Asked by David, Chicago Heights, IL • Wed Oct 15, 2008
My wife and I want to close on a house in mid to late January. However we are hoping to buy this one particular house in the neighborhood we like. It has been on the market for a long time and the present owners still live there. We recently saw that they not only reduced their asking price again, but also made a seperate online listing offering the house as a rental. Needless to say, my wife and I are concerned that the house will be unavailable in January. Is it appropriate/acceptable to write an offer up that specifies that the closing date will not be until late January? We currently do not have a realtor but we are meeting with a mortgage counseler tomorrow to discuss our mortgage options.
