Estate agent flooded with calls after London property worth £1million is accidentally listed for £1
AN ESTATE agent was inundated with calls when a £1 million property was accidentally listed for £1.
An employee at Robert Irving Burns said the phone had been ringing off the hook with excited buyers desperate to bag themselves a massive bargain.
But they were left disappointed when they told the rock bottom price was due to an error by a third party.
The office space, which is just a stone's throw from Euston Station in London, is on a street where the average property is worth £1,025,303.
It's described as a "well located mid terrace building" featuring a kitchen and office space and is actually up for auction with a guide price of £950,000.
The property is still listed on Rightmove for £1, but other auction websites are advertising it at its genuine estimated value.
The employee at Robert Irving said: "This has been a mistake by a third party.
We've had quite a lot of interest! We're trying to get it changed."
The commercial space is a mere 0.2 miles away from Euston station, meaning it has excellent transport links within London and to other areas of the UK.
London St Pancreas and Kings Cross station are also close by, making international travel a doddle.
Moreover, the space, on Euston Road, is a short space from University College London and Regent's Park and is estimated to yield £54,580pa from a potential tenant.
Robert Irving Burn has been contacted but declined to comment. The property is due to be auctioned on September by Allsop Auctions.
