    78k is a pretty good offer considering all that is going on just now, remember the next house will also be getting cheaper?

    Of what, that my original prediction of this house selling at 70k will be correct?

    Parliament, the EU and the PM don’t want a hard brexit and even the bookies give it 28/1, although undoubteldy the continuing uncertainty is affecting sentiment.

    Houses are not liquid and sometimes it takes a while to find the right buyer.
    Webuyanyhouse are well known to drop the price closer to exchange knowing people are desperate, so many people would advise you against them.

    Id give it even less chance than 1000/1 of a hard Brexit. Reason? It can only happen if EU veto an extension but it isnt in their interest to do so, theyd have free reign to give a long extension, which benefits the EU project image.

    What if May tried to do no deal on her own? JC will call a VONC which will 100% pass as their are enough conservatives who are more than happy to see the government fall than a no deal Brexit.

    So guys, dont worry about a no deal happening. Ironically, even as a remain voter, Id rather a no deal than Theresa Mays deal, but alas, deadlock.

    Crashy will be along shortly to ask exactly how much, but you can always make the answer as accurate as his prediction of a hard Brexit.

    Roughly 12 weeks from when it all started (your offer accepted and chain complete) to completion.


    (Usually around 7-14 days from exchange to completion, but could be a month or even on the same day, although I'd not recommend that.)
