    Advice on putting in an offer 16th Apr 17 at 7:37 PM
    Me and my husband have been looking to buy a house for awhile now. We are due to view a property tomorrow that seems perfect for us. Its a property that has just come back onto the market because the chain has fallen through. The estate agent said the sellers are desperate to sell because of this.

    We are first time buyers in no chain with an AIP and ready to move as quick as possible. The property was originally listed in October 2016 @ £279,950 and now its been listed @ £289,950. Does this seem like a reasonable amount to increase it by in that space of time?

    The house itself is a 3 bed semi and not many have sold in the area over the last couple of years, so its hard to judge.

    Myself and my partner need a home. So we are buying a house. The mortgage is only twice our joint income. The house is suitable for our long term needs and is in a nice area. If we waited for political or financial stability we would be waiting forever and we ain't getting any younger!

    Makes you wonder why the central banks had to step in and save the market doesn`t it?
