We made an offer of 291,000 plus 3% sellers assist. Also the basement is currently being updated we requested in the bid that whatever the already purchased items like doors, trim etc be included as part of the sale. The verbal counter offer from the seller is 374,000. Consequently, we received a written counter-offer of 330,000 and the seller would complete the work in the basement.<br \><br \>14 replies Tue, 29 Jan 2013 16:03:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-a-seller-refuse-a-full-offer-bid-and-take-the-house-off-the-market/476382/ 2013-01-29T16:03:00Z Speaking of ' Bad Agents'...............? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Speaking-of-%27-Bad-Agents%27/437646/ What options does a buyer; with or without any particular ' buyers-agent ', have, when a property they're MORE than interested in, is listed with an agent(cy), where there's a DEFINITE conflict of interest, both personal and proffessional?<br \><br \>27 replies Tue, 03 Apr 2012 07:26:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Speaking-of-%27-Bad-Agents%27/437646/ 2012-04-03T07:26:00Z Kiss my contingency bye bye! http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Kiss-my-contingency-bye-bye/436764/ Remember me? Pouty Patty boo hooin 'bout having a home-sale-contingency; cast out into the cold; rejected by all my friends, family, and even my dog? Chants of " you're not worthy, oh lowly, wanna-be, home-buyer!" rang out in the night, as I ran home....(to that one I was supposed to sell, ya know?) Poor little rejected house! &nbsp;Then like a miracle, the Vets Administration Man, appears out of nowhere, and says; " Don't despair, your Veteran still has entitlement coming, so you're more than eligible for the loan you need, and you won't have to sell your home at all, if you don't want to! " &nbsp;All of a sudden, a huge change came over the sellers, and their agent; the apologies were flowing, and it was almost pathetic how nice everyone was to us; We would'ave been their only offer of 5-6yrs on the market. We decided that we'd stay in our humble little home after all, and said " Thanx anyway!"<br \><br \>0 replies Tue, 27 Mar 2012 03:12:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Kiss-my-contingency-bye-bye/436764/ 2012-03-27T03:12:00Z " Deal-breaker-listing-agents " Now what?? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Deal-breaker-listing-agents-Now-what/434561/ A few yrs ago, my husband and I found our ' dream home', and the sellers were looking for a buyer that could love it like they did. But..before anything was on paper, an emergency situation forced them to take their house off the mkt. We were very disapointed, but life goes on. Just recently, I saw their house back on the mkt, and with a OMG listing agent!! My opinion is based on my own personal experience with this agent, and I'm not alone,when I say: If she's not under investigation by now, she should be,as she's had numerous complaints filed against her! The sellers are elderly types, so I wouldn't expect them to know much else, other than she's local and works for a very nice broker. I need to know if it's 'OK' for us to bypass this agent, at least until it comes to the paperwork and such? I'm sure our ' Deal-breaker-agent' has thrown the fear of God into the sellers about these kinds of things, cuz she's known for that, as well. Bottom line: we REFUSE to deal with her, until we absolutely have to, and in this case, ONLY because this is our dream house.<br \><br \>7 replies Fri, 09 Mar 2012 17:00:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Deal-breaker-listing-agents-Now-what/434561/ 2012-03-09T17:00:00Z How do I find comparables in Dubois? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-find-comparables-in-Dubois/423106/ 2 replies Wed, 16 Nov 2011 19:08:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-do-I-find-comparables-in-Dubois/423106/ 2011-11-16T19:08:00Z I am thinking of purchasing a home in Victorville, CA.
