House selling - encouraging start!

Recommended Posts

Guest Chris_J

We had exactly the same. Daughter came to look and never heard anything again, usual BS they're tyre kicking to see what their money buys in the area....

We've taken ours off the market until we get back from Adelaide reccie in April.

 

We have until May 2017 to make the move, so getting in a panic about selling isn't worth it.

We're giving ours one last blast on the market at a reduced price then going to have to go down the rental route and come with very little safety net money - yikes!

Technically we have until 2016 but really want to get sooner than as I think our ages may go against us employment wise!

I wouldn't think so, if you have the skills I'm sure you'll be fine! I'm looking forward to my reccie now, although not so much the 24 hour flight with two little ones!

Hi Gus, just wanted to reassure you that the flight with 2 little ones isn't as bad as you expect. We did a reccie last year with a 3 year old and 18 month old and all in all they were really good - lots of things to keep them entertained on the flight, air hostesses were great with the baby and its even better if you have a basinette seat (our little girl was a bit too long for it but still slept well in it with her legs over the end!) Enjoy your reccie!

Just saw this post, thanks! I hope you are right, my little boy can barely keep still for 2 minutes, let alone 24 hours!!!

Good luck with the viewings! I hope you both get buyers now.

 

It's quite a relief having property off the market. I know we only had it on the market for about 6 months, but it was a real drag! Not looking forward to re-listing it in April.

Well the feedback was as follows:

 

Lovely house which needs a bit cosmetic work to their taste - fine that's good

 

It is definitely on our short list and we may ask for a second viewing - depends how long their short list is .....mmmmm!

 

Would have preferred a normal type house with the door at the front - well if you look at the pictures of the house IT SHOWS NO DOOR ON THE FRONT!!!!!!

 

They loved the feel and atmosphere in the house - good as they did say that when viewing.

 

Well from that I reckon we wave bye to them :-((

Well, the house went back on the market yesterday and we have a viewing for tomorrow and Saturday already.

 

Not getting too excited this time, just need to look at the first post in this thread!

Well viewing on Saturday.........daughter and mum shown round with viewer from estate agents. Feedback was good!

 

Went out on Saturday and on he way back phone call for he same viewer to comeback and look round again with her partner.

 

Wife showed them round and they seemed very interested.

 

Rang the estate agent on Tuesday for some feedback and they came back with that they have put an offer in...............wait for it £25,000 under the asking price!!!!!!!

 

Needless to say we said no we are negotiable but that is taking the p*ss!! Reason for that offer is that would mean that they would not need to pay stamp duty.

 

I know it is a buyers market but we are not willing to give it away!!

 

They have not comeback with a counter offer.............Oh well onwards and upwards.

Ahh, that's annoying! Fingers crossed they do come back in with a reasonable offer.

 

We ARE leaving in January, even if I need to take a slightly lower offer or just rent the house! Apparently the housing market (in our part of Cardiff anyway) is the best it's been since 2007. If you know anyone who wants a nice 4 bed semi in a lovely area of cardiff, with good schools point them in my direction!!!

Well, we got an offer today which was 30k below asking and about 20k less than we'd accept. Another viewing with different people tomorrow, so hopefully we see an improved offer....

Well, the woman who made the offer viewed again on Friday and is considering upping her offer. We also have viewings tomorrow, Fri & Sat.

 

Surely we are due some luck!
