We made an offer on this house… And we’re currently in negotiating limbo. The sellers have owned it less than a year. They put a good amount of money into it redoing the kitchen, painting most of the interior, and replacing all the carpet. The house is 18 years olds though, and thus still has some rooms that need updating. And it’s in Hudson, a very, very small town outside of Cedar Falls. Our realtor thinks it’s overpriced and thus helped us make a reasonable offer. Apparently they didn’t like the offer, as they were barely willing to drop from asking. We negotiated some, our offer isn’t contingent on us selling our current home, and we’re willing to close whenever is best for them… I’m not sure what their deal is, as we’ve gotten no feedback since last night when we gave our final offer. I fear they are going to let us walk away. Which our realtor thinks is insane, since the buyer pool here for this house is tiny. We’ll see I guess. I do really like the house, but it’s a house. Not getting it won’t be the end of the world. Maybe it’s not meant to be. I’ll update when I hear back from our realtor.
