Saturday F**k Off

The answer was no.

Their counteroffer was $10,000 over asking plus lots of cash up front, in other words, F**K OFF, we don't want to sell to you.  Or anyone else, evidently.

That really sucks. :(

Seem to be a lot of folks lately who don't have a realistic idea what their property is actually worth. It's not the same market it was a couple of years ago almost anywhere...

The market is what people think it is.... Just wait 3 months, and if it's still on the market, make an offer for 10 grand less than what you offered the first time.

If they wanted full highest price, they should of sold last year, not be trying to sell now.

About 10 years ago, my boss had some next door neighbors who had their house on the market for 5 years!!! I could never figure out why they wanted it on the market or why the realtor didn't just drop them as a client.

The neighborhood is very pricey - they wanted an offer with NO contingencies! I couldn't believe it. I know that's why it never sold. The chances of someone having the cash in hand, walking up and buying the place were about nil.

Some people shouldn't have their house on the market. Period!

I suspect in time... they'll wish they'd taken your offer. But by then you'll have found something you like and have made your own and you will quietly laugh to yourself that you got the last laugh. Well... at least I would. :)

10K over the asking price?!?! WTF? I take it the house hasn't been on the market for long... Perhaps this one wasn't meant to be. In that case, there's an even better one out there for you!

A pox on them I say! A pox!!

It just wasn't your house - something better will come along.

You need revenge...just go pour a cupful of pool chemicals on their lawn. It will create a brown spot...which they will water, thus spreading the 'brown' spot even further. When it's really spread out, and they're wanting to move for fighting it, THEN you go in and make the offer. For what you want. And tell them to resod or knock a few thousand more off for you to 'fix' it yourself.
