We returned from holiday to two offers on our house. One buyer then leapfrogged the other taking us to well within 5% of the asking price. With no further bidding we decided to accept the offer. However, the following day the other buyer came back with a higher offer again. Just a couple of thousand over but they also had the advantage of being a cash buyer. This is our first time selling and we were at a bit of a loss what to do. Asking around at work and a quick poll on Twitter seemed to suggest we should simply go for the highest offer. In the end though we did the honourable thing and stuck with the offer we had already accepted. Hopefully the good will this generated will help smooth the rest of the process. Now we just need to find somewhere to move to!
