You sound like me right now!! My husband and I have been house searching for a few months and man is it nerve wrecking!! We are going back and forth with a home right now and the seller is being so stubborn. We are literally $5,000 apart right now and we have bumped up our offer a lot and she just keeps coming back in $1,000 increments. We are seriously about to walk on this one. There are a few others we have offers in on and we either lose out to a bidding war, or we are still waiting. I find myself checking my phone all the time. I seriously need a vacation after this!! Good luck to you guys.

rittenhousenewbee:  Congrats on them accepting your offer!! I like to think that once we have an offer accepted I will relax a bit, but I know that is not true. Until the inspection and appraisal are done I am sure I will be stressed out! We did not get the last home we put an offer in on. I guess where we are looking (California) it is a sellers market. Everything is priced very high and people are paying full price or higher. Every home we have put an offer in on we have gotten beat out by other bids with either a higher down payment or not asking for any closing costs. My realtor and broker are meeting today to hopefully figure out a way to get our closing costs paid for. That will make us much more competetive when putting in offers. In the meantime, I have found some more homes to look at and will be doing that tomorrow. Fingers crossed. Congrats again!!
