for you. Thats far too much crap property luck in a year, I wish I could make it better.
FWIW, we still think prices will drop at some point over the next year...maybe as much as 15%. Could be wrong, but in spite of all current mad prices in our area, are still moving into a rental in 2 weeks (having sold at last, after losing 2 buyers in the past 12 months just like you) with this firmly in mind.
Meantime, gazuming is horrible and should be illegal and I'm really sorry. Buy yourself that large drink, and hang in - you'll get there.
Join the gazumped gang... I hope you were overbid before you paid for survey.... We have been overbid twice already in different cities. We will have to go into rental again unless a miracle happens...
