Good luck with that

Hubby's house is on the market. It's only been 2 weeks so we're not desparate (yet). Had our first offer on the house. This is what they offered:
  • Wanted to move in July 1 (yep, they wanted us out in 3 weeks and we were actually willing to make it happen. The house we want is vacant so it could be done)
  • Then wanted to rent from us from July 1 to October 1 so that they could take advantage of Obama's 3 year new homeowner rebate (so basically we'd be carrying 2 mortgages and hoping and praying that they didn't screw us, but we were again willing to do this and our lender had already checked to make sure we would qualify)
  • Offered $14,000 below the asking price
  • Wanted $5,000 in closing costs
  • Offered $10 for my washer/dryer

Are you people smoking crack or something???? Sure, and why don't I help pack up your house and move you too!! Geesh!! Uh, that would be a big fat NO!! And good luck finding someone who will do all that for you!


  1. Wow! That is a bit much. Hopefully you get a better offer soon. I am thinking anything is better than that...yikes!

  2. Who did they think they were? Someone either gave them bad advice, or they're crazy. (I'm going with the latter.)
