Would you take an offer 30K less than asking price?We have found our dream home. Unfortunately, it is priced 30K above our max budget. With the money we have to put down and the loan approval (we have it), we are still 30K below the asking price on the home. The seller started with a price of $360K 9 months ago. Since then, the seller has dropped the asking price to $319. Our top offer could only reach $289.Other than our budget, our primary concern is about resale. 1. The house is in a poor school district. In fact, it is possibly the worst in the state. However, I teach in the state's #1 district. Therefore, our kids can go to school there. Although the district does not affect us, it will affect future buyers. We worry, should we need to, we won't sell a family home for what the current sellers are asking.2. Although there are comps within 5 miles of the home, the immediate neighborhood is declining in appearance and upkeep - at least we feel it is for what the sellers are asking. An older house of comparable size across the street is selling for $235, and is sure to depreciate more before it sells.3. The neighborhood has no specials (pools, park, etc.) while the comp. neighborhoods do.We love the house. Would love to raise our two children there. We do not intend to make a disrespectful offer, but it's all we can do. The current owners are the original owners of the home - built in 1993.Would you take an offer 30K lower based on this information?March 05 2014 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
