London’s ONLY £100,000 home: Tiny one-bed studio is sat inches from a dual carriageway

A tiny studio the size of a bouncy castle that is sat inches away from a busy dual carriageway is London‘s only home for sale for £100,000 or under.

The poky studio is sat on a former commercial lot and measures just 15ft by 16ft, with a single door at the front and two windows.

For their money, a first-time buyer would get a bedroom, bathroom, reception-cum-kitchen area and a ‘lobby’, with just enough room for them to stand in.

Estate agents Bairstow Eves describes the home, situated on the edge of east London in Hornchurch, as an ‘investment opportunity’ in a ‘central location’.

The home, which has already fallen from its initial £130,000 asking price, is currently being leased by tenants who are paying £600 a month to live there.

Despite the comparatively low asking price for a London home, a buyer on the UK average wage of £28,677 would need a £20,000 deposit and a mortgage of more than three times their annual pay.

The property is currently on the market with Bairstow Eves

The research into London’s £100,000 houses was carried out by housesimple.com, which excluded houseboats, retirement homes and shared ownership properties.

Housesimple chief executive Sam Mitchell said: ‘The death of the £100,000 property in London was inevitable.

‘This research highlights the need for properties at the lower end of the market.

‘Shared ownership and Help to Buy have helped people on average incomes get a foot on the ladder, but both schemes have their critics.

‘It can be complicated to sell a property if you only have a small stake in it, and expensive to increase your stake, as there are additional costs to consider.’
