Just what the title says really. A friend is in the enviable position of being able to buy with cash, but she's not originally from this country and hasn't bought in the UK before. I can see having cash and no chain makes you an attractive buyer but how much does or should that translate into a lower offer - anyone have any thoughts?
Thanks. Yes, no chain. Good point that what matters in this situation is really the situation of the seller - so the cash/no chain thing might be a big bargaining chip for someone in a hurry to move; but not make much difference for someone who's not in a hurry.
The house market really confuses me at the moment. It seems really slow in lots of places, but this is north London (zone 2) so I'm not really sure how much the doom and gloom applies there.
