Put An Offer In


Recommended Posts

just put an offer in on a 5 bed in woking are we nuts in the current climate ?

No, of course not. Buying a house now at the start of a credit crunch, at what looks like the top of the market is obviously negated by the fact that properdee only ever goes up. I'm sure that everyone on a website called housepricecrash.co.uk will agree.

how long do you think this credit crunch is going to last for?

the banks need each other- it only takes a couple of banks to do business with each other and it'll be back to normal

GB could take IR down which could start another boom- lets face it the NR fiasco could have gone a lot better for the bears

Droll troll.

Actually, I think making offers on this kind of property is a great idea. Some have suggested at half asking price - but I think they are being overly generous.

I hereby provisionally offer £250 plus the price of 5 economy class airline tickets to any destination the owners choose (one per bedroom). I will leave it up to the vendors to pick somewhere that doesn't (yet) have extradition treaties for debtors and tax evasion. I will reimburse the cost of two full-surveys (to be completed by surveyors of my choosing - a HIP is *not* sufficient) subject to there being no substantial structural problems with the property. I am in a position to complete quickly, if necessary, I've a friend who does conveyancing on speed dial.

It would make a nice Xmas present for my sister (who rents near there) don't you think?

carer ? who knows paying cash

Why do I get the impression that you are not looking for advice? Rather bragging that you can afford to buy a £600K house for cash, it takes all sorts.... :rolleyes:.

lol im guessing the only plums and fools are the ones who wished they had bought property a few years back :lol:

hey i said i put an offer in offers can be withdrawn too :P it`s a nice house though i would prefer to lose some cash than pay a landlord rent :rolleyes:

If you continue to post like a troll, you will be treated like one <_<.

what price bracket are we talking about for a 5 bed in woking? if you dont mind me asking

When I last visited the area around Wokingham, I looked at houses... it is pleasant.

Not far from Wokingham (in a cheaper area) my sisters' landlords' house is 5 bed; has no garage... but parking for half a dozen cars... built in brick with little attention to detail... a functional rather than decadent house.

I understand, on the grapevine, that it was valued at about £750K for mortgage purposes.

The surroundings are OK - but you can hear the dual-carriageway... the local pub is awful - and I couldn't find a local restaurant.

Wokingham proper sells at a premium.
