THIS three-bedroom terraced house located in East London for just £250,000 seems too good to be true for prospective buyers.
But there’s a catch – the property in Stratford, Newham, is in dire condition and in need of a total revamp.

The listing on property website, Rightmove discloses that the premises require ‘modernisation’ which is quite the understatement.
Despite boasting huge indoor space, any prospective buyers will have to fork out a significant amount of time and money on renovating the interior.
Stained walls, mounds of rubbish and rotten floorboards are just some of the obstacles facing any buyers trying to turn this house into a home.
Every surface in the home seems to be dirty and the bathroom has cracked tiles with stagnant water in the bathtub.
The kitchen is strewn with leftover food with the remaining appliances covered in dust and grime.
Dirt and damp patches cover the walls of the home in Stratford and there are mouldy black floorboards, yellowing wallpaper and ripped curtains in the living room.
Heaps of old clothes, suitcases and trash are crammed into the cellar which will require a massive clean up job.
Situated on East Road, the property does have great travel links, being in close proximity to both Plaistow Station and Upton Park Station.
For those with young families looking to buy, the property is well within reach of a number of local primary schools.
It is also nearby the ever popular Westfield Stratford City Shopping Centre.
All three bedrooms are located on the first floor while the ground floor has an entrance hall, reception room, kitchen and bathroom.
The house does come with the added benefits of a cellar, a front garden and a back garden.
Unfortunately, the outdoor areas are in a similar state to the rest of the property with overgrown ivy and weeds.
Random debris from previous homeowners such as an upturned wheelbarrow litter the sprawling grass.
However, with a lot of elbow grease, a decent interior designer and building crew, the property has the potential to be turned into a worthwhile investment.
The Rightmove ad states that the house is to be sold by online auction today starting at £250,000.
