A woman hoping to move to Norfolk was dumbfounded after the for sale price went up from £475,000 to £630,000.
Sharon Bruchez, 58, who lives in Staffordshire, was hoping to view a new build in Happisburgh for sale on Rightmove – until the price soared.
It turned out to be an error on the part of estate agents Abbotts in Wroxham which had other people also questioning why the price had suddenly gone up.
Kelvin Dore, branch partner, said: “Someone got the price wrong, no viewings have been made yet as the property has only gone live on Rightmove but it was rejigged in terms of its layout compared to the original plan. It was a genuine error and not a case of ‘Rachmanism.’”
He said the branch was now trying to find Mrs Bruchez a suitable property for the right price.

Mrs Bruchez said: “I was fuming, I’ve decided to move to Norfolk on medical grounds and I found this property for £475,000 which was perfect but when I came to book a viewing later that day, the price had gone up to £630,000.
“I thought to myself, now that’s what you really call a house price rise.”
