Flexibility Of Desire

Recommended Posts

How flexible the Fixed price is? Discuss

Why would someone put this kind of statement in such circumstances? Or the Offers in excess. I though its better to get an offer to taste the market (you can always say no) rather than putting in excess of.

I look at such properties and go past but really have the urge to place a lower bid.

May do it when ready to plunge in the market ;) but not yet.

When my place was marketed the Estate Agent recommended, since the market was tending down, to set a low price and use the 'offers in excess of' pricing. It didn't work as buyers just offered lower than the price quoted as I suspect they will with a 'fixed price' deal, especially now the market is looking iffy again.

At the end of the day a place is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, and that someone is the buyer. The seller can fantasise about whatever price he or she wishes :lol:

Added - I missed the link. That is one jaded history there. It is a clean looking house but certainly nothing special for the price and the fact it's gone STC twice means the sellers should be anxious to complete at a reasonable price - £120k tops I'd say in today's market. Give it 6 months and they'll probably be lucky to get even that ;)

According to Zoopla, houses on that street were selling for £30-45k in 1995. The UK median wage is up about 60-70% since that time.
