That's so awful. If it was me I'd want to say 'no xxxxxxxxx' need apply. :curse: All you can do is put it back on - go with a different agent though - offer them an incentive - an extra .5% if they can sell it quickly - money talks. We had our house on the market for five months with one agent - nothing. We changed, offered her an extra .5% over the asking price and got $2k more and in a week and a half. You've got nothing to lose.

What?

"No Irish, No dogs, No blacks"?

(Popular sign in the UK property market in the 1960's, if any youngster is confused)

Well, considering one of those would apply to me - I know it sounds awful but we're all only human and at least the Irish only came to build the roads, not steal them

Just to put things straight........

I have many friends, really good ones, who are from all ethnicity's. I am not racist by any stretch of the imagination.

But to be fair, my black mates are the ones who warned me against selling to them. Apparently most Nigerians are diplomats

:curse:Flippin' heck Nici. That's a bit of a bummer. I would be tempted to ask for a non refundable deposit for any future buyers. I told Steve to do that when he was selling his flat but he wouldn't. Would have made a fortune out of doing it my way.

Think positive, you will get another buyer who is genuine. It may take a little bit longer but you will get out there to NZ. Sending you karma......

You've probably already looked at this but, can you remortgage to an interest only? We've looked at this as our mortgage is high too and rent wouldn't cover it, but changing to interest only would allow it. Is the rental market good there?
We don't have many diplomats in Preston, but lots of relatives of families in Blackburn, if you catch my drift, who pull similar stunts.

Don't have any real suggestions but just wanted to say take a couple of days to reassess your options - other replys seem to have some ideas about remortgaging and new agents - keep your chin up and perhaps there'll be some light at the end of the tunnel soon.
