Price comps? I am debating between 2 houses and need to know whats the better deal!I have submitted an offer on a foreclosure and they have responded very quickly but the bank countered with only $5k less than listing price. It is for slae for $169,900 and I offered $155,000 and they countered $165000. I need to know if I am getting a good deal. If I counter can they reject it alltogether? Or should I play it safe and accept and not risk losing the whole sale alltogether? I initially offered a $5k earnest deposit so after I raise my offer now can I also change what I will give them as the deposit when it comes time to deposit it? I do not have a buyers agent just a lawyer so how do I pull out comps in the area and analyze if i am getting a good deal?? How long do I usually have to respond? I still have a pending offer on an approved short sale and have yet to hear back from them but dont want to lose the house in the meantime. Any help would be appreciated!September 22 2011 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
