So as a few of you know I have been looking for a new house to buy for the family... I have tossed a few different houses around made a few low ball offers but nothing to exciting...
Well over the weekend we found the house that we LOVE!!! It is exactly what we are looking for!
Some details: Tri level brick house 3 bed 2.5 bath 1900sqft living room, family room, wbfp, screened in rear porch 2 car attatched garage.
House is in short sale with approval on offer in 72 hours.
County appr: $132,000
Total view $145,000
Comps $140,000- $145,000
The realtor (which is a good friend of mine) told me he is pretty sure the house could be bought for $115-$110. So I put my first offer at $85 on monday. He just called me today and said he just got another offer on the house today and it is a lot higher then mine. Well knowing he is not legally allowed to tell me what the other offer is he kind of secretly told me it was for 110,000. So if I want to raise my offer to match that now would be the time to do it before he submits this other offer....
The house is in great condition. Has a brand new roof on it. Basically doesn't need anything. Only thing it is missing is a fenced in yard and detached garage like we wanted... It has a big enough yard to do that though...
Does anyone think that at $110 that is still a good deal as long as an appraisal can come back and match those...
Sorry for the long post!!
