House reduced again
Well we have reduced our house by a further 25 grand
When we put the house on the market it was for 40 grand more than now. We are offically the cheapest house of it's size in the area. In fact there are houses in other not as nice or popular areas than ours that are dearer. Surely to God that should get us a buyer
Just wanted to wish you best of luck with house sale,were in exactly the same situation as yourself our house has been on market almost 6 months and only had 2 viewings ,hubby wont drop the price any more just because market is bad .
so dont know what will happen in the end we got our visa 10 days ago and have till 3rd April 2009 to enter Australia,so have got abit of time yet but still not optimistic that it is going to happen as things are only supposed to get worse,we cant rent the house as we need the money to pay for flights,and shipping etc ,just typical it's come right at the wrong time.
when do you have to be in Australia?
We have till 28th February to validate
We can't rent either as wouldn't get enough in the rental to cover everything. Our Estate Agent reckons it will take at least 5 years for the market to recover in Northern Ireland. Our house prices went up at a ridiculous rate. If we had sold last summer we would have got 105 grand more that what our house in on for now that means the houses in this area went from 83000 to 310000 in 8 years-unbelievable
We are so stressed about it so if we don't get any more viewers will drop again in a few weeks
Great, just seen on the news they are putting George Best's old family home up for sale.
I've no bloody hope now
Deep breaths and a big glass of wine.
Will be an alcoholic by the time I get out there

It must be so frustrating - visa granted and can't sell house. Fingers crossed someone is just round the corner.
