Well folks, for better or for worse, we've taken the plunge today and our UK house is on the market. As soon as it's sold, we're off to Formentera del Segura for good. 

Will we be reading this message in 6 months time, still without a buyer? Watch this space folks and keep your fingers crossed 'cos I'm sick of working!!!!

Irene & Alan

  Well good luck Irene and Alan,  hope all goes well I would think property in Windsor would sell even in the present climate, but I could be wrong.   but I do not  think so.   Well please keep us informed.    Pat

Thanks More and Pat. 

The agent tells us that property in Windsor is selling, but agents would tell us that wouldn't they!

They've already got people lined up to look at it. We're off to Spain for a couple of weeks starting 29th, and it would be a dream come true to get a call saying we've got a buyer, but I am a bit more of a realist (or perhaps a pessimist) and don't really believe this.

We shall see.

We've spent countless hours refitting the kitchen, bathrooms, painting, tiling, plumbing, de-cluttering, car-booting, hiding stuff in cupboards, under beds, in boxes in the garage until no hiding place is empty; the house looks the best it's ever looked. Isn't that strange that the last house we sold was pristine only when we were ready to sell?

You can bet your life I'll set off fireworks on EOS when we sell.

g'night ladies
Irene

The very best of luck with your sale, I certainly know how nail biting it is - waiting for that 1 call that lets you know your new life is about to start, keep on at your agent - now is the time to make them earn their commission.

Hopefully you'll be looking back in 6 months time - from Espana!

Good luck.
Our house has been on the market for 8 months and we are now considering letting it out for a year or so until people start buying again in this area.
I really hope your area is better.

We had our first viewing today. No feedback yet, but it's a good start!

Thanks to all of you for your good wishes and mine to you Laury. We've been told that we could rent for about £1,400 a month, but don't really want to do that because we've just done this blinkin house from top to bottom and couldn't face doing it again after a mucky tenant!


Anyway, we're in the hands of the gods (alias estate agents)!

Looks like we've been sussed! 

Just back from 10 days in Spain and loved every minute. We met yet more friendly people and really can't wait to get out there permanently.

We'll be catching up with the house agent tomorrow to see what we need to do to sell in UK!
