Having lost her husband, the owner of this property neither had the money or energy to renovate her tired home. Another agent advised the owner that she should accept an offer of £190,000, much lower than the asking price they had originally recommended and, the owner reluctantly accepted.
Over five months and another reduced offer of £180,000 later, contracts had yet to be exchanged. Frustrated with the delay, the owner decided to call Romans Auctions for help. The gavel fell at a sale price of £214,000, £34,000 more than their previous offer.
