Try not to be too harsh..
I have been approved of mortgage of 140k (including my deposit) I'm just almost 40 yrs, single.
This is really scraping the end of the barrel for Dublin obv
I could move to Arklow or Drogheda for example but worried about commute to D2
I want to buy because I'm currently paying cheap rent but the place is quite small in Dublin, just bigger than a bedsit.
Kinda confused if i should live in a "bad" area of dublin or just move out and commute..
seems to me the traffic is bad no matter where I live..
I've been a bit spoilt with a half hour walk to work the last 7 years...

Does anyone have recent first hand experience of the main agents fees for selling? I know I am looking at in the region of 1.5 - 2.5% but just looking for some real world examples. Thanks!

When an offer at asking price is not enough...

A house has been on the market about 3 weeks and has had 3 open viewings. The house is at the very top of our price range. We made an offer a week ago, at the asking price. No other offers have been received, but the EA tells us the seller wants a good chunk more than the asking.

Is this common? What's the point of the asking then?!? We aren't quite ready to walk away but by this time next week we will be. Don't suppose there's anything else we can do other than sit tight?

TIA
