Good luck. Hope your sale come though quick. We had to drop our price by 13k that was Sept last year. The offers came flooding, no bidding wars. They all offered the same price and it was down to who ever could get survey and deposit done the quickest.
Hi well after a year and a bit of having the houes on the market, loads of interest 2 offers that have fell through, we now have our 3rd offer and fingers crossed this is the one. The offer was £25,000 below the valuation and we managed to get them to come up by £5,000 so a drop of £20,000 from the valuation but only a drop of £10,000 to what we paid 2 years ago. We just weren't prepared to wait any longer and I'm expecting our 3rd child so this will hopefully mean we can make the move before baby arrives. We will be coming with very litttle money are determination to make it work.
Hope you get the quick sale you are after.

Good luck. We dropped our price significantly too. In the end we sold it for what we had paid for it 4 years previously and we had done a lot of repair work to it in that time too. I think once you are here it becomes less of an issue. We don't think about our past life very much or 'what ifs' we just get on with enjoying our here and now.
obviously i can't tell you what to do but it took us 15 months to sell ours and we dropped 45k in the end!
the bit by bit dropping doesn't do anything really (my opinion) - the others will do the same and if you drop big time yours will stand out!
all i wanted out of the sale was to cover the expense for the move and 6months living.
we didn't have a job to go to - and the 30k (pounds) disappeared in a flash!
BUT i'd do it again! - we left limbo land and now we are so much happier :)
money is not everything!!
