Sealed Bids

It’s 13.45. I’m in London and Deborah is in Ilkley.I have just spent an hour talking to Deborah on the phone trying do decide how much we are going to offer for the house in Ilkley. There are a number of people all offering around the asking price and so the deal is that we all submit our best offers in sealed envelopes by 5pm this evening. The vendor will then make a choice. We have done some property price searches and established that we are offering a little over the odds for the house, but let’s see.  Compared to London prices you get so much more.

I’ll let you know at 5.30 or so whether we are successful, and if so post a picture.
