Also as I have absolutely no intention of selling it less than 200k (unless the pound falls even further)

As I am now also looking to sell my property, I would be keen to know what other sellers are doing right now.
What are your long term intentions? What I mean is, if you have no intentions of dropping below that figure, what happens if the value drops even more? Will you just hang in there and wait for the market to pick up? If so, how long would you wait?
Do you think it will ever pick up???
I ask as I am not sure if trying to sell now is a good idea or is hanging in there a better idea, if you don’t really need to sell but just want to?
Would be great to hear what other sellers intentions are at the moment, cheers

This property is my holiday home. I did (foolishly) buy an investment property in 2004 based on the rapid development of the resort. I sold it (at any cost) in Feb 2009 as I knew what was coming. My wife is Spanish, her parents live nearby, her brother has an apartment in the same complex, there are many reasons for me to keep my apartment.

There are also many reasons why I want to sell. To move up the UK market without taking on a mortgage being the main one.

But I am not going to dispose of my holiday home near the bottom of the recession at any price. It has value to me and my wife and if it won’t sell for a reasonable price then I won’t sell it.

My situation is probably very different from other UK buyers that don’t have a strong link with their resort. I also have a very small mortgage on the apartment, so there is no financial pressure to sell.

I placed the advert to test the water and I’d say I need to fish in a different pond!!
