The Counter Offer

After sleepless nights, and crunching numbers, and many discussions, The Mister and I decided to try and see if we could come to a meeting point with the seller. We had nothing and everything to loose. Everyone must have thought we were crazy to try but we had been looking for a long time, and if anyone knew what was out there in our price range and in the areas we liked, it was us. This was the safest neighborhood we had seen, there were excellent schools a few blocks away, and we were already spending a majority of our time in that part of town anyway. It made sense to us.

After our agent spoke to the seller's agent, he asked us to come up with a letter to accompany our counter. We wrote it off and our agent presented it. Even though we loved the house, at the end of the day, we were prepared to loose. If we lost the house, we knew it would be for good reason. We had never been steered wrong before and we knew this would be no exception. We turned in our counter April 1, 2009.
