Buyer pulled out - put back on market or accept a low historical offer?
I put my house on the market back in August '23 for £550,000. Two people (finally) made offers in the same week just before Xmas, of £535k and £545k, in the end I accepted the offer of £545k. Buyer has just pulled out for medical/health reasons. The other party is still interested but at £530k. Question is, do I accept this lower offer (or ask for £535k) OR put it back on the market (according to a few news articles prices may have gone up slightly)? They were pretty insistent that they couldn't go up much more.
