    makes you wonder what's going on doesn't it?! The one I posted is a tad on the high side for the area, but not ridiculously so.


    My favourite "have a look at this" property atm though has to be this one. The last picture always makes me smile :)

    Grimbal I'll be on rightmove this week, I'm hoping I don't turn up in this thread :D

    I saw one a few weeks ago and according to property bee it had been on for 2 yrs and every 3 weeks they'd put the price up/down by 25k - most odd!

    Very cute...and clever advertising, too. I can't be the only soppy dog owner out there - that picture alone might swing the decision between this house and a similar one for me.

    Incidentally...I do like the house in itself. But that pup made me like it even more.

    Is the dog included in the price then?!

    The dog would put me off. Can't stand the smell of a place with a dog. The owner doesn't usually think there's a smell but I can assure them, there is.

    I hear what you are saying - and this is from a person who loves dogs. It is fiendishly hard to eradicate dog odour even from the most well groomed and well kept of dogs.

    Still, what often makes me laugh, I find the people who are MOST sensitive to even the faintest of dog odours...are young parents. Believe me - their places often STINK. From soiled nappies, spilt milk which has gone rancid and sour on carpets and soft furnishings - yet they are so accustomed to this smell ...they no longer register it at all.

    If I truly liked the house though - be that from previous pets or previous kids - it wouldn't deter me one iota. So you have the house professionally shampooed and cleaned - no big deal.

    I'll see if I can find it later but I saw another where the kitchen photo was looking at the back door and a very sad dog was looking in from outside awww :D
