Dayyyuuummmm ...

Sellers just came back with an outrageously crappy counter offer ... and I was offering full price with some closing costs and a home warranty. I don't believe I shall be living in house #1 ...

you offered full price and they counter-offered? are they on crack? are they aware of the current housing market and economic situation? WTF???

good lord, a bird in the hand...

In this economy? Fools!

Oh well, something even better will come along.

Gosh, I hope it comes along quickly. I'm running out of time ;-)

The problem with FSBOs is that sometimes agents can actually offer good advice, like "A bird in the hand ..."

Anyway, I countered their counter with something I think is extremely reasonable. Oh wait, my original offer was reasonable to begin with ... anyway, my new offer was sort of like saying "OK, you have a point, however ..." At first I was like "Screw the crazy people who took three full days to come back with a crappy counter," but then I considered that this house does fit my needs very well, so I'd give it one more try. But if they don't have a response to me by the end of the day then I'll go settle for House #@, or maybe something else.
