hi i am a new member. i have just recently bought a house in poland and got married here to my polish wife, this is our experiance from the start: we came here to house hunt in one weekend.made contact with 3 estate agents only one of which bothered to get back to us.we chose a house from his web site, organised a viewing for next day on one house . we were told it had a kitchen ,bathroom , lounge , dining room and one bedroom. (kitchen was a health hazard,you would not have washed a dog in the bathroom, )heating boiler had blown up and we were told it was new. there was over 3 tonnes of rubbish and junk in the house, this also included maggots and rats (ime NOT JOKEING ) the house came with a barn , in there was over 100 dead chickens . 4 dead cats ,a floor of about 10 cm of dog crap , over 500 dead birds wings (please can someone help me understand this ) basically a scene from living hell. the estate agent was a complete liar,we were told the house was on the market for 6 months ,we now know it was 2 years and there had been over 60 viewings not 20 like we were told. they wanted 125, 000 we paid 95,000. the house is now a beautifull home believe it or not. BIG WARNING ON NEXT POST.!!!!!!

BIG WARNING AS PROMISED. have your money telegraphic transfered to a polish account if possible , but do not let them cash it till you have sat in their office and negotiated the exchange rate. this will save you many many thousands of zloty. we almost had our money changed in england so we could carry over cash, had we done so we would have lost 20,000 zloty on what we eventually had wired over , which was £20.000 .

I think it was złoty. For a piece of junk like that, with 100 dead chickens and dog poop I don't think anyone would pay that much in dollars.

LOL @ 100 dead chickens. You can just imagine the advert, a luxurious apartment, comes complete with 100 free dead chickens! lol

The person who sold you the house didn't by any chance have a name of BubbaWoo or GILES?

the estate agent was a complete liar

I'm quite sure Brian I wouldn't have chewed my food if I come across a property like that, I suppose the agent would have told his client it was a bargain property, good investment and that the property would be work a million zlote in a couple years time.

Is that what you tell your clients?

A close friend of mine recently bought an apartment in Krakow. To save on conversion rates in Poland they actually took the cash with them to Poland.

300,000 PLN !!!!!!!!

I bought my flat 3 years ago it took 2 hours to buy it, I am now interested in selling because i do not have the time to go there as often as I had hoped, does anyone have any idea how prices have faired over the last three years I paid 55000 Pln for it then , i am told that with the Pln to pound being high and the prices in Poland going up the prices have almost trebled is this correct???

You were told???
So you didn't go to actually see the place before spending the money?

lilisdad....do you have any pictures of your house? Im interested to see what you got for $95,000 in Poland. Its great to hear that you put a little TLC into the house. Most people are too lazy to see the better in things despite the negatives

Hello lilisdad
And welcome to the Polish Forum

I do not understand what you have written, it does read like you bought the place without looking at it.
Even the alternative does not make sence, you viewed the place and bought it, so what's the problem? Dead chickens or not?
And I really don't get your point, so what if the house was on the market for 6 months and it was really 2 years and there had been over 60 viewings not 20 like you were told?

You got a cheap house, I am happy you made it a home.
