A filthy Birmingham property has been sold for its asking price – despite shocking sales pictures of wall-to-wall squalor.

Advertising shots of the property in Short Heath Road, Erdington showed unmade beds, washing up left in the sink, filth on kitchen worktops and a rubbish-strewn living room.

The property has been snapped up for almost £115,000.

Despite the less than flattering photos, one buyer forked out £114,950 to land the property, estate agents Burchell Edwards have revealed.

That same figure could buy a three-bed house in trendy Kings Heath, a well-presented three-bed property in Small Heath or a spacious family home in Yardley.

Burchell Edwards would not reveal the buyer’s identity but said it was a commercial investor and contracts were being exchanged to transfer ownership.
