Ankle biter, my problem with ours is ankle bashing (he likes sticks)

You'd think so, but he gathers amused crowds especially when he drops the fucking things at my feet to be chucked  !!! (who then have to hop/skip out of the way)

My son was like this- until about a year or so ago, every time we went anywhere, there’d be an armful of sticks coming back/ which were then added to his “collection”. 

 

TLDR: My son is a mutt. 

 

It's actually quite scary how fucking strong dogs are, I need both hands just to pick up some of the one's he quite nonchalantly trots about with

little boys are a lot like dogs. they both need to be walked at least once a day and both come back carrying a stick

Stressed to death

Arranged a house viewing on a whim on Saturday as a lovely house came up locally. Was told they had 15 viewings booked in and it was likely to sell in days. Didn't think we stood a chance as our house want even up for sale

That night, a friend of a friend found out we may be selling and offered what we wanted on the spot. He's sold his house and is desperate to move to the estate as he has family round the corner. Suddenly we were in a good position so offered 5% above the asking price to try and clinch the house we viewed.

We get a call off the estate agent this morning to say we've offered the highest bid. But "to be fair to everyone else" they are asking all 15 viewers to offer their max final offers by 5pm tomorrow. Effectively using our bid to try and drive everyone else's offers up! 

Pack of bastards

I know that, doesn't make you feel any better being the one having your eyes taken out :lol:

 

You feel like it should be tough shit for those that bid too low in the first place

i missed out on a place that went to best and finals last autumn. it's the wild west like and the cunts user every trick in the book to make you pay over the odds. you can file estate agents under cunts alongside bankers - and journalists, obvs.

They won't tell the 15, how much your top bid was, they'll just say to each "there was a higher bid than theirs, do you want to make a higher offer", you could still be highest even staying at what you have bid already (maybe not, as well like)

The estate agents responsibility is to the vendor, not the buyer, not to mention thry take a cut out of the sale price. Good luck anyway, moving house is a fucking nightmare.

What's the latest? Shouldn't you have heard by now? And if you've heard and your first thought wasn't to immediately update us, then I don't know what to say to you.

They wanted final offers by 5pm tonight. I expect we will hear tomorrow. We bottled it in the end and offered £25k above the asking price. If it goes for more than that then they can have it

When I sold my last place, someone swooped in at the last minute and outbid the first couple that had offered. 

 

So we did the full and final offer thing and the first couple didn't budge a penny and the couple that already had the highest bid stuck another £7k on their offer, successfully outbidding themselves and becoming the proud owners. :lol:

 

For what it's worth, I reckon you've done the right thing. If you're in love with the place, this won't seem that big a deal years down the line.

I hate the phrase, but if this is your "forever" house a few grand overpaid won't make a diference, just a bit more on your mortgage payment each month. My mistake has been to not stretch myself enough to get the house I wanted, meaning i ended up moving house 3 times and ultimately  spending probably a 6 figure sum more than i needed to if id just got it right first time, plus a large dollop of ball ache on top.

Could always do what we did, buy your missus’ dream home for about 20 grand over your top budget, then spend 60 grand on an extension anyway..

Be worth it when it’s done like but I deal with builders all day at work and now all day at home.
