Our house is sale agreed after only 5 days on the market having had 6 bidders. All went so well. Sold to a cash buyer who is happy to wait until we find something suitable. A perfect situation for us you’d think.
Except we are finding it difficult to find a suitable property. We want to future proof by moving to a bungalow. Or a house with a bathroom/bedroom downstairs as well as bedroom/s and shower room upstairs so we can migrate downstairs should the need arise. Such a property is like hen’s teeth. Barely a bungalow to be found.
We really want to stay in our little market town but have extended our search area by 10 miles still without success. I think there will not be many new properties come onto the market until after Christmas.
Those we have seen need too much done to them to make them suitable. We’re willing to do a certain amount of work such as changing a bathroom to a shower room but not to the extent of knocking down walls/repointing brickwork.
Today we viewed 4 properties at the 10 mile radius limit without success. I came home drained and emotionally exhausted. Our own home is perfect for us except it doesn’t have the option for downstairs living. Future proofing seemed such a good idea.
Has anyone ever felt that it was all just too much. We’ve only been searching for two weeks but have covered every property in the area that is remotely suitable without success.
I didn’t realise how stressful this part was going to be. To be waiting in hope that we find something. I know that any day ‘the one’ could appear. But can my nerves take the strain.
Anyone else find this part difficult?
