So I got a call from the estate agent today apparently the seller has now rejected my offer of the asking price and now wants another £35k !! Greedy [email protected] can forget it that’s my garage budget.
The search for a new garage continues.


Sorry to hear that mate.

I've had that happen to me, the estate agent rang back after a few weeks and asked whether or not my offer still stood. How long has the house been on the market for?

It transpires that another agent knocked on their door and told them that if it sold that quick (within a week) then it must be too cheap. So they have put it on with him at more money.

The original agent said the only interested parties were us and another couple. It's a small village so we know the other couple and they are no longer interested. So I expect they will come around in a few weeks. I have told the agent if this happens I will lower my offer by £10k. We have 2 small kids so there is no way we want to move this side of Christmas and I hear there is another property coming to the market after Christmas with an even bigger back garden.

Fingers crossed.

It sometimes works out for the best. 

 

You could ask the vendor to pay your conveyancing and survey fees, refundable on completion, since they'll have history of mucking about. You might need too much nerve if you also offer 10k less though.

I don’t trust that the guy will go through with the sale now so I am hoping another house comes up and I don’t have to deal with him again.

Fingers crossed everything pans out okay. Nothing worse than being messed around when buying and selling a house.

Yes,

 

You can bet when you've completed something better will come on the market too! You'd have to be an estate agent to actually enjoy the process.

Yeah it will be ok in the end. Just a bit of a pain not knowing if I should pack up the garage or carry on welding.
