The big Victorian house DH and I are looking at has an EXCELLENT possibility of becoming our new home!!

It appraised for 48,000!!!! They are asking 49,900 which means we won't have the same problem as we did he last time!

DH wants to talk them down to around 45,000. Now here's the fun part...giggle...the realitor called today and asked if we had gotten the appraisal back. We are doing things a bit different from the norm.

We got the appraisal before we do the paper work for the loan. Why? Because we didn't want to be disappointed if the house wasn't valued as high as the asking price. DH is going to call tomorrow and make an appointment. Then we'll negotiate!

Why am I laughing because she called? That tells me she still hasn't been able to get a serious buyer hooked! She keeps telling us that they are "motivated" sellers. Sounds to me like she REALLY wants to get this house off her hands!

Send up prayers, ladies, please!!

Ooh Good Luck! I am sending prayers! It is my dream to live in an old victorian! Does the real estate agent have a website with pictures on it? I would love to see!

Sounds like your having a little fun with the real estate game.
Wishing you get the beautiful blue house on the corner with a nice porch for sitting and a yard that can't wait for you to plant some flowers. At the price you want to pay of course.
Can't wait to hear you've got it!!
