Default I really hope we get this one!

Recently everything has been going a bit haywire with our finances.
I only work weekends and do my research at uni on weekdays and my husband is still full time at uni (his final year thank God!)
So my dad has been helping us financially. He doesn't live in the UK and unfortunately recently the price of the pound has quadrupled in literally 1 month in comparison to our currency so we are only getting 1/4 of what we used to from my dad and unfortunately what I earn, despite it being a very decent salary for only working 2 days just isn't enough to pay for everything.
So we got out thinking caps on
My dad and mom had invested in a property for me when I was younger so we had to make a very quick sale on that and they sent me the money so I can get a house here in the UK to avoid paying rent.
Unfortunately, what would have been worth around 500k last year is now only 170k after the currency exchange
So I have been super duper busy house hunting over the past couple of months. Unfortunately neither hubby and I are entitled to a mortgage so that is literally all the money we have.
We wanted a calm and quiet family oriented area and a big enough house to fit all of our stuff in, but with our budget I couldn't find any suitable houses.
Then I came across this one :






Its a 4 bedroom with a decent size kitchen, living room and an o.k but small garden which needs a bit of work.
I also really don't like what the house looks like from the outside (I suppose I can fix that with a bit of TLC and gardening), but the interior is the best we have seen at our price range.
The estate agents have put a value of 170-195k which makes no sense to me! that is a 25k difference!

Why do they have such a large price difference in the range?

I put in an offer of 165k which was rejected and this morning I put in our maximum budget offer of 170k (which leaves no cash at the moment to improve anything, but we can save up later for that)

Just pray for us that our offer gets accepted!

It will be our first 'home' and it has enough space to accommodate us for the time being and it is in a nice area.

I just have a very strong feeling we won't get it and it makes me feel very sad especially because I have literally dreamt about moving in and decorating the place twice over the past week, then woken up and realised it wasn't real.

Thank you all! I have slept for 3 hours last night. I have been staring at the clock biting my nails :S I am supposed to get an answer today. I have been telling myself I will wait to 2pm and if I haven't heard back I will call them, but I don't know if I should in case I seem desperate (which I am LOL)
