    Buying a house in Sylhet, Bangladesh

    Buying a house in Sylhet, Bangladesh 18th Mar 17 at 1:30 PM
    Hi All,

    I'd like to know how much the average 4/5 bedroom house in Sylhet, Bangladesh would cost to purchase.

    I've heard they can be a similar price to the properties in the south east of England.
    I'd also like to know how much it would cost to build a similar sized property over there too.

    Thank you for any replies.

    Have a great weekend.

    Regards

    Andrew

    Do not listen to Harryp_24.

    He is NOT the "residential Bangladeshi property tycoon".

    Has he baked you a cake yet? No - thought not.

    I am the resident Bangladeshi property tycoon and I say 55 upwards.

    cbp, you are obviously talking nonsense. I don't think you are an expert at all.

    By my calculations, it is £73,788.50!

    If you do a google image search on "Sylhet", it does look like a very beautiful green place if you ignore the passenger aircraft stuck nose-first in the river.
