Must Sell! Make an Offer! But Will We Accept It?

Went and looked at another house last night. It was nice—but still needs freshening up. Nothing that we wouldn't expect in our price range. The house has been on the market for awhile just out of our price range. It came up in the listings again last week with a $5,000 price deduction—now within range. It's a 3 bedroom with a basement in a nice area (kinda sounds like the last house...sans creepy story). The story on this house is that it's about to be foreclosed on and the bank is pretty much in control.

Now...the spec sheet says: "Major price reduction! Sellers MUST sell!...Make us an offer!"

So, we look at the house and like it enough to make an offer...here we go again. We don't even get home from viewing the house (which we live all of maybe 7 minutes from) and our realtor is calling us. He spoke with the listing agent and was told about the aforementioned foreclosure & bank control. And, that the bank is being pricky about taking much of a deduction off the price—which IMO is too high.

My question to is, "Do you want to sell the house or not?" So here I sit...after getting up at 6:30 to go vote...waiting to hear from the realtor. Let's get on with it...accept, counter, or let us move on. I've got a few more locales up my sleeve to see.

Well, I hope it turns out the way you want it to...whatever way that may be.

Someday, when you have your ideal or "dream" home all of this yuckiness will be worth it...or forgotten...
