Ive been putting alot of work in Since getting the book a month ago, ive attempted to put a few offers in, but agents never responded back and the agents ive been trying to get on my team were not liking my strategy SO.
I went straight to the listing agent and found this house Listed at 144,350. The house has been on the market for about two months with no offers??? and the pictures look great. I called the agent reppin the house, and after asking a few questions, i had found out it was a death in the family and the onwer wanted to relocate.
I went to look at the house and boy was it too good to be true. rooms were a good size carpet just needs to be updated, paint is decent but counters in kitchen are new apliances not even a year old. AND the best part they built another room. that isnt listed in the MLS. so its actually a 3/2 not a 2/2.
After looking at the house I told her she would hear an offer from us later that day. I used a LOI that I learned from this site(thanks dg fam) and I started with 119,990. Today she called back and countered with 125,000. My partner and I was happy being that 125 was our Max, so we went to meet the agent for lunch and discussed the final decisions...
to fasten the story, we countered again to 123,000. and they accepted. The house last sold for 117,000 a yr ago, and in 06' it sold for 335,000. So i figured it would work out.
We sign papers tomorrow, but this is my only concern. I would like to know what the house is appraised for before closing. I've heard of an Aprasial Contingency but unsure of how to use it. im sure the house is worth more than 123,000 but i would still like to know.
All in All, I gotta say that this was onyl possible with all the help ive recieved from everyone here. I had no idea what escrow was before buying deans book a month ago. and here I am today Talking to a realtor with the confidence and knowledge to make a deal happen.
THANK YOU TO EVERY ONE HERE.
