We offered on one and we beaten by a cash buyer who offered above asking! That was 6 weeks ago and they have now completed.
Its probably a good thing as we can't actually sell ours.

Ours went on the market last week. Not a single viewing so far. We thought we had priced it realistically (ie much lower than the valuation a year ago).

We have just accepted an offer 12% below asking price. We put it on the market for slightly more than the agent recommended 4 weeks ago.

yup. asking prices 365, sold for 352750

sold on friday
asking price offer achieved, though we set our asking price at 10% lower than last year's selling prices, which no-one round here seems to be doing.

We sold ours in July and actually got 3k over our asking price,although it wasn't a private buyer as we sold to a housing association.
However,I do think we were exceptionally lucky as we thought it would take months to sell.

Good to see some positives on this thread. We're selling in Scotland which is meant to be a bit more bouyant than the market here but 8 weeks in we've had one viewing and nothing doing. Particularly frustrating as we've had to move down to England and are renting so in total we're paying the equivilant of our mortgage 3 times over to cover both properties.

we just bought a house for £154,000. asking price was £175,000.
