Should I accept a low offer or counter?We placed our home on the market just 2 weeks ago. We live in an area where it usually takes about 6 months or more to sell a home but the prices are still raising and there are literally NO foreclosures.(Thanks to a rental housing shortage by our military base. So if you cannot sell you can rent and makes hundreds per month.) We just purchased our home 3 years ago so we have not paid much off. That left us with only $5000 wiggle room to negotiate with after all fees are paid to our realtor, attorneys, etc when we chose our listing price. So 2 weeks after listing we got an offer to where we walk away paying about $1000 at closing. We have already put about $10,000 into the house that we will lose. We have redone it and priced it to sell. Should we just accept the offer and pay just a small $1000 more to get out of a $180k loan? Or should we counter just a few thousand dollars more and risk losing the contract so that we at least recoop and walk away with something?
