We went for a second viewing on a house last night which was listed as 'offers in excess' of X. Really liked it (even more than the first viewing) and went straight in at X but the seller didn't want to take it off the market as he wanted to allow those that are already booked in the opportunity to see the property (and presumably make a higher offer).
Obviously his prerogative and if he thinks he can get more than fair play, but should I have been more insistent that my offer was on the condition that it would be taken off the market?
I don't think you can ever feel like you've done the right thing when looking to buy a house.
Don't beat your self up and if this one doesn't go through, then it wasn't meant to be.
