Sellers really are delusional.I put in an offer Monday morning on what would've been my first house purchase. Yes, I made a low offer. I get that might not be the best way to win over a seller, but hey, its my money we're talking about here. My offer, which was justifiable based on comps and condition issues (at least I believe it was), was 89% of the seller's list price ($174,500). I also threw in there that I wanted them to pay $3000 of the closing. It takes them four days to come back with a counter. Their counter is $173,000 with the $3000 closing assistance. Seriously. They want to sell their house for $170,000 when (I believe) its value is closer to $155,000. Who even counters with $1500 off? What is that??? I don't think they realize what's going on in the world. We countered their counter but I don't expect this deal to get done. I hope they have fun paying that heating bill all winter, cause god only knows when they'll have a serious offer again.November 20 2008 - US22YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
