Are you saying that you could buy something in Poland for £20,000???!?!!
In the US you can buy a house for $50K. But it's in the country (Oklahoma, Nebraska, etc.). Same with Poland - you can buy a 50-year-old studio to renovate in a town of 5-20 thousands people (not in the city, nor in the Warsaw area for sure) for $40K. Note I wrote: "50 MILES from Warsaw".
I knew property was cheap
It's quite the contrary - property in good location in Poland is pretty much overpriced.
