We viewed a property today and both felt that it would be perfect for us, in a good location and a reasonable price.
We made an offer there and then for the full asking price and, as cash buyers with no mortgage needed, the agent said we were in a strong position. Ours was the first offer she had received and she said she would contact the vendor and get back to us later.
After several hours she called to say that there had since been four further full price offers today, with even more viewings booked for tomorrow.
The vendor has asked for each of us to submit our best and final offers which she will consider over the weekend and give her decision next week.
We have now submitted a higher offer and I can see more sleepless nights for me.
