it the way it has always been since I have started in 2002 owners have a bottom line set and so are willing to wait most are in no rush to sell, most are not totally honest with their realtors either. So welcome to our world, Normally a property priced at $799K the owner traditionally will accept nothing less thank $750K, Want more we can talk about it if you would like to contact me.
Best of luck to you. FYI you should have a buyer agency agreement when you choose a Realtor

Good afternoon 'M'...
while i love some of the shows on HGTV, the best advice i can give you as a first time
homebuyer is first, be sure you are working with a buyers agent, someone who is representing
your best interest, second, speak to a mortgage rep to see how much home you can reasonably
afford, then, when you find a home that you feel is the right fit for you, you will have yourself lined
up to know, how much of a down payment you can afford and what is the max offer you will be
comfortable making, knowing what your payments will be.. If you need a sellers concession you
are cutting things close.. and it will appear to the homeowner that you may not be able to afford
the home, deminishing the credibility of your offer.
are you working with a buyers agent now.?
best regards,

CALL YOUR UTILITY COMPANY. They may have a low interest rate loan available for this purpose. They may have a list of vendors, you can get estimates from. I used the "Borrow to Benefit" program some years ago for the conversion of a split level from electric to gas. It was a very low rate and up to 10 years to pay (always pay off early if possible). Good luck. ... more
