With the general house market dropping and our buyers in Rakaia fading out we’ve dropped our price by $10,000 and have already scored a new offer. We’ll still be walking away with more than we need to finish the house and maybe enough to build the stables too so that’s OK. Anyway this new offer is conditional on finance so could still fall through but at least its something.
This was a family that we showed through ourselves last week – they drove by and we’re peering up the drive so we figure we might as well show them through. There’s been a couple like that and in fact we’ve seen at least as much interest through the Christmas break as before it. We think that its a myth that nothing happens then – after all that’s when people have time to go looking.
Anyway – fingers crossed.
