Assistance Required from the Housing Terrorists (aka Doomers)

This lovely house recently came on the market in Alpine @ $1.2 million, but I can't afford it at the present price.  If the price was reduced by about $250,000, I could probabaly afford it.  So how can I get the price down?  Since you doomers seem to take joy in economic crises, I was wondeirng if you can provide me with some tips.  Thanks in advance!

 

ALPINE – $1,195,000

    Aren't you being a bit hypocritical trying to victimize some poor seller?

    Like I said, the doomers are housing terrorists.  You don't need to kill people to be classified as a terrorist.  A terrorist spreads fear through violence and/or propaganda.

    Why don't you offer a trade for your Cliffside Park place? Then, after they kick you out, you can offer $900k, which will seem like a tremendously improved offer.  8)

    You know what, I'm not even a cheerleader, and I'm kinda tired of this Cheertard.  It's pretty offensive to people that have down syndrome.

    Just go talk to the owners in person.  I'm sure your winning personality coupled with your dazzling intellect will convince them to lower the price.  If that doesn't work, just do what you always do - whine and insult them 'till they cave in.

    "So how can I get the price down? "

     

    Wait a year and the asking price will probably be reduced to below 1M.  By then, your 250K off offer won't even be considered a lowball.

    alpine,

     

    I'm not going to do the legwork for you. Look for comps, adjust them, fudge the value of land and age difference until you come to the price you want to pay. You're only trying to cut 20%. Unless the asking price is aggressive (low), you should be able to substantiate your 950k offer.

     

    A year ago I made an Excel spreadsheet for a property listed at 1.4mm. According to my calculations it was worth 900k, 950k at best. After a few counter-offers I was at 1mm, still rejected. It sold 6 months later for $1,100,000.

     

    I was never able to let the seller see my Excel "CMA", the realtor didn't want to. (I worked with the seller's agent who was pretty desperate after 12 months on the market.)

     

    Good luck,

     

    -Peter

    It's funny how twisted this guy is. The REAL "housing terrorists" are the ones who borrowed $500,000 and couldn't afford to pay it back, racked up their credit card debt, and eventually got forclosed because they couldn't afford the $3,000/month mortgage when their ARM reset. Shocker. All the while, the people, the REAL "realists", who refused to pay through the nose for a tiny house, and even more so, KNEW they couldn't afford a half million dollar house, were all locked out. Now that the shoe is finally on the other foot, he turns into the biggest crybaby there is and reaches hard for any possible tiny little sign of good news in the real estate market. Pathetic.

     

    I guess Alpine likes paying rediculous amounts of money for his property taxes, since he likes overinflated prices. Fool.
