Has only been just over three weeks and we have a buyer, and one thats offered us just a few thousand under asking price.
So please please please do not give up if you are tring to sell right now, or have tried without much luck last year.

There is a real postive feel in housing market right now, if anything there is a massive shortage which will not improve soon, which is great news for those investing in property.

Thought I would share the good news, especially to all the doom and gloom merchants suggesting that I should knock 20% or more off the asking price (:

Well I reported Jane's posts about the threatening PMs which MNHQ have now deleted as there was no substance to them... much hot air...

Jane are you really that naive and inexperienced that you are celebrating and crowing because you've accepted an offer?

It will probably work out, but many, many don't. Particularly in the current housing market. Our neighbours have accepted three offers near asking price since going on the market 6m ago. ALL 3 have fallen through due to the buyers not being able to get a mortgage (surveyor valued under offer price on last one). Not sure why you are trying to pretend that it is buoyant, when any idiot can see that it's not (whether you think that is a good or bad thing).

You might be lucky. But you are not representative of the housing market in your area alone. Have you looked at land registry sold prices?

Weird, weird attitude.

I have to assume 'jane' is an industry plant- no-one else is that concerned about 'buoyant markets'. hmm

We went almost to completion last year, pulled out due to all sorts of issues, mainly flooding, but the poor buyer had been on the market for 10 mo, still on now, and loads more properties in the same area are just not shifting at all.

Well it's not over until the fat lady sings as they say. I've seen so many houses repeatedly under offer and back on the market again.

RCheshire - thank you for thinking of me smile

Badvoc Sun 27-Jan-13 09:52:32 were such a help to me - whether you realise it or not - in 2011 when we were selling/buying.
So a belated thank you from me.
Cuddy...hope things get moving for you soon.
I also live in an area where property does seems to be selling BUT I actually realise that this is just not the case in the rest of the Uk or indeed globally.
I don't assume that it means a housing market recovery is in the way!!
