    Waiting for a buyer... Anyone want to join me? 1st May 16 at 7:23 PM
    Anyone else out there selling and going through trying to keep the house tidy 24/7 so it doesn't take hours to sort out when there's a viewing?!
    Along with trying to second guess what the people viewing will do/offer/not offer...?

    Only been for sale a week, I assume it just gets worse from here on in?

    Not really done this before so thought I'd see if anyone else is in the same boat!

    well we have switched to our 3rd estate agent.....went up last Saturday and we have a viewing this Saturday. Keeping everything crossed, we've dropped the price again and really can't afford to take much lower, maybe 1 or 2k under the price but thats it

    Thank you. If we can sell then you are all definitely going to!

    I realise there are a few hurdles yet.

    Congratulations Kieron & SHS!!
    Good luck to those with viewings soon.

    I've just spoken to our EA, he said it's gone quiet on our road lately. He thinks we should knock 2-3k off the house price from £99.995 to get people through the door. I'm unsure though as we might be a bit close to the bone with having enough equity to move etc. We had one of the awful northern rock 'together' mortgages for 9 years ( didn't understand the loan part or all it involved till recently) we were 22 & had no idea
    What is everyone's opinion on putting it at overs over 95k ( would accept 98) or is it a silly idea?
