Unreasonable worrying about home selling

We're on a deadline. Not a _specific_ deadline, but we've basically said "We're buying your house, as soon as our flat sells." And nobody expects it to happen in the first week, but they do expect it to happen in a reasonable amount of time.

I say "Nobody expected it to happen in the first week", but 5 people saw it last weekend and four of them were positive about it. One of them was really really positive about it. To the point of asking whether we were up for them making an offer (to which I said "of course").

And yet there have been no offers. And no notes of interest. And while I didn't expect it to sell instantly, I now have no idea what to expect. Because if people can be that visibly excited while looking at the flat, and not actually decide they want it, then I have no idea how excited someone actually needs to be to go for it.

I don't think we've priced it out of the market. It looks reasonably similar to others in its price bracket. I think we're just going to have to wait for things to happen.

But I do wish it didn't lead to me waking up at 6am stressing about it.
