lucky you.........everybody is one the ceiling when we ahve a viewing.talked about stressed...its the kids i feel sorry for
not much fun at the weekend when all they see and hear is mum and dad squabbling because of someone coming to look at the house.
i wish i could pick and choose the viewing times and days (would choose midweek when the kids are in school), but, its a buyers market and they call the shots.

Our estate agent said they dont work after 5, so I insisted they arrange the viewing around their times, after all they are getting a good percentage of the sale. Let them earn their money thats what I say.

Fantastic news, well done.

We to had an offer just over a wk ago bit lower than what we wanted but hay at least we are on our way now, the housing market as dropped so its better than a validation trip we thought.

good luck, all the best.

They have upped the offer this morning, still not as high as we would like but we've told them that we are 99% sure we are going to accept.

We have 2 more viewings, today and tomorrow. We shall wait until we have completed those before confirming we are going to accept.

So we are nearly there, shiny new visas to come soon.

Thats brilliant news! Well done. You never know though one of your new viewers may put in an offer and start a bidding war. How cool would that be

I would grab it, we have just had an offer on our house £18500 under the asking price and we are off in 4 weeks so we accepted it. The way we looked at it was it would cost us money to leave it empty, the buyers have no chain and we have never had the money in the 1st place.

tell me about it! We had 4 viewings Sunday and I made the kids stay outside the whole time! Its much more stressful than i thought it would be. With 3 hyperactive boys its difficult to keep the house 'show home style'. The last viewer didn't even bother to turn up. it was 6pm by that point and I'd had a gut full!
