this post we ended up with nada.
As in the effin' signing son did not come back with an offer after the viewing. Just some vague message about how he's got the cash, is ready to move but is in no real rush, and how he's now gonna look through a huge list of potential other properties even though Chuppies' was his favourite by far and that he couldnt get over the size of the rooms available.
Blah, blah, blah.
So he's naffed off. Like all the others.
Leaving me and the Chuppies to lick our wounds, realise that we havent had a sniff of interest since that viewing, and that, yes, it was time to once again reduce the flat price and ultimately our house-moving budget.
Although there is one potential piece of tentative hopefulness amongst all the doom and gloom.
Whilst our budget is now plumbing the depths of despair (i.e. where all the derelict husks live) we have spotted (and subsequently viewed) an `Ok sort of thing' which could definitely tick the majority of our boxes (once you've sat down and thought about its potential). It's been sitting on the market since November last year and has gone through two price reductions since it first appeared. Plus it's chain free. Naturally as we have not received an offer on the Chuppies' flat we cant actually do anything about the `Ok sort of thing' but the Chuppies has put a call in to the estate agents today re. massively reducing the price of his flat (we're talking over £10K) as we've both got tremendeously itchy feet to get on and get our own place - even if it's an `Ok sort of thing' (but with the potential to be something rather nice).
Stay tuned for an update ...
