House Sold – Again

Well, in the last few days we have had three offers on the house from three different people and we have accepted the offer that was both the highest and appears to be the least risqué.

The only potential risk is that the couple buying our house are in a chain, still after the girl who couldn’t get a mortgage and the couple who messed us around for weeks before announcing that they were having marital issues this one should hopefully be the one that goes all the way through.

The person buying our buyers house (stick with me) is a first time buyer, the Halifax have confirmed with our buyers estate agent that their buyer has a mortgage in place and everything appears to have been confirmed OK

Let’s hope this is third time lucky for us.

I think it’s unlikely that we will be able to get everything sorted before we leave on the 24th of November but it would be really great if everything is good to go before we depart.

DIY Frenzy

It’s strange that we don’t feel particulalrly excited, but we’ve been through this so many times now it’s pretty difficult to get that excited when we’ve been through the emotional lows when previous offers have fallen through.

We also popped into the Halifax on Saturday to give two weeks notice to terminate our contract.

We told them we will be going elsewhere unless of course we accept an offer within this two week period.

Looked like the threat brought with it some added luck. Lets just hope it continues.
