Three-bedroom family home in County Durham goes up for auction for just £10,000

Bargain hunters are in with a chance to buy a three-bedroom terraced home in County Durham for just £10,000 – less than the cost of a luxury second-hand Rolex watch.

The property in Stockton, County Durham is currently one of the cheapest properties currently listed for sale – costing around 96 percent less than the average property price in the UK.  

The three-bedroom family home on Tithe Barn Road is ‘in need of updating’ – but agents say it could fetch a profit if it was resold after a few improvements. 

For a buyer putting down a standard 10 percent deposit of just £1,000, monthly mortgage repayments would work out at just £62 over a 15-year period for the North East home. 

The house has garnered plenty of interest since the auctioneers listed the property and is nearly £1,000 cheaper than a 2020 edition second-hand Datejust Rolex watch – which retails on average for £10,995.
