While some serious pruning is needed outside, the family-sized house, which has a bathroom and toilet upstairs, comes with a valuable driveway and rear garage and could be a steal at just £25k. The Birmingham property is just one of 192 lots that are appearing in Bond Wolfe’s next auction, which will start at the earlier time of 8.30am on Thursday 8 February. 

What's been said about the house?

Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive at Bond Wolfe, said: “There are currently some overgrown trees that need to be cut back outside of this end-terraced home.

“Once that is done, the new owners will be presented with a property which stands back from the road with plenty of space on an L-shaped plot of land.

“This is likely to be a popular lot for first-time buyers with green fingers or for landlords looking to invest in extending their portfolios.” There is a porch, L-shaped reception room and dining kitchen on the ground floor, with a landing, three bedrooms, bathroom and toilet upstairs, plus gas central heating.

However, Mr Bassi added: “As well as some garden work, this property is also in need of renovation inside, reflected by its very attractive starting price.”
