Following my confused rant thread....we went for a 2nd viewing just now, and want to make an offer. The EA (who we actually trust, unusually ) says there have been a few in this morning already, following the open house on Saturday. I'm sure its true, because wrecks are few and far between here, and people love them.
We know our upper limit, give or take a few thousand, but should we go in near it - to 'stand out' - or start lower?
And what happens if they have several around the same mark, does it go to sealed bids or something?
I feel so clueless, been years since we bought/sold
Good luck & I really hope you get it, but for what it's worth, I'd concentrate your efforts on getting your own property exchanged as if there are a number of interested parties you may find they won't even consider a bid from someone who hadn't exchanged however 'close' they were - I'm afraid bitter experience as both buyer & seller has taught me a deal isn't done until it's done.
Thanks, and yes, we are definitely putting most of our energy into the selling atm...thankfully, our buyer is not in a chain, has the money, and is in a hurry too and is doing all he can to speed things along so we're fairly optimistic. We had two deals collapse (around Nov last year, not surprisingly!) so know the burnt feeling!
Currently in 'what will be will be' mode but it may not last
