just had an offer for a cash buyer for our two bed apartment - lower than we hoped (around 2006/7 prices) but more than we paid for it. They want it as a quick sale so we'd have to rent for a bit before bing again. should i take it/ am scared the market will suddenly bounce back and i won't be able to buy again

Take it, the market is going down, not up
Repossessions are rising and property won't go back up for another few years from what I can see

Yes I think the market will go down for annother 12-24 months, remember by having sold it you will also be saving interest on the mortgage and the mortgage rates are likely to go up in the near future.

Take it, take it.

Take it. Its really hard for 1st time buyers to get mortgages so you aren't going to have queues of people wanting a flat. You are still making a profit and you will have a good buying position when you are out of a chain. You could specify a date that you want to complete by in case they dither and the market drops further.

Rent unless you see something that you can get at a knock down price.
