Its up with dual agents and we put an offer in with one and someone else has an offer in with the other EA.

Vendor (developer) has said its a first to sell gets it.

How on earth do we get our house sold quickly? But for a near asking price.

can u put up a link to your house? i love seeing the suggestions people make. do you think the photos do your house justice? so often they don't.

You can try all the usual tricks, like making coffee etc, and decluttering makes a big difference, but the one thing that really made our house sell quickly last time was the agent bringing buyers around consecutively with a small overlap to create the impression of competition!

Have a open house? I've been to one and there was a massive buzz about it. . Lots of people going straight outside and getting on the phone and the house was under offer by the end of the day. If you only have it on for an hour or so then hopefully lots of people will overlap.

Wow. Lovely house. If you are moving to somewhere nicer it must be amazing!

Depending on market it should sell quickly surely?

Your house is just what we are looking for and in our budget... but wrong location ARGGHH. Good luck! I am sure you will sell it really quickly, it's lovely

JamInMyWellies Wed 02-Apr-14 18:45:43

Now any offers??

MamaPingu Wed 02-Apr-14 18:49:49

I will offer you my savings for it but you aren't allowed to see how much until you give me the keys wink

House is gorgeous.

I would have a look at what's on locally at the same price/a bit less and try to think realistically about whether yours would be first choice for someone with that amount to spend. If not - reduce the price.

Have you seen this thread down Property/DIY OP?

They might want YOUR house!!

<waits, hopefully>

Thw floor plan makes it look like you have no bathroom. I'd ask the agents to change that. Lovely house though.

Madamecastafiore Thu 03-Apr-14 05:23:56

Oooohhh ow exciting, I actually know where your house is!! Where is your forever house??

Allice Thu 03-Apr-14 06:22:59

Yours is lovely, sure it will sell in no time. I'm just up the road from you in Colchester.

Good luck!
