So.... On Saturday my wife was depressed because she wants a house. We talked about it for a bit and she starts looking on the internet. She sees this house in Dover and shows me, I see potential so she tries to ring the EA on Sunday, closed. We drive out there anyway to have a look. She liked it, I didn't as it had a weird shaped living room, no room for a 42" tv. Brilliant view of Dover castle though. Turns out it was sold anyway and the EA was just too lazy to amend the details.
Monday she rings EA's and books loads of viewings then we go to see a mortgage broker, then off to stalk the houses she had viewings on.
Tuesday we view 2 houses, first one was a no hoper. Second one was ok. Needs a bit of work, but nothing major. Wife has a bit of a haggle.
This morning she makes a formal offer and seller accepts.
Difficult to buy a house these days? Yeah right. PMSL. Now the 'fun' begins....
