I've got a Happy Dance of a different kind today - we've accepted an offer on the house! The people who are buying it made us an offer at the weekend, but it was ludicrously low. Then they asked what we would accept so we told them, and they still offered substantially less. After this went back and forth a few times, our estate agent basically told them to stop wasting time - we'd said what we would accept so either make a sensible offer or walk away. I thought they'd walked because we didn't hear anything more for a couple of days, but this afternoon the agent rang to say they'd offered what we'd said we would accept, so accept we did!!! Actually, now we have a buyer I feel a bit funny about moving - it suddenly seems very real.
