Our house went on the market exactly a week ago today and we were a little bit nervous about what interest and reaction we would get. As you know we had over 11 viewings on the Monday night and a further 6 on Tuesday and had another 20 lined up for the rest of the week. But Monday night we had received 6 offers 3 for asking price the rest over the asking price and on Tuesday all the interested parties were asked to have their final and best offers in to the estate agent by 5pm. On Wednesday morning we accepted an offer for 6% over the asking price, OMG we never expected that in fact when kev and i first talked about selling we thought we may get £380,000,00 max.

We have to thank our amazing estate agents, they got us and our house, took fab photos and gave it a wonderful right up. If anyone is thinking of selling a property in South London we can highly recommend Wooster and Stock

So now its off to France next weekend to look for our new house.

Ill let you know how we get on.

Exciting and scary day

Yesterday was a very exciting but scary day for us, as our London home for the last 5 years went on the market.

We have been deliberating over which estate agents to put it on with for ages, and finally decided to go with Wooster and Stock. A few things convinced us that they were the right one to go with, firstly they greet you like human beings and not a product on a conveyer belt, secondly their offices are stunning full of reclaimed furniture and unusual objects, just like our home. We love their new office in Sydenham which is a converted pub. They came to us last Thursday to take photos, do the energy rating and generally have a chat about the house and us, and I have to say I was extremely impressed, they were just ordinary people who all seem to love heir jobs and took a real interest in our house and us.
We love the way Paul the photographer has managed to capture the Essenes of the house on camera and love, love, love his quirky magazine style editorial.

So far so good now all they have to do is sell it for us, fingers crossed.
