After only two weeks on the market an offer was made on our Bathurst house. We had valued the house at 249,000 which was quite a bit less than it was worth a few months ago but more than most Real Estate agents had valued it at. the offer came in only just under the asking price so we accepted. The buyers want a quick settlement and as the house is empty that suits us fine.
Unfortunately the worlds financial situation has affected Australia and the dollar has dived so the house did not sell at the price we thought, but it did sell very quickly, and things are going up in price so the initial idea of being able to renovate within the selling price of Bathurst is unlikely. Still we will try our best.
