Should we be kicking ourselves?
We have had our house on the market for 3 months...and had our first offer a couple days ago, after lowering the asking price by $22,100. Our offer was still $50,000 below our already lowered price and they wanted a 3 month contingency....we countered with another $20,000 lower than our previous amount, but would not do a contingency for that long. Our neighbor has taken a contingency and she is so sorry. Her house was showing regularly and since the listing shows up as a "contingency", she has had no showings at all.
Ours is not a case of "have to sell", but rather a want to sell and down-size....but we do have some "wiggle room" in our price point. The market is very slow here for higher quality large homes, so now I am kicking myself thinking maybe our first offer might be our best offer.
Did anyone have their first offer the best/only offer you have had on your home....and did you take it? Did you take a contingency when you sold your home?...or would you take one?
Second guessing and nervous....but thanks for your replies.
