Everybody loves a bargain – and a property bargain – well that is even better.
So imagine my surprise when I found THREE stunningly cheap properties which are so damn cheap you just have to take a look
The first is a property in Belfast. Admittedly, it’s Northern Ireland – but you know usually property in Belfast still costs more than many a Northern town I have come across (I’m not going to sling any more mud at the cheapskate Burnley terraces I have come across), because, today, this Belfast “beauty” really is an eye-wateringly LOW guide price.
Yes, you heard me – less than the cost of a decent holiday.
You can buy a THREE bedroom end of terrace in Belfast with a guide price of £2,000
Of course, I’m holding back on the photo – because you do need to see the property in question in it’s full glory.
And I’m warning you – it does need modernisation…and maybe some attention to the SEVERE fire damage which seems to have engulfed the property.
But remember it’s got a guide of just £2k – which is marginally less than a pint of milk at Waitrose.
If you fancy your chances – it’s being sold by Must Be Sold (Lot 8) on the 5 December 2012

So the next property up for auction is a 1 bed flat in Kensington. But before you get excited – this is Kensington, Liverpool…NOT London!
Anyway – at a NIL Reserve it’s probably worth a look…just pry open the boarded up windows and what you should find is a flat which comprises a lounge, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
The auctioneers have yet to carry out an internal inspection – and it’s likely it will need some work (!) but with no reserve – who can tell what this will sell for…
If you have a crowbar handy and a pair of rose tinted glasses the property is being sold with Sutton Kersh on the 6 December 2012 (lot 54)

Alternatively, if you’re looking for a *real steal* – how about this buy-one-get-one-free offer in Cockermouth, Cumbria.
With a NIL reserve – you can buy, not one, but TWO Grade II former cemetery chapels. Situated at the entrance to the cemetery these properties even come with a strip of land to the rear of the chapels AND a blinking big arch (although the Vendor remains a right of way through the archway)
So if you fancy a BOGOFF property with a difference – get yourself to Pugh auctions on the 29 November 2012 (lot 1)
