Hi don't post very often but always on the site reading others comments.
We have our visas and was hoping to go between January and March. The big problem is we have still not sold the house. It has been on the market since end May and we have had 2 offers one early on, 30K below asking price, which was quickly rejected. We then had another offer, 25K below asking and we asked them to come up slightly but they refused so we declined that offer.
Then the Northern Rock thing happened and it has gone very quite. There is another prospective buyer who is keen on the house but they have also got to sell. The media is predicting gloom and doom in the property market and saying the market is going to crash which is fine if you are buying and selling but when you are trying to release your capital it is a total nightmare and we could see all our equity go down the pan.
The Estate agents have assured us the price is right at present and it is well presented etc but there are just no buyers around at present.
Is anybody else struggling with house sales? It just might make me feel better to speak to others in the same boat.
