Well, a very strange viewing they hardly said a thing and when asked a question didn't answer. Only thing I got out of them is they will let us know tomorrow, did like house as its big. Lets see what happens tomorrow. Not holding out much hope.
Well they say if they are there only 10 mins and don't say a lot it's a good sign!
Good luck and I hope they come back with a positive.
Thanks Misplaced. Would be nice if it sold, we fly on the 30th Aug
How's everyone getting on with their sales - see you're all sorted irish stew - congratulations! We've had 4 viewings in3 months however thought I'd share our progress. We never dreamed renting our house out would be an option as we have no savings at all and need the equity out of the property. But it is and I'm so relieved we have safety net if the house doesn't sell before we want to go next March/April. It was seeing a comment on here and talking to others that have done it that pushed me to see a financial advisor. You can mortgage around 75% of the total value of your home on an interest only buy to let mortgage and as long as the rental is greater than the mortgage payment you're sorted. The equity on our property was less than 75% of the total so we will be able to release the difference to fund our dream!
Our house isn't moving at all. 5 viewings in about 7 or 8 weeks and not a sniff of an offer. Almost up poopus creekus. Not sure what to do now with regards renting out or hope for the next couple of months to change but we fly out on 30th September.
We're in much the same boat. Been on the market just over 3 months, and must have had about 10 viewings, but no offers. We are gonna knock £10k off the sale price, but if this doesn't work we are either going to book a reccie for March-time, or look into buy-to-let.
We have about 40% equity, so should be ok to free up a decent amount of money - it's just the hassle! Another viewing tomorrow so fingers crossed!

We have been on the market since the end of February and have had about 6 viewings, knocked 14,000 off the price and still no one wants it!
Rightmove figures are always up but no takers. Until the banks drop the 20% deposit I think selling will be very hard.
Here and settled
I think you're right Misplaced and goodness knows when that will be! Gus I think we established upon getting our visas that we're on the same time line :) We've thought about a reccie and it was our only option when we thought renting was not an option for us. However it seems the rental market is booming so if we don't sell that is our new plan B! Bit more risky than a reccie but cheaper on the pocket in the short term!
