    Never be afraid of walking away; there is ALWAYS a better deal somewhere. I think 560 cash for 575 is more than generous. Call the EA on Friday and say the bid is now 555; that will scare the vendor!

    sounds fair to me, only 12k less.

    this is exactly my point, offering 560 when the asking price is only 575 is a fair offer , some people are just greedy.

    I went back with £175k offer and they still said no. We are going on holiday in a couple of weeks for a few weeks so going to wait until we get back then offer £175k again and point out the fact they could have been moving out by now if they accepted the original offer.

    My friend who is an EA said that it is a buyers market at the moment and you shouldn't be affraid to put in an offer that is really low and work your way up from that. If you have no chain then you add more value to your offer.
    down south it is a different matter , there are not enough properties to go round

    hence rip off asking prices , some sellers are really taking the wee wee though .

    it needs new kitchen ,bathroom,walls knocking out ,to open it up and plumbling sorting and some cosmetic bits and pieces. floors doors etc
    Property prices are chuffin' ridiculous. I bet that house cost under 250k 10 years ago. Which would have meant only 2.5k in stamp duty. Based on the asking price, they're now looking at £23,000 in stamp duty alone!

    They are idiots to knock that back, unless they really really need the extra cash or they have so much interest they think they can achieve the full asking price or more.

    When I put an offer in on that house that fell through it was £160 and the asking was originally £189,000.

    The house was on the market for 12 months, I'll just let it sit there for another 12 then then offer £150.
