Here's a nice one from Wales. Do the paintings come as part of the package though?

I was going to say the exterior is nice, then I saw all the pics. Seems
like you don't get a lot for 240,000. (KRW388,319,530) This looks way
overpriced for the UK. Especially for a shitty place like Wales. :) If you
tried to do any renovation work and made any noise, your neighbor
would probably come over and smash a Newcastle Brown bottle across
your face.

It's a very sensible dream home!
Looks like a nice house for a reasonable amount of money. You'd probably want to have a job where you can work remotely, though.

That place has a lot of potential and could be done fairly cheaply if you're handy. Which I'm LOL (Foghorn Leghorn quote)

What an amazingly convenient apartment, you can brush your teeth, take a crap and do your laundry all at the same time!



Even in Korean dramas. The interior decoration is gaudy, plastic
and lacks personality.

South Korean interior design is basically tacky dictator chic from like 50 years ago.

Wow, this property in Wales caught my eye. What a fantastic house. It lists
for 1,500,000 (KRW2,425,978,252). This is MUCH cheaper than a lot of filthy,
ugly "apartments" in Seoul. It boggles the mind what piles of crap sell for
in the Korean capital.

I suspect that maintenance and heating costs on that place would cripple one financially though.  I hear ride on mowers aren't so expensive . Perhaps you could just have sheep  or goats grazing on the lawn.

That last one should be bought up to use as a small, exclusive inn or B&B.

Even then, you'd probably go broke. Thoughts of "Faulty Towers" spring to mind.

I suspect you'd be rather limited in potential developments too! If it's anything like Australia, places like that are heavily protected.

A lot of bezzle in the property market. The missus' chums bought an apartment and it has inflated in value to half a million dollars. We went to the housewarming and it's your fairly standard place. I pointed out to the missus that it might now be valued at half a million on paper but it simply doesn't merit that price tag in reality. The only way you can sell it for that amount is on the "greater fool" principle because nobody would look at it in bricks-and-mortar reality and say "This is definitely worth $500,000"
oo oo ahh ahh

There's more expensives one for sure, point being not that it is expensive but that it isn't intrinsically worth that. Hence my claim about there being bezzle.

I'm not sure I agree with this either. Things are worth what people
will pay for them. I have no problem with this. What I think is a little
off is what you get for the money. No yard. No storage space. No BBQ
in the summer. No space for hobbies.

As for that Wales estate. It looks nice, but yes, it would have hidden
costs. It would probably also be very lonely.

The only place where things have intrinsic value is communist Russia.
