Default After 6 months we've finally sold it!!!!

The house has been sold...the house has been sold!!

A bit spooked actually... I had a dream the other night that a guy came round to view, we were having a crack in my dream and he said he came from Seascale, a place I used to live 25 years ago.

Anyway, next morning, the phones rings, it's the estate agents..Oh hello Mrs Smith we have a viewing for you a Mr ******, from Seascale:scared: :scared:

I've got really good vibes cos' I remember my dream from the previous night.
I opened the door and he's only australian:scared: :scared:

Well he's in for about 10 mins, makes an offer on the spot, cash buyer!! 1k below asking.

Needless to say I accept, Goodbye Cumbria...hello Perth!!!

Thanks everyone, I was getting really worried we would be stuck with the damn thing..

On the verge of desperation ,I tried the feng shui tip that was on here. 5 days later and after having no viewers since last September, 4 were booked in for this weekend:scared: .

Somebody has definitely been looking down on us.

My sphinxter is now in overdrive!!!

Oh I'll certainly try.. the housing market seems to be picking up..loads of sold sign gone up round here that had been for sale for ages.

I think at the end of the day if a house is marketed competitively it should sell, we were valued at 180k last July. Similar properties but without conservatories were 5k less. 2 weeks ago we decided to market at offers over 160k. Accepted 159k. They've got a bloody bargain.

PS. I usually only predict air crashes and one usually happens within 2 weeks of the dream.

Dreamt of one last night:scared:
