To those of you who own a home, how long did it take you to find it and did you haggle with the owner at all? To those who are looking for a home, how is that working out?
I ask because DH and I found a home we both really adore. Our only problem is that the owner is putting sentimental value in the home (Like an extra 1000 because the dog had puppies in the back yard, things like that.) We dealt with someone like this before and ultimately had to walk away. That house is still on the market. The Realtor is in talks with him to see if she can bring the price down to a more reasonable request. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but I really like the house and so does my husband...which is rare that we both like everything about it.
Now we could just buy cheaper home and fix it up and pay it off quicker, but we look at that home and both agreed that would be the forever home...
Anyhow, I was just wondering what you ladies went through or even what you are going through if you're looking into a home.
