Bargain sale

This is my next door neighbour's conservatory. Once upon a time these two properties were identical. The neighbours are selling up to move to a much larger property and listed their home with the same real estate agent we bought ours from. The estate agent started showing people at the weekend and two days later the neighbours accepted an offer. Housing crisis? Bah humbug.

The purchasers are getting a total bargain - they're paying around £50,000 less than we paid for ours just over a year ago... and their extension has already been done. I'm sad our neighbours are moving as we have a friend in common (co-incidentally) and they're really lovely. I'm also rather fond of their cat, who was actually born in our house. I'm particularly sad at having paid *so much more* for our house! Oh well.
