It is a big matter of what you are going to take obviously, but I have been wondering how much I could get out of this house. I am not interested in selling it really. In fact I am wondering more what it is worth if I wanted to borrow money against it. For example you can go to this site, http://www.wepaythemost.co.uk and they say they will give you an instant online valuation and they talk about three easy steps to quick cash. I am quite sure that what they mean is not the same thing as what I am interested in. When they are making that sort of offer, the terms are going to favor them as sure as the sun shall shine in the morning. That only makes sense. They are not going to be giving you a price that you could be dreaming of taking. However they would probably give me a good estimate of what I could borrow on this place, even if they did not intend to do it.
My plans are not very solid at the moment, but this friend of mine has a pretty good business idea and he needs a nice bit of money. I am going to take a look at his idea and think about it really hard before I do anything, but of course I need to know how deep I can afford to get in. That is something that is important. Of course I did not really put much money in this house myself. It originally belonged to my great aunt and it was in pretty poor shape when I bought it. I have done a lot of work though and it is now worth a great deal more than it was when I first started work on the place.
