Northamptonshire property has never been more sought after.
The county’s proximity to great transport links and rolling countryside makes it a hot spot for those looking for a more rural lifestyle while still being close to the action of a city.
This was proved by the county’s recent appearance on hit BBC property show Escape to the Country.
However, in such a competitive market, some homes can be quite difficult to sell, whether it’s because they need a bit of work doing to them or if they are a bit quirky.
And the answer? Estate agents will often reduce the asking price of homes that are proving more tricky to shift.
These homes might need a bit of imagination or vision to work, but you’d be surprised at just how many stunning homes have had their prices cut since appearing on the market.
