We liked a property that was over our budget but decided that it was worth it because we were desperate to move and it was newly renovated, and a great location. LDB said that it had been on the market earlier for a higher price but lowered it recently. When we put in an offer we asked to reduce the asking price by 25 and they advised us that we would be denied (rather than just putting it in and letting it be rejected). We believed them. A couple of weeks later we saw our property being advertised for 35 pounds less on-line and we could have easily asked for 10 or 15 pounds less than that.
To make matters worse, we are now experiencing problems with the appliances in the place because they were not checked out. The wiring is faulty and we have no oven, and probably will not have one in the near future.
Although I found the team members to be pleasant it seems now that they were just in it for a quick buck. Not sure if we should recommend LDB or go with them for the next round of hunts.
