We have been looking around this area for while and nothing is coming up in our price range or not requiring gutting.

Has anyone been to see it. Kitchen looks smallish from the photos

Main road. Layout looks a little off. Done up but decor far from perfect (for me). Small-ish garden.

Cheaper/better value nearby:

Six bed, 900 sq ft bigger - myhome.ie/residential/brochu … -3/2656395
Two houses, with the main one bigger than this - myhome.ie/residential/brochu … -3/2489298

Can’t sell a gaff at 595k? Then sensibly drop the price to 570k.

Still can’t shift it? Well the madness has returned so bump it up to 649k because there has to be one unfortunate sucker out there.

25 Oct - drop the price from 649k to 600k
Today (on myhome but not yet on callapso) - bump it back up to 650k


Has this house been sale agreed but fallen through a number of times already? If so then I’d wonder why this is…

Back down to 600k. I’m getting dizzy.

Was actually going to start a thread named “The curious case of 20 Griffith Avenue”

One of the many supposed houses for sale that aren’t actually for sale?

I don’t think would-be purchasers have any idea just how many are not really for sale.

this intrigues me.

how can that be the case, that the seller gets to set the sale price?

I thought that in a re-possession or forced sale that the bank got to put the asset on the market if the mortgage was not being paid - and that was that.

its only worth 525,000 tops. I don’t even know where I am getting that figure from tbh.

is the estate agent complicit in this not being for sale do you think? maybe they dont care if they are still getting paid?

Was thinking this myself

If they get the marketing costs paid and are implicitly aware its not really for sale they might not bother with viewings and as a result everyone is happy (apart from potential purchasers!)
