Hello Bethel Home Buyer,
I find it interesting that the bank has changed hands and now wants to renegotiate your offer after it was accepted. Perhaps the owners of the home had accepted your offer and then it took the bank a year to look at your offer and have now countered. Do keep in mind that the bank has the final say on the sales price; not the owners.
Yes, you can counter offer what the bank is asking but keep in mind that the bank is also looking at comparable recent sales in the nieghborhood. I don't know what amount you had originally offered but I do hope that you have an experienced agent to assist you through the short sale process as it does require patience and perseverance on your part.
Good luck on your offer!

I like the floor plans in Timber Oaks better but I like the location of Summit more. Both communities have sold well. Even though I'm not crazy about the floor plans in Summitt, Toll Bros builds a nice condo.... more

You need to confer with your buyers agent. Unless all executed contracts are reviewed by an agent or attorney difficult to state.
I can certainly understand your point regarding "as is" .

Banks are very tricky and powerful, I have not had that happen, although, they did request the buyer to come to the table with more money, which to me Is changing the price of the house. When you say a binder , is that the same as a contract?? Good luck on that one.
