    Vendor not found a house in two months and a dream house cheaper just came to market 7th Oct 17 at 5:15 PM
    Hi when i put my offer on as a first time buyer i was told that vendor has a place he likes. That was nearly two months ago but i did tell EA i would like to be in by Christmas.
    Problem is now that a house cane to market for considerably less money and in a much much more desirable location and very close to the office.
    I went to see it and EA told me that the vendor would assure me that i would be in for Christmas if i put an offer on.
    I feel very bad about it but the house i put the first offer the vendor is unlikely to find something this side of Christmas after speaking with EA.

    Can i withdraw my offer? And be honest aboit finding a cheaper home closer to the office?
    I m not sure what to do but if i don't offer on the cgeap house Monday morning it will fly.

    My only major concern with house 2 is the on street parking but vendor says they never had issues finding a parking space not always in front of house but on the road.

    When you say it is close to the town centre, is there a likelihood that the council will make your street resident permit holders only?

    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...
