The return went well, although it's left me thinking the houses are closer (in terms of absolute value) than I did before. I went with my parents, to get a second opinion, and on the older house, they noticed a few things I hadn't the first time: a couple of tiles missing from the front, the roofs of houses of the same age across the street bowing a little - combined with the rather desperate need for complete re-painting and new carpets throughout, I think you'd have to spend the £15K difference to get it up to condition.

The comparison becomes a lot closer: one has extra space inside, the other has parking and a garage. Picking the better one is very personal, I suppose.

So which one do I prefer? Would I actually use the extra space? Silly question, of course, the stuff you have automatically expands to fill any storage space. But would I prefer the parking? Certainly, the parking is a great thing. And there's still plenty of storage space - a loft, a garage with space above it. And the killer feature: it's pretty much ready to move in.

Yeah, I think I'll go for that one. Now I just have to get a mortgage and lawyers sorted out.
