Called the agent this morning, they were really nice actually, and within about 10 mins, had 2 viewings booked. Keep us posted as to next viewings!
Thanks mate good luck for yours as well there

Hmm me thinks people work in mysterious ways. Oh well plod on as they say
Getting the viewings is half the battle so you are already in a winning position.

Well done

"...it's a bit dark, and the ceilings are low". Tip: if you want that bright, modern look, try to pick properties less than, say, 400 years old.

"...we're not sure about all the beams". Tip: if wood's not your thing, why not look for properties made out of brick and cement, rather than picking the ones made out of wood?

Hang on in there, Smarties, it'll be worth it in the end!


yep i had similar to that , i am sure some just look for a day outing

Biggest wind up i had was a young lady , with her mate and her father came to view the place , and i thought to myself well she looks young to be able to afford this ! but maybe the dads gonna help out or maybe move in u know ? so didnt think much of it ,anyways after about a hour of showing them round and serving them coffee in the best posh crockery (the Peak district collection in red ) She calmly says oh i wish i could afford it !! But its out of my price range !! So i said well can move a couple of thousand , She says well i need it about £ 50,000 cheaper !! As thats all i got !!!

Not impressed as you can imagine .
