A house in UK for £750!

Britain’s cheapest house — a three-bed semi in Teesside — is going under the hammer for a meagre £750.

Estate agents are even willing to do a “two for the price of one” as the desperate owners are also auctioning a similar house in the road for about £1,000.

Both the houses are in an area blighted by arson and anti—social behaviour, and have their windows barred against vandalism, the auctioneers admitted.

However, they have attracted red-hot interest with one man making a 1046 kilometres round trip for a viewing ‘The Mirror’ reported.

“There’s no reserve price, which is unusual. We are looking for a quick sale and may do a ‘buy one get one free’,” Estate agent Richard Watson said.

“We believe £750 is the cheapest house even in the current market.

“Let’s face it, you couldn’t get a banger for that — you’re probably looking at a very posh fridge freezer,” he said.

Similar houses to the £750 pad in Port Clarence, near Middlesbrough, would usually sell for £35,000.

Estate agents Robinsons admits the area is not great and empty houses in the road tend to get vandalised.

“You can get let them for £100-a-week so it’s a good investment,” Watson added.

He said that a lorry driver from Portsmouth has already been for a viewing and is keen to uproot his family.
