What else is wrong about that house --- over priced? no curb appeal? bad condition? outdated? Have you noticed other problems, like overly noisy goings-on? Non-stop barking dogs?
How about the rest of the neighborhood? One bad home may be a problem, but if the rest of the neighborhood looks fine and has the qualities you want, then don't worry about the next door house unless there are other more serious problems that will be hard to overcome. Eventually, after you close escrow on yours, the seller may reconsider and do something to better market the property.
Congratulations on your purchase.....and hope you have many happy moments at your new home.
In todayâ€™s market, short sale houses have signs up for months while the bank decides what to do with an offer.
I hope that you have asked your REALTORÂ® for information about the house. Your REALTORÂ® is in a much better position than we are since we are all generalizing.
Pacita is right, if you don't like the other house others may not like it either. Ardenwood is a great area, but if the floor plan is bad, you can't change that. As Pacita mentioned it could be many reasons.
The main thing is that the home you are buying is nice and you like it.
So there can be structural issues, there can be certain repairs or even a city citation that without it being cured the property can never sell. If your home is in good condition and appraises for the price you offered or better, you have nothing to worry about.
It seems to me that the seller may not be motivated enough but that should not stop you from buying in that neighborhood. I have sold several homes in Ardenwood and it is a good area with Ardenwood Elementary School and Forest Park Elementary School as the best schools there.

It is mainly a floorplan issue for us. The kitchen is in the centre of the house and is enclosed by walls. The place is also not very well lit. The community is great with none of the other problem you mentioned. It's a short walk from Forest Park elementary and is in a quiet and beautiful area.
