Just like buses, nothing for a while, and then two come along at once. In this case, offers on the Henley house. Yes, that's right, two offers in one day. And that's in addition to the asking price offer we received quite soon after the house went on the market and which is still on the table, except that the people who made that offer have yet to sell their own house. Unfortunately, neither of these two new offers were at the asking price: one was 25K below, the other 20K below. The lady who made the offer at 20K below can't go any higher, but the lady at 25K is going back for another look, so hopefully she'll increase her offer if she really wants the house. So, things are moving (!) in the right direction - people are interested in our house. The estate agent also said he had just been to value a house that he thinks will be perfect for us; perfect, except for the price that is. Which means we really do need to get the asking price, or as close to it as possible, for our house. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
