I put in a bid of 135K with 5K for closing cost on an asking price of 149K. Seller's agent rejected offer and said a bid came in at 144K and they countered for 146K. This house has been on the market for almost a year, was almost sold at one point, but the mortgage didn't go through.
I'm willing to go as high as 140K, with or without closing costs paid. My financing is solid and I'm ready to close very quickly. I really liked this house, but I refuse to overpay for it. I've been looking at other homes, but I haven't found anything else that I like yet and I would like to close in 60 days max.
I'm thinking that I may continue to look at houses for a month or so and, if I haven't found anything, I'll check back with the initial home and see if the sale is going through. If not, I'll resubmit at 140K.
Does this sound good? Or should I resubmit now and ask him to consider my offer it the current contract does not go to closing?
