Short sale - can still negotiate?There is a condo listed at $175k in Southern California and it is a short-sale. I submitted an offer at $180k because i knew there was another offer already in. I now got back a counter offer stating the Seller: declines to pay for home warranty, declines to pay for any work/renovation (needs painting, flooring is half finished, shower needs repair), and requesting Buyer to pay $3k in HOA Arrears and Assessments.My question is: because it is a short sale is there any other negotiation I can do, or am I at Seller's mercy because of the multiple offers?June 13 2012 - Mission Viejo00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
