Looks like I'll have to move back to Penrith.

I dont think anyone will admit to being in negative equity or having a house on finance. :lol:

I think many people would rather admit they were raped as a small child - than that they have 'lost money ' on the house they bought whilst telling you what a great idea it was.

And no - for some people at least - I am not joking. I honestly think the above is true. Not for all of course.

From the EA, not the vendor:

'Well, it might be a lot more than he paid for it (in 2005) but reading between the lines he's got debts to clear.'

"we've already had offers above the asking price"

House still for sale (at a lower asking price months later"

Who the offer"s" were from i dont know. The fairy godmother maybe.

Personally i gave up negotiating with estate agents, long ago. I'll issue a take it or leave it price. As a cash buyer id rather go the auction route and not have to deal with them at all, unfortunately not much up at auction atm it seems.

"we need at least £.... to afford the house we want to move into"

Edit to say typical Prisoner's dilemna situation

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prisoner%27s_dilemma

I had this from an estate agent when i was looking last year, i didnt like the place we were viewing and the agent had came across as a bit of a twit, so when he said "they need a minimum of X so they can get their dream place they have found" i said something along the lines of

"presumably where they want to move to is a lot better than this property, so seeing as my money will allow them to buy it why dont you just tell me where it is and ill save us all some hassle and view that instead"

He didnt seem to find it funny

A vendor once told me that his run-down flat in west London was priced at a premium because it was 3 miles away from the new Westfield shopping centre.

I was told that they couldn't drop it because it was the minimum needed to buy the next retirement house they wanted.

Propertybee informed me beforehand that they had religiously been dropping the price by £10k each month every month previously.. so I knew it was total ********.

Of course.. I was far too polite to tell them they were lying to my face.
