    We have got our house and our Pizza & Roast Dinner business on the market and we have only had ridiculous offers on the business and one offer on our house which we didn’t proceed with.

    Any ideas as to how we can move forward with the sale of these would be gratefully received. We live and work in Stratford but need to move somewhere warmer due to my husbands health.

    Your statistics don’t give me much confidence to be honest as our house has been on the market since May 2011.
