We saw a property advertised on the Express website for £189950, then reduced to £179950, with the statement 'reduced by £50000'. We phoned Express and asked about room sizes etc, but were told that they do not give this information. Eventually we received an email with all the details we had requested. We asked if the vendor would accept the asking price and were told that he wouldn't. We then asked if he would accept an offer of around £200000. The lady who was dealing with our query then informed us that the vendor was looking for as near to £250000 as possible, therefore would not consider our offer. We are cash buyers and able to proceed immediately. We have not viewed the property - what's the point when it's so far in excess of our budget. Also after our 'phone calls to Express we felt uncomfortable about the professional ethics and integrity of this company.
