As the boat we ‘had our eye on’ has now been sold (Grrr) we spent the weekend based at my sister’s in Rushden and checked out some of the local brokers. We saw a couple of ‘possibles’ and one we quite liked, so that was good. Still need to sell our house though and saw another estate agent today who thinks a good way to sell our house is to knock £12,000 off the price.
Yeah right… I could give it away too. To accept a reduction for a cash offer is one thing, but to move the goalposts that far would leave no room to negotiate.
He also has a narrowboat on his books which we viewed today, but thought that was overpriced too!
