When you are looking for a house, it can sometimes feel like you have to make millions to find a comfortable place.
Between mortgages and attorneys’ fees, getting into the real estate market can be quite expensive.
So when a ‘well-connected’ home in the heart of Paisley was listed on a shockingly low £ 9k auction site, the initial bid seemed almost too good to be true.
But that’s because, it’s because the apartment needs a major update.
Although it is rare to find a house for sale that does not require any alterations, this particular home needs a major cleanup than most.
The Paisley property on Causeyside Street was recently marketed but has gotten all the wrong kind of attention due to its, ahem, slightly messy interior.

The apartment has a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, but every square inch is filled with clutter.
Pictures show garbage strewn across each room, closet falling off their hinges and a makeshift curtain made of bedding.
Despite the conspicuous shortcomings, the optimistic listing describes the apartment as “an ideal buy”.
Future real estate auctions in Shawlands, which markets the property, say: “It’s an ideal buy for an investor or landlord who wants to add to their portfolio.
“As a university town, there are a large number of students as well as the area’s largest hospital.”
Would you like to receive this diamond in the rough? The winner of the auction could make a real bargain here – with plenty of money left over for renovation – and maybe a leap.
