You might want to look closely when buying a coastal home

This coastal home is for sale on the market for £25000 – £50000, which might seem as an absolute bargain at first sight. However, when looking at it more closely and doing some further research one can see that over the past 15 year (only 15 years!) the house has lost two of its neighbouring plots due to coastal erosion. So chances are pretty high that this lovely coastal home, which looks like such a bargain, might fall into the sea in the near future.  See the before and after photographs below (there really is just 15 years in between these two pictures):

In 1998: The house, near the centre of this picture, was on firmer ground before neighbouring buildings disappeared

Now: The house for sale is about 26ft from the edge of the cliff following December's surge tides at Easton Bavents near Southwold
