Right. Does anyone want to buy a house?Seriously.
I hope the chickens don't mind being uprooted.
Are the shrews included in the asking price or are you taking them with you? Or have they all been hunted down?Watch out for cat-hating prospective neighbours - you been there already!
Yes! Me!Can't afford it; havent even got one to sell first, but hell yeah.You OK?
Bravo to you, darlin'...if you can do better, why not do better?I wish I could afford to get a house in Wales. That one looks as though it would do nicely.xx
Oh! You mean seriously seriously!Good luck!
So are you upping sticks, then? Does this mean plans are afoot? Am all agog.
Interesting that this is happening when someone is in Australia. Hmmm. (or do I have my dates wrong?)Here in the States, doing a flip like this would open you up to risk of losing money (bankers' fees not recouped, etc. ) is that not the case in the UK?
Imperatrix - He's not off until tomorrow morning - we have spent a considerable amount of time over the weekend picking the bones out of this and working out what we want.Yes, we'll probably lose some money. Not cash-money; but equity-money. There will be more fees etc.. We are having a go at selling it ourselves via My Boyfriend The Interweb, to save on estage agent's fees. There is something strangely adrenalin-inducing about listing YOUR HOUSE on eBay.Cheryl - kind of okay. Embarassed, mainly. It's quite a large cock-up to have made.
It looks lovely, but would be a rather long commute for me.Have you thought about looking at what else is available -- just in case one of your ebay buyers snaps the current one up?
I'm sorry to hear this move hasn't been quite right but hope the next one is - I think you are moving (sic) in the right direction!
if you'd have asked in a couple of years...we've just had our offer accepted on a house in the country - garden big enough for the veg and possibly a few chickens. Phase one in our 10 year plan to get of the train.
