A TikToker's Risky Move
A man, known as "fourfiftyk" on TikTok, has made headlines after claiming he bought a house in Croydon, South London for £311,000 without even viewing it beforehand. In a video posted on the social media platform, the man takes his followers inside the house for the first time, revealing his initial thoughts and what he plans to do with the property.
As he steps out of his car and approaches the house, the man admits to having no idea what it looks like inside. However, upon entering, he is pleasantly surprised to find that the property is in fairly decent condition. The hallway is neat and tidy, and there doesn't appear to be anything obviously wrong. The man captions the video with "Not bad" and "Boom!!!", expressing his relief.
A Quick Tour
Continuing his tour, the man explores the empty rooms on the ground floor and finds them to be perfectly habitable. Despite lacking character, there are no major issues that catch his eye. The back garden, while sparse and featureless, is also free of overgrown weeds. Overall, the house seems to be in a decent state.
After showcasing the property, the TikToker asks his followers for advice on what to do next. He offers three options: sell the house as is for a profit, rent it out, or refurbish it and sell it for an estimated £425,000. Many commentators chimed in, with some suggesting renovating the house for a higher selling price and others emphasizing the potential profit.
