This House Is £105,000 Cheaper Because No One Wants To Live In It
Trying to get onto the property ladder is a tough gig, especially in the big cities.
You're fighting against young families, Baby Boomers wanting another investment home and everyone in between.
But every now and then, a house comes along that's an absolute steal and yet, for whatever reason, it just can't seem to sell.
Take this home for example. Cannot for the life of me work out why this place in North Lopham, Norfolk, doesn't want a buyer?
The former Methodist Chapel closed down five years ago and has been transformed into a three-bedroom place just dying for some new residents.
The lack of buyers might be down to the fact that there are a bunch of gravestones plonked in the garden and one can only assume a few bodies buried six feet under.
But if you're able to look beyond on the deathly appearance of the garden, there are a few delights to be had on the inside of the property. There's a pretty 'swanky' kitchen according to the Metro, and brand new bathrooms.

It's currently listed on the market for £495,000, which is £105,000 less than when it was first advertised last April. The owners have had such a tough time selling the property that they've had to drop the price again and again.
But, Emmerson Dutton, a partner at Bedfords office in Bury St Edmunds office, says it's not as grave a situation as it may seem.
"I am sure that the gravestones have been a factor in putting off some buyers," he said in a statement. "It is a very stylish property, but the activity levels around it have certainly been lower than we would expect.
"I think the people who are concerned about the graves don't go as far as asking for a viewing. We are not trying to hide the gravestones away so the details clearly show them.
"But although the house still has the original two doors at the front, the main entrance is at the back via driveway on the side.
"It means that people don't have to walk down the path between the graves into the house. Also when you are inside the house, you are not really overlooking the graves because of the layout inside.
"I am hoping that perhaps it might appeal to someone from outside the area."
