Waiting is now the order of the day.
We wait to see if Miss Catana will be ours as the seller considers our offer. Our original offer has not been well received so the seller has gone to consider, and so we wait.
Patrick has promised to get back to us by end of today and time will tell if we can come to an agreement on price.
No seller is happy with negotiated offers (we understand better than most!) and no doubt our seller is not happy as he considers our offer. However as Patrick so eloquently put it, the market dictates the price and we currently are the market. It still seems a long way off, step by step is the nature of purchasing a big item.
The surveyor is ready, Handy Patrick is in France and we are waiting with a more wiggle room in our kitty. Perfect or so we hope…
PS whilst we wait we have pulled down an internal block wall and chimney, and created chaos in our living arrangements. Dirt, dust and disorder always make waiting more fun don’t you think? This was always the intention with the rental property we own and have moved into so no time like the present.
