Making an offerOkay, so my husband and I are looking at a home in a small rural area, the home is an older home built in 1900, the home is a Freddy Mac home, The home was listed in July at 49,999 its now August and they have dropped it 10k, its 39,999 the home does need repairs, we are wanting to make an offer, the real estate agent keeps pushing that we offer 35k which would be our max out price because we are paying cash, personally I wanted to offer 30-31k so I could give them a counter offer on anything they may throw back at us, I would be a first time home buyer and I'm unsure on what to offer. I would like to know if 31k is a good offer, the home is just sitting vacant in a tiny town and the bank isn't making money off of it plus every 60 days they are dropping the price and paying for an appraisal August 09 2014 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
