  • If your fixed price is very competitive then that could work, but most people like to haggle. You could go on the market at what looks like a low price with 'offers over.' A lower price on paper could get more people through the door, and then it is down to negotiation.

  • Interesting question and one we are asked all the time by our Scottish sellers. Offers over is virtually dead in Scotland now and we have two views on o/o versus o/a. 1) If it as a property aimed at the 1st time market. We generally advise our clients to go fixed price. 1st time buyers tells us on a regular basis that they look for Fixed Prices 1st. 2) For most other propreties offers around. This can mean over or under the asking price. But it also shows you can be a bit flexible which may encourage a quicker sale. No right or wrong thing to do in our books.

  • It's a good question, we've been asked this many times. We decided to create a video because it's quite an in depth subject. I've linked it below if you would like to watch the whole thing but ultimately I think it depends on the property and the market conditions locally.
