I know you are. 40k below asking price, or just over 10% reduction.

TBH I don't think they will hang about. They went all the way down the road on another property only to find a defect in the title that meant it wasn't mortgageable. They have a cash buyer for theirs chomping at the bit.

I predict we will meet in the middle, which I will be happy with.  :y

Which is probably what they are expecting.

I hate buying selling houses. I hope to never move again.

I suppose it all depends if the original asking price is a true representation of what the house is worth. Estate agents often 'ensnare' sellers by suggesting they initially put the house on the market at an over-inflated price........only to reduce the price when nobody bites.  If it sells for 5% below the real value of the property this could be considered a reasonable offer.

We have no idea where house values are going. Brexit may cause a slump in price, or a price rise. Who knows.

Nice simple little job this morning...removed the old original auto gear shift leather gaiter and fitted a nice new one.

Looks quite smart and apart from the pita sewing the leather back together all done and sorted for less than a tenner :) ;) :)

A 10% under asking price offer is surely just an opening gambit? If you are willing to accept 5% under asking price, they've still got a great deal. If they're 'chomping at the bit', use that to your advantage. Although how much of the actual true situation they are telling you is debatable, you'd be surprised the tricks folk get up to when parting with their cash.

Good luck, mate.

Perhaps.....perhaps not. :)

My experience of buying and selling houses is that it rarely runs smoothly.

Well done to move a house that quick! I think the average (ATM) is about 18 weeks.

On a side note, nitty gritty as a phrase is frowned up on.

ORIGIN 2: one theory is that "nitty-gritty" refers to the debris left in the bottom of a slave ships at the end of a voyage. Hence, use of the term is highly contentious and has been banned by the police.

Although I'm sure I read something about it being acceptable again now, which obviously I can't find.

Whatever next?

Removing golliwogs from jam jars.  :)

So, house has been on the market for three weeks today and we have an offer on the table.  :y

Need to press a bit more as its not enough, but its not daft either... time to get down to brass tacks as my granny used to say.  8)


I suggest you insist they arrange a survey ASAP once a price is agreed.

It's easy to put an offer in as it costs nothing. Once people realise the next step will cost them money they may 'rethink'.
