Bank made counter offer!!!!!
Ok, so after a week of nail biting and waiting to hear from the bank...we finally did! We offered the asking price (249K) with 6% back towards closing. They countered with $255 with 6% back and another $2000 (total $3000) deposit to be held until closing.
We are happy because that was going to be our max offer, but the whole idea of having $3000 out there is scary! We lose it if anything goes wrong....
We've been turned down and started over so many times with house hunting. Now I'm freaked out about moving on to the next part of this whole house buying thing!!!
