    Lower offer days before Exchange and Completion

    Lower offer days before Exchange and Completion 16th Sep 17 at 7:22 PM
    We accepted offer 10k below asking price as buyers said they had cash and wanted to complete quickly. Suppose to exchange and complete in a weeks time and now they state they want another 5k off even though the survey was good and the surveyor valued the property at price agreed. We have told them 'no' and put the property back onto market as we did have a lot of interest and it was on market less than a week when we agreed the lower price. Never had this done to us before, is this common?

    Why do you think they need help to work out what is sensible advice? As I said, most people can spot posters who have large mortgages trying to say that this is the way to go, while trying to shut down any discussion that says it might not be the way to go just as easily as they can spot someone who is obviously talking nonsense. IMO when the future PM is talking the HPC talk I am not talking nonsense

    Quick Update - We completed on the sale of the property at the original price with the new buyer who was a delight to deal with. So in less than 8 weeks the sale was completed and the new buyer delighted. Glad we stuck to our decision. Thanks for all the support we got.

    Great news!

    Taking the reduced price would be far less stressful in the long run in this market, IMO.
