2. Cash buyers only – No bank in its right mind would lend on this
3. Compact – Glorified cupboard
4. Convenient for transport links – Feel the walls shake as a train passes
5. Cosy – No more than one person per room at a time
6. Close to good schools – Can get there in 10 minutes, if you drive like Lewis Hamilton
7. Easily-maintained garden – Concrete as far as the eye can see
8. Full of history – Doesn’t have electricity or running water
9. No onward chain – Somebody died in there
10. No photo available – The stuff of nightmares
11. Peaceful location – God’s waiting room
12. Perfect for a first time buyer – We know you can’t afford to be choosy
13. Period property – Derelict and possibly haunted
14. Popular area – You’ll be squashed in like sardines
15. Put your own stamp on it – Half-built
16. Renovation required – Watch your money magically disappear
17. Rural – There is nothing there, except maybe some sheep
18. Viewing recommended – The outside looks like something Stig of the Dump would reject
19. Pied-de-terre – Fancy French phrase for cosy
20. Quirky – Nothing matches and the doors are four-foot high
21. Three-bedroomed property – Two bedrooms and a cupboard where you could fit a sleeping bag... just
22. Reduced for a quick sale – There has been no interest
23. Within walking distance – If you have a spare five hours
24. Sought-after area – Ridiculous price
