I've Bought With A Last-minute Change Of House...

Recommended Posts

Finally bought in the Southampton area at 90% of asking price. Interesting thing though is the estate agent rang me to offer a house at £180k that he'd refused to accept £184 on the week before. Tried to hammer the seller down to £177k from £200k but they weren't having it. It's a 3 bed detached in a really nice area of Hampshire so i'm pleased with it even though i've had to talk myself into it. There's room to put an extension on giving a 4th bedroom, en-suite plus big kitchen below.

All this means that I won't need to move for pretty much ever so I can sit and watch the crash unfurl without too much angst. For those trying to buy a crappy 2-bed terrace under pressure from partners just to get on the downward ladder i'd say 'DON'T DO IT'***.

RFD,

I know what you mean. Buying now has left me feeling how I would expect to feel if someone forced me to stop being a United fan after 30 years and made me support Liverpool.

Actually thats complete ********. I'd rather live in a cardboard box than support Liverpool so it's a poor analogy.
