Default The buyers ARE out there!

Reporting from cold, damp, grey Gloucestershire:

Hearing your estate agent say that they have got an offer on your house is almost as good news as hearing your agent say that you have got your visa! But when is an offer ever enough?

£5k more would seal it for us. Only two houses in the chain too. I'd like to say that I am sitting here with everything crossed, willing this potential deal reaches a satisfactory conclusion but unfortunately I keep getting up and going to the fridge. Comfort eating could be the death of me!

Please, please, please send good vibes this way! (House, agents, buyers etc get the job done quickly or there won't be a lot of point in me packing any bikinis for the new life in Oz!)

Tense, nervous, Binbird

Hi Binbird,

Karma coming your way!

We're in the same position - have a buyer - all going through but still nervous that it may fall apart!!!!

Good luck to everyone in this stressful position!!!

Anyway, the nail will grow back. Hopefully you'll get a call with an increased offer soon!

Fingers crossed your buyer comes up with a few more readies for ya...BUT with a chain that short I'd be inclined to say 'bugger it' for the sake of 5K and I'd snap his hand off!!!!

Our chain is 5 deep and the plank at the bottom has buggered off abroad until March without leaving contact no. or power of attorney!!! It's looking more and more like back to the drawing board for us!

Hi Binbird, you're right the buyers are out there its just taking a wee bit longer! People seem to be waiting for this 'house price crash' to happen - then, like a january sale you'll be bombarded with people! Unfortunately house prices are so steep anyway, that most are too expensive for most buyers, a drop of 15% won't mean anything! I'm sure once people realise the price drop is a long way off, they'll get their backsides to Gloucester to view your house! Everything sells in the end!

[QUOTE=binbird]Reporting from cold, damp, grey Gloucestershire:

The latest update:

Agent has just phoned - we are going to have to wait until tomorrow to hear if our potential purchaser will put in a higher offer. It could be a long night! At least I've still got 9 finger nails!

Thanks for all the karma so far - this is definitely the worst bit of the whole visa thing so far. But at least it's progress! Good luck to everyone else going through the same.
