Is it a buyers or sellers market near Winter Haven Florida?

looking to buy a house and wanted negotiating feedback. Listing was 170,000 and  I offered 153,000 and seller pays half the closing costs.

The counter was 158 and 2k on closing.

Whats a respectful thing to do?

It really depends on your financing and what the seller wants to net from the sale.  If you are doing more conservative financing and you are concerned about the appraisal - you may want to counter back a little lower say split the difference.  Now it is leaning towards a sellers market in Florida so there is a chance another offer could come in and get the deal.  However, the fact that they took such a lower amount and are giving 2K in closing - you may have a little negotiation room.

It's a big time seller's market all over Central Florida right now. I would take the counter offer if I were you. There are multiple offers on almost everything right now and things are selling for more than listed price in many cases. Best of luck.
