“Liz from Midlothian asks about her house sale”

February 06, 2017

I am in the process of downsizing. At the moment I have one offer and one note of interest for my house. I am so stressed and I wondered if you could see a successful outcome for me..?

Hi Liz, Buying and selling a house is very stressful and it's good to hear you have someone helping you as this may also help ease your stress. Having a professional working on your behalf and giving you advice will help you understand your situation and options. Selling property is also a lengthy process and as a Gemini you can get nervous and restless when a situation seems to be standing still. You just want it all to be over, which is understandable but I want to say: be patient. My feeling is you should have contingency plans in place in case it doesn't go as expected. Talk to your Estate Agent who can help guide you through the questions, concerns and decisions you have to make. You can anticipate positive movement in the summer when June, July and August are likely to see you making a move. Until then, do your best to stay calm and hopeful.
