- Wedding: December 1969
We put an offer on a house that had been on the market for 4 months; we were their first offer. We accepted their counter offer, had the inspection done and they wouldn’t help at all with everything that needed to be fixed: a few major things and TONS of small things. We knew that if our minimum was not met we would walk away so we did when they wouldn’t budge. Fast forward almost 2 months, the house is still on the market and their most recent incentive for buyers did not work. As far as I know they haven’t had any other offers besides ours.
We’ve looked at other houses over this time and nothing feels right. We have also had two more months to save. While we are considered to be in a good market compared to the rest of the US, nothing is moving really. We figured we would give them a few weeks (mid September) to go back to their commute, which they hated, to see if they were a little more motivated. They were also told that if they could make a better offer for us, we would reconsider if we were still in the market. They have not gotten back to us.
We are now considering putting another offer but for me, if they haven’t gotten back with us, they really aren’t interested in coming down any. But you know what you get when you assume. We are also confused on how soon we should put the 2nd offer in. We are okay with holding off and if it’s too late, then it wasn’t meant to be.
I’m going to stop talking in circles. Has anyone else put in a second offer? How was that offer compared to the one you terminated?
