How much should we give when countering our counter offer?
My future wife and I put a offer on a home last week at 131,000, with an asking price of 139,900. We were counter offered by the owners at 135,900, but they accepted our other terms (i.e. leave the deep freezer, pay for a home warranty.) The home has been on the market for over 6 months. It is the nicest home that we have seen so far, and it is in a good neighborhood. Still, over 200 homes are for sale in this area at the current time, as reflected in the asking price (it went on the market over 164,000 during the summer). We are going to counter offer the counter offer, but we are having a hard time coming to a decision. Any help?No Tag
