Well I think I named our subject appropriately. Seems like we take 1 step forward and two backward. As I stated in my original posting we put in an offer on a house that needed a LOT of work. That being the case we submitted a really low offer. Our realtor was given the listing and at the time of our offer, she hadn't determined the listing price yet. Well come to find out, she listed the house higher than what she told us it would sell for. The bank has asked for an extension which we gave, but now they're sitting on it - no doubt waiting for a better offer.
We're going on week #2 and still no calls from sellers on our ad in our local paper or our flyers. We were told that if we put bandit signs out we could be fined $80 each if we're caught, so we're still thinking on that. I placed 2 ads on Craigslist last night and neither one of them appeared. I've got to research why.
Thanks to all your posts with suggestions and encouragement, we're not letting this stop us. It's just one more bump in the road to success, and we're determined to succeed.
