Yet another house on the close has come up for sale. That makes three ‘competitors’ within sight; happily they are all priced considerably higher than ours and so act as added incentive. It’s funny the straws that get grasped when you really, really want to sell a house.
It looks as if we’re doing another heads-down weekend. We did no more yesterday than a little domestic shopping and today, though Graham had mentioned a desire to go garden centering, he has his ‘I shall not be moved’ head on, and shows no inclination to go out adventuring.
I’ve carried out an intensive study of the property market here in Bridgwater. We seem to be very well positioned in our (new) price bracket and, once someone comes a’looking with access to funds, we ought to be snapped up fast. Many of the properties coming on to the market in our target areas are sensibly priced and, just as important, vacant. When it does happen, it’ll happen fast.
It’s an odd position, being poised to move at the drop of a hat and yet not really expecting to do so.
