I love a bargain. Especially when it involves property.
And so wanting to follow my own advice of last week (investing in property locally) I decided to do some sniffing around on the net and see what I could find for less nearby.
I didn’t get very far before I spotted a one bed for just £29,995 in Broxbourne, EN10. Broxbourne is a pleasant town in Hertfordshire and is just down the road from me. It’s not an area I know so well, but it’s pretty close to the Easy Buy To Let Property and so it fits geographically. Critically (for me and my buying criteria) Broxbourne has a regular train service to London (Liverpool Street) with a journey time of just 32 minutes.
Of course, there was a catch.
The property was a houseboat.
