Subject to Contract
It was not quite as much as we would have liked but it is a reasonable offer and with the current state of the housing market we have decided to take it and run! Our buyers are chain free, already have a mortgage in principle and are local and want to stay local. All in all the few grand less that we will end up with seem worth it to be chain free (huge nightmare avoided!) and to be able to move reasonably quickly.
We added a couple of conditions to our acceptance (for one we have stated that under NO circumstances will we drop the price any lower) but they buyers were happy with everything so we are officially SOLD - Subject to Contract.
I am sure that i should be feeling happier about this - the trouble is that selling a house in the UK is such a hit or miss affair that until you get to the end of the selling process you dont actually know that you ARE going to get to the end - if you see what i mean. With both buyers and sellers able to pull out right up to the final moment it just seems far too early yet to celebrate.
So instead i am going to try not to think about it - at least for the next couple of weeks when i cant do anything to move things along anyway. i have loads of other stuff to organise for our move so there is plenty to keep me occupied - i think i will start with the shipping quotes, although i am not looking forward to finding out how expensive it is to transport things to the other side of the planet.
