I spoke with the agent yesterday about the seller’s willingness to lower his asking price. He previously received an offer bewteen $105,000 – $110,000 and turned it down. That let me know that there was room–but not much room– to negotiate the asking price. Naturally, I was astonished when I received an email alert* that the price had been lowered on one of my saved properties. Low and behold, it was the very property I have been daydreaming about for the past couple of days. The seller lowered the price from $122,500 to $111,900. WOW!
I have been lining my ducks in a row to prepare to make an offer, should we be so compelled. I’m a little nervous about the fact that we haven’t actually seen the inside, but from the pictures online, it looks move-in ready… and boy are we ready! Patrick wonders why it hasn’t sold yet; I think perhaps its becuase the right buyers haven’t come along. This house was meant for us! Okay, maybe I’m being a little dramatic, but it could very well be true. I’m attending the showing with a fully charged camera in hand, so I’ll be sure to capture every wonderful (or terrible) detail and will report back tomorrow.
