News From The Slough Of Despond

Recommended Posts

There are far too many Vested or otherwise underclothed Interests trying to talk up the price of property. It is the duty of all hairy bears to fight back by undermining sellers' confidence and helping the poor souls find their way back to reality.

I have this day issued another Derisory Offer, listen carefully and you will hear the joyful sound of estate agents gnashing their teeth, and possibly a little wailing on the side.

Asking price: £345k

Offer: £265k

Response: No, was hoping for £300k.

A bit of reality creeping in, wouldn't you say.

Got another one next week.

That's hilarious. They clearly hold a doctorate in negotiation skills.

I would honestly go through the motions at 300 then offer the suckers 265 at the final moments. How much would it cost you and would be worth the fun if they said no anyway.
