Moving house – Part III

I’ve just closed the sale of my current house for an incredible £123,500. That’s £8,500 above the asking price. At several points I thought the bidding was over, then a surprise bidder would turn up and yank the price even higher.

Just shy of three years ago, I bought this house for £70,000, and I’m now selling it for £53,500 more than that! Hard to believe this kind of thing can happen in the property market.

I’ve now made an appointment to set up a mortgage. Everything’s running smoothly so far.
