  1. Buyers regret.. https://www.mumsnet.com/Talk/property/4294780-Huge-moving-regrets We lived in a big hoyse in a beautiful place but had overstretched ourselves on both the size of the property and the cost. last year we sold to a local family and to help their elderly family move before Christmas we ended up renting in some dire rural holiday let for 4 months during winter lockdown whilst searching for something. After turning down a lovely place that was out of our budget we bought in a local town near to where we moved from. I hate it. We were desperate and if we hadn't bought everything would have gone up 30k while we were renting. I wanted a quiet road, it's really busy, I wanted character, it's got none. Couple of the neighbours are aggressive and noisy. There's a small industrial estate nearby with drilling going on all day (all shut when we viewed). There's no sense of community here it's just a commuter dormitory town. The garden is crap, overlooked and noisy. I miss where we were so much but houses are not even coming to market there before being sold. I know we have to be patient and have friends there looking out for anyone selling but I wish we'd never moved now and just worked harder. I can't stop crying about what we've lost and how stupid we were to rush into this. If nothing comes up by Sept would you just market the house anyway?
