Put the house up for sale in June, with no sale, decided to put it up for rent few wks ago. Yesterday we had a viewing for a cash buyer, but didn't get our hopes up. Then this morning we had a viewing for renting. Whilst the couple were still here, telling me how much they loved the house and would def like to rent it, we had a phonecall from the estate agents with an offer!!! We've now accepted the offer and completely feel like a weight has been lifted! I know we were lucky to have renting out as an option, but it would have been a bit of a struggle.
HUGE luck to all those waiting on a sale/tenants for their homes, it WILL all work out for you, just try and stay positive.
