#2 in line -are there tricks to get to #1?The hubs and I really want a house and a developer got their offer in before ours. The owners claim to want a family that will not split up the lot, which we won't. (Developer will.) We're in line #2 at asking price behind the developers. Are there any tricks or tips that could help us get this home? Our realtor is on vacation and his stand-in is just not as perfect as he is, although they are both great.
