Stack The Odds Of Selling In Your Favour

Is Danny from here?

The reality is that you have to get real on price to sell at the moment. Those people that manage to sell are those that are prepared to accept that it's probably not worth what it was before the credit crunch. It's not an easy thing to do - I know because we had to! - but it pays off in the end.

A lot of vendors agree that their house isn't worth what it was in 2007.

Unfortunately for us, most of them think it's worth more :(

For a moment I thought Natalie might be (in a tongue in cheek kind of way).

Then I realised she was serious :lol:

House selling is still all about the twigs apparently..

Yep, and helped along by "busy" enthusiastic EAs.

I offer 95% of asking on a house 10 days ago. Pretty much priced at 2007 level, in other words, about £0.5 m. Cash no chain and can move tomorrow. It needed a small, single level extension to make it more livable, say another £50k altogether. Probably wouldn't have had a survey either. The house has been stood 300 years, so, it'll see me out.

Within 24 hours, the EA said my offer was rejected with no other comment or effort at "negotiating". I stupidly asked what the vendor would be happy with and the response "we cannot tell you that but we invite you to significantly increase your offer". I ignored him, had a second viewing and withdrew my offer. They can eff off

Found a better house in better nick in nicer village.
