Quick house update

So we finally heard something yesterday (sorry for just getting this here now). They counter-offered our offer. It was listed at 145,000; we offered 123,000, they counter-offered at 135,900. So of course I counter-offered their counter-offer :D. I countered with 128,000 today. So hopefully we hear next week if they accept that or not. If they don't we will probably move on, since as much as we like the house, I'm not willing to pay 135,900 for it.

Hopefully they will take it. Was there any reason they were asking $20,000 more than what you were willing to pay for it?

WOW! I wish there were houses for $145,000 here in CA! That is an awesome deal! (at least here in CA)

Either way i hope you get what you are looking for!

They will be soon. Cali is dropping and fast. Stockton right now has the highest bank owned property's in all the nation. You can get a 5 bedroom for 190,000. My DH and I are looking like crazy, even if it means living in Stockton and commuting to the Bay Area.

Probably because it sold 2 yrs ago for 212,000 and they are worried about being out a ton of money. But it doesn't have central air, and while we can live without it, we don't have to, since I can pay 135,000 for a house that does have it. We just happen to really like this house.

I really hope you get it! I know how nerve wracking it can be waiting for something to happen. I hate the waiting game, I am not very patient, can you tell? lol Smile KUP!

Oh, I hope it all works out. I would want central air as well, so that is a big factor and I understand why you counter offer again.
