    I wasn't worried about negotiating their side for them, it's true.

    So looked at a bunch more houses that either came down or recently came on the market. Found one that the wife really likes and I like. its a VA foreclosure. Wanted to go look again this weekend but someone else put an offer in... So we did as well. Round 2.

    EDIT -
    Because some of you like to look at shit

    Keep at it @Langlier

    Don't settle. Get what you want. It'll happen.

    I know it's frustrating but just be patient.

    yup. i'm not discouraged. Theres a lot more things for sale/coming up for sale then there are buyers. There are like 3-4 other buyers in my range that are looking that I know of. Just waiting to find something that works both financially and logistically.

    So update - as mentioned we put that offer in 8 days ago. VA JUST NOW fucking responds. What do they respond with?

    Everyone put in your highest and best offers...

    The only other offer in withdrew.

    I damn near reduced my offer - but just put the same one in.

    Not a good way to start a relationship - but whatever I think the offer will be accepted (or countered with minor adjustments) next week sometime.

    and we finally came to an agreement. they didnt budge much on price -but i offered near there anyway. they conceded some closing costs and all in all i'm ok with the deal. now just hope inspections/assessments come out fine.

    so i'm on the ball and had my inspection today. crapped out AC and whoever winterized the place did a shit job. lets just say i'm very unhappy with how turning the water on for my inspection went as it did a lot of damage. That said the place looks very solid outside of that. Time to get some money back or repairs done...

    well lots more bullshit - but things are progressing. they are fixing the damage they caused by the crap winterization - but nothing with ac. so i'll be out a good chunk of change to get that fixed. but outside of that - appraisal came in good. financing is getting done but slowly. maybe someday ill move...

    well financing is approved and there is some minor adjustments that needed to be made to a couple things - but closing is 10/12.
