Why is the British housing market so fucked and why are their houses so shit? I understand that it is a small island, but this is ridiculous.
>>
Probably because it's a tiny island with no space
>>
Same problem in Australia m8
If you think Britain is full you should check this place out

She's not your girlfriend if you've never met her, m8.

I just bought an 1800 sq ft house 10 miles outside of Austin, TX for $200,000.

The real estate market in bongland is wonky, that $/sq ft is ridiculous. If it's her money then who gives a shit though, just don't marry her and it's all good.

No, unfortunately :(

>>53656292
Must be a great relationship if you're mature enough to open a thread complaining about her on an anonymous Bahrainian lead smelting forum.

I ran the numbers, those really don't make sense unfortunately.

op never indicated that the picture was the house in question

Why would I post the exact house she is looking at?

>Semi-detached house LIKE pic related
>>
>>53656292
I bet she's sucking Hasib and Haroons dick back in England

Then you'll buy the house live with her and she'll still be sucking Hasib on the side

Shipping containers may seem like a good idea, but they are pretty shit in practice.

Jesus fucking Christ.

I live in NYC and I own a 3 story house that's separated just outside Manhattan for $500k. That house in your pic is made for ants.
>>
>>53656746

Not too worried about it, honestly. If anything ever happened, I wouldn't stick around and put up with any shit. I'm more worried about how fucking expensive it is to live there and how awful the country itself is.
>>
>>53656629
you would be able to afford a similarly sized condo in downtown vancouver for that much. if you want to live in a detached home, then hongcouver is not the city for you.
>>
British homes don't have basements either, so it is much smaller ebe

>>53656889

Fuck that sounds awful.

If you look at the floorplan, that place is tiny as fuck.

Also
>almost $500k dollaridoos

You could get something like that here for about $200k plus you would get a 2 car garage, a basement, and a bigger yard.

Place looks pretty cramped, tbqhwy.

>>53655343
In all fairness, in rich towns here in the U.S. a house like that cost the same prices.

Here in Greenwich because of the proximity to Yale, the fact that Greenwich High is an above average school, and the average house here is priced in the millions, it's pretty normal for a house of that size to cost that much here.

How much room do you lardarses need goddamn
Our housing market is definitely fucked, but consider that you're paying premium for a home that won't blow over in the wind
>>
>>53657109

Jesus, it is also in the middle of nowhere and north of Manchester.
>>
>>53657230

Yes, but that house isn't in a rich area of a city. It is in the middle of nowhere and far away from any city.

English land is more scarce and valuable. Even if you're in the middle of nowhere you'll be paying out the ass.

You're all doing it wrong lads, get a foreign gf, learn their irrelevant language and then move to their cunt. Because of how strong the pound is if you save up before you go you can start off with loads of money, even in other western euro cunts they are mostly poorer. Being British and having qualifications from here is very valuable

Shitty desu. At least British suburbs have some degree of community that isn't an uppity homeowners association and have pub and shops in walking distance
>>
>>53661604

I live a 5 min walk from multiple stores and restaurants, train station, bus stops, my doctor, dentist, garage, etc.

>>53661604

Kek. Nice memes. You know nothing about here.
>>
>>53661390
Just keep expressing an interest in her country and culture and say you want to learn more about it. Try to travel over there as often as possible, even just a week away you'll pick up a lot of the language faster then if you was here
>>
British houses are made of brick and mortar though, not sheets of plywood and glue. Our houses don't fall down in a strong wind.
