You need to decided if you want to sell your house.
Then you need to learn how to negotiate.
You have a real buyer.
Make it work.
Or hire someone who can.
Best of success,

After you look at your net amount you will know whether to accept the offer or what kind of counter you wish to make.
Good luck to you!
It sounds like this offer is workable. There are alot of factors though that would determine the answer to your question. If you would like my help, I would be happy to speak with you to get more info so I could give you the best, informed answer possible. Just let me know.

You have several options, which one is best for your specific situation should be decided with an experienced local agent who is a great negotiator. You can respond, "no thank you, come back with a more serious offer and we'll consider it". You can review the market and if you come to the conclusion you are over priced, accept. You can counter.
A counter offer should be based on an updated analysis of the current inventory, Active, Pending and Sold with an eye to the average days on the market, your time on the market and your level of motivation and any assessment you can make of the buyers motivation. If the buyer has an agent, a review of their history representing buyers never hurts either.
There are so many other issues to take into consideration to come up with the right strategy that I could fill pages and probably not relay enough information for you to use effectively. This is where a great agent comes in and is worth more than whatever commission you offer.
Best of luck and let us know how it turns out.
If you have not received any offers you may want to take this offer or counter offer.
I would assume you are doing a "For Sale By Owner"? If this is the case, you are probably going to get alot of lower offers as buyers (most likely investors) know you are not paying any commissions and will look for you to pass that savings along to them.
Sounds like you have a lot of questions and have some uncertainty......Hire a Realtor ASAP if you have not done so, and let them guide you through the process.
