Its in the East Midlands, and I've bought it :o:blink:

I've got a 20% reduction on the original asking price .... from late November last year (2005).

Could have waited for more, but have other considerations such as schooling etc and not wanting to screw the kids arund more than need be, all being well will have completed in a couple of weeks or so.

Also the property fits our needs exactly, I just hope others that have waited for so long also get what they want, If I was single/no kids I'd be waiting and till late 2007 I think :ph34r::ph34r:

And whatever happens to rates I'll be fine due to my financial position ........ but I'v still saved 130K over the next 25 years :D

Besides that when i leave I'm planning to be wearing my wooden overcoat ... yep I merelywant the property to LIVE in ..how bizarre :rolleyes:

You crazy man.

You need to pop down to your local MFI, and buy some of that excellent laminate and magnolia paint.

Slap on a couple of layers (the laminate goes on the floor).The magnolia paint will make the property unique!

You could make a fortune.

Well whatever you do, all the best with the new place.

It just goes to show!

I sold a place in Loughborough in Nov '04 for about 3% less than the asking price (which was at the lower end of the range it was valued at), but far above what I paid for it. If the lady buying it had haggled a bit, I would have gone lower, probably up to 10% lower. But she didn't.
