Ive been having trouble with my agent, because she really doesnt like to submitt low offers, we have a real short demand over here, and a bunch of Investors, so she's always asking to put bids over the asking...
so i took it upon myself to make something happen.
I went on the mls, and scopped out three houses. i called all three and asked what the status was.
the first two were listed wrong, because he didnt state it was a shortsale in the description, and i dont have time to wait. plus there was six offers already from which he hasnt heard from the bank.
NOW, the Last house. Well thats a different story. It was labeled a 2/2 1,400 sqft. and in good condition. I called to get more info and the owner Just wants to sell. No short sale or reo, His wife had just passed. I scheduled a time to look at it, and today was the day. it actually has 3 bedrooms / 2 baths all granit counter tops, and carpet is fine, theres no real problem with the house...a lil small in the living room but no big deal.
Heres the best part.
it been on the market for 2 months and no offers. the owner wants to leave to arizona, and wants to sell, i told the real estate agent that i would let her represent me as well if she could get my offer accepted, since i was going to be very aggresive with it. also if she takes my offer, as soon as it sells, i would Re-fi and sell it again and let her list it on my behalf...so she could make "thrice" the commission.
She said she seen my offer and will call me tommorrow
last but not least the house was listed at 144,350
i offer'd 119,990!!!!!!
impossible is nothing!
