Hi there. Oh good so glad we didn't annoy anyone! The market is so flat now, we're trying to think of anyway to find a house...
We did actually look at the overly ambitious priced house on your street and put in a reasonable, competitive offer....which was rejected in about 20 minutes. A shame for the vendors really because they're never going to shift their house at that price. Especially considering the house directly across from them, which had been completely refurbed top to bottom went for about 150K under what they're asking for. Oh well, perhaps they'll see sense soon but I'm not holding my breath....
I would absolutley be up for the challenge of the houses at auction on Lynton Road
, but we just wouldn't be able to secure financing quickly enough which is shame. If nothing us pops up we might just have to wait until the developers flip them and buy one then!
We actually had another call from one of your neighbours on Reverdy Street...he wasn't selling either but just wanted to let us know about the auctions...so sweet. Another great example of why we want to move there!
Would be lovely if you could keep an ear to the ground for any more houses on Alma Grove
. Thanks so much for your help!
