So the owners of the house countered. And husband and I are now kind of "eh" about it.
Weird. Now, we know we totally lowballed. But they countered at 10k higher than our lowball. Understand, where we live, no one pays "retail" for houses here. So their counter is only 5K below list.
And there IS that whole furnace thing....
Our realtor called with the counter offer, and we really haven't figured out our answer. I mean, there's a part of me that's like "ehhhh, moving is hard, our house is nice, it wouldn't hurt us to hang out here a while longer and get our finances more in order. (I saw our FICO numbers....cringe)
And here's the thing....we don't NEED to move. Those people NEED to sell their house.
Gah. What is happening to me?!?! A week ago I was ready to move tomorrow. Now, I'm like, eh, whatever.
Seriously. I could just walk at this point. And really be fine with it.
I'm trying to figure out if it's the universe telling me something, or if I'm getting jitters and letting this be an excuse.
Throw in the fact that our real estate agent is superawesome and has really been great with us, and I feel a little guilty that he will have worked so hard for naught.
But that's no reason to buy a house.
