Home Sellers - I recommend keeping the house in showing condition at all times and allow all showings, even short term or weekend showings, some buyer's won't come back later.

USAFDAVE is right, real estate is like any other commodity. Supply and demand dictate the prices. Pricing in Portales tends to be a little lower.

Hello Jimmie,

Was there a Seller Disclosure available when you purchased the home? If yes, what did it say regarding the roof and any possible leaks?

What exactly did the home inspection report say regarding these areas?

Inspections are best for finding defects before a sale. However, All known defects must be disclosed by a seller to the buyer. The seller is still liable after the sale for defects they did not disclose. It would require that you prove the seller knew or should have known about the defect. If the neighbors knew, then you can be fairly confident of being able to prove the sellers knew. You will need legal counsel to pursue this course of action. ... more

There is a specific power of attorney that is required. A general POA won't do it. Contact the closing or title agent, or your legal officer on your base, and they can help draft one and get it to you for notarized signature. ... more

Whether it's the price the seller gave for the home or not, if this is the offer you want to make, go for it. All he can do is: reject, counter, or accept. I would expect that an acceptance is very unlikely because of selling expenses and closing costs which means the seller would have to come to the closing with money out of his pocket---many don't have the money to do that.

But to answer your question, over my 30 years of experience, making an extremely low offer HAS offended the seller at times--in the seller's mind it may not seem overpriced in comparison to others selling around it, maybe the market has actually gone up that much, or maybe he bought it at a really low price to begin with to turn for a profit, or maybe he's put a lot of money into it with upgrades, etc.----don't know the circumstances and there could be several to consider. But, if offended, the offer is usually rejected. That is the only reason, if you truly want the home, you might reconsider so that you can at least hear back from the seller with a counter.

Thanks, Max Watt, Re/Max First Place, Clovis, NM or email

A home on the market that long - should be happy with any offer.

The price is obviously too high based upon days on the market.

Go for it!

Good Luck!
