Kolozsvary, Home Buyer in Brooklyn, NY

A bid by my co-buyer has been accepted at 305000 for this house listed at 325000. I do not agree. Can we risk?

withdrawing the offer and come back later at a lower price?

If the offer has been accepted - I assume there are signatures to that effect. However, when you say co-buyer, again I assume you mean you will be on the loan ap.

I believe both signatures would be required at the loan table, but if the contract only has the one buyer listed - that one buyer is obligated as long as there are no contingencies. You will have to clarify for a better answer, but at face value it seems as though your "co-buyer" just bought a house with or without you.

To help you out, we need more information. Did you already sign the offer at $305K? Or only your co-buyer signed? Is your concern that your first offer was accepted? If so, we've got a whole thread on that issue... Please re-post these answers, and we'll try to help...

Until a written contract is signed by BOTH PARTIES (buyer & seller)), you are free to do what you please, at your own risk (of lossing the deal)

Are you working with a Realtor on this transaction? Is this new or existing construction? If I were the seller, while I would entertain all offers, I would be wary about entertianing an offer the second time around.

We could use a little more information here. Also, did you both sign the offer to purchase? Did the sellers accept your offer? Are you thinking you could have purchased it for less? Hummm.
