Asked by Ms, Massachusetts • Mon Mar 29, 2010
I recently had a buyer from California make a first (and final) offer on my house in Massachusetts. As sellers, we rejected the offer and made a counter offer. The buyer rejected our counter offer and we both moved on.
In the mean time, we have held a very successful open house with many buyers expressing interest in possibly making an offer to our broker. My broker is diligently (love her) working these buyers.
Today my broker got a call back from the California buyer and has received another (I suspect final again) verbal offer from them that is higher than their original "final offer", but about $5000 below our drop dead price.
Do we counter again (we will be dropping our original price we gave them by $5000), wait to see what the buyers from the open house might do, or just accept their new offer outright?
Note: The wife loves the house, but the husband is the one drawing the line in the sand.
