Our house has been on the market for 11 months. We have had one offer withdrawn, one which we rejected, and now we are (apparently) about to receive another.

So, countdown begins.

<<gets hopes up>>

Fingers crossed for you.

SybilBeddows Thu 16-Jun-11 16:14:40

fingers crossed for you!

SquishyCinnamonSwirls Thu 16-Jun-11 16:15:22

Good luck!!!

Fimbo Thu 16-Jun-11 16:17:36

Oh lots of luck and vibes here Pinkjenny.

Pinkjenny Thu 16-Jun-11 16:18:09

Thanks. I am shitting myself extremely calm and composed about the whole thing.

Fimbo Thu 16-Jun-11 16:45:08

The hanging is just shit. You just want them to get on with it either they want it or they don't. I am the most impatient person ever and I hate that not knowing one way or the other feeling. Sometimes you want to get the folk that are doing this and strangle them. I realise they may be deliberating but jeezus get on with it.

Pinkjenny Thu 16-Jun-11 16:48:06

I know, and in my heart of hearts, I don't really want a buyer like this. I want someone who sees it, wants it, and puts an offer in.

But then I am an impetuous type.

Fimbo Thu 16-Jun-11 16:51:12

Dh is the cautious one and I am more heart on my sleeve. He usually does the talking because if I like something I would probably just offer the asking price there and then!

Pinkjenny Thu 16-Jun-11 16:54:26

Ah, me too.

Honneybunny Thu 16-Jun-11 20:51:31

oh, fingers crossed for you pinkjenny.
wishing you good luck!

Good luck! (Am in a similar situation...)

Pinkjenny Fri 17-Jun-11 10:54:21

Still nothing. And it is strictly 25 hours now.

Fimbo Fri 17-Jun-11 10:57:39

How fecking annoying. What's the deal, you either want a house or not? God I hate fecking dithery people. I hope you hear something soon.

Pinkjenny Fri 17-Jun-11 10:58:45

Fimbo - I cannot concentrate in work, just sitting here willing the phone to ring. Bloody hesitant bastards. Why can't they just get on with it?

My friend has had no luck selling her house and has to move as her dh has been in his new role for 18mths and is living with her dad, whilst she is here with the dc. They have now resigned themselves to renting theirs out and renting where her dh is. A lady phoned eager to view my friend's property and then 10 minutes before she was due phoned to say she still wanted to see it but had been called away on urgent business. She didn't make another appointment despite saying she still wanted to see it. As I said to my friend if your dc falls and breaks a leg or something than yes 10 minutes before a viewing you could understand a trip to A & E. But an urgent business trip? Even my dh's urgent business trips would give him more notice.

Game players. We had the same.

Fizzylemonade Fri 17-Jun-11 12:11:26

Bet they are discussing strategy, like, we'll go in at this price, and if that gets rejected then we'll offer this. etc etc <hopeful>

We counter offered, they came in at one price we said no but if you come back at this price, we'll take it. And they did.

Pinkjenny Fri 17-Jun-11 14:00:46

I really want to ring the EA, but I know there is absolutely no point, because when they have news, they will ring me.

But I still want to.

Fimbo Fri 17-Jun-11 14:06:43

Phone them PJ, I would.

Pinkjenny Fri 17-Jun-11 14:07:30

Fimbo, you are such an enabler grin

Pinkjenny Fri 17-Jun-11 14:10:53

As predicted, no news. It doesn't look good, does it?

<<hope slowly ebbs away>>

Fimbo Fri 17-Jun-11 14:14:26

LOL. I am feeling your pain.sad You don't know. If dh wasn't married to someone with the same line of thinking as him, then he would probably spin his decisions out like this especially in the current climate. Whereas he gets his head nipped so much by me, that he does anything for a quite life. I do let him deliberate but not for too long.wink

Fimbo Fri 17-Jun-11 14:15:09

Hmmm quite live would be good but quiet is better.
