How low will a seller reduce their property?What percentage rate?we are in a 170000-180000 bracket for purchasing but still need to sell our home. Anyhow, it is suggested we get a 5000.00 SA as well..if a few homes are priced at 199,900 and 189,999 are they untouchable for us? We also have been told we can "buy a point" for the mortgage rate and then our offer can increase to 185,000 asking MAX. Is this offending to the seller? These are not foreclosures/short sales..they have been on the market for over 5 months however..June 22 2009 - West Norriton00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
