My realtor called me back last night with some decent news.
Better then bad news or no news at all!
The seller's agent was finally able to get a hold of the seller and they will be meeting this morning to counteroffer my offer - she wants to keep her fridge and stove.
I am giving her the full offer price and I'm paying closing so I feel she should at least give me the appliances. But you know what - I'm not going to let me get down. I will accept this counter offer.
I would LOVE new appliances! I would have preferred to wait a little while is all I am saying.
She can't get rid of me so easily!
My realtor said her realtor said she was crying but not sure if it is because of the house situation.
I bet it is though. I'm sure it is very tough to lose your home. I do feel sorry for her. But things happen and you just have to move on. For all I know this could be a good thing for her. Maybe I am just thinking positive for her since I want her home. I'm torn. I do know at this point she will be losing the house at one point or another so it might as well be to me. :)
As long as she accepts my offer once again next step will be acceptance from her bank.
This could be a very long process - I looked it up online last night. It said sometimes this homes can be approved in as little as 30 days (tiny ray of hope), they normally take 2 - 3 months, but can take up to years sometimes in extreme cases (Eeek!).
In the meantime I will keep looking at homes online and will go see a few with my realtor. I know the logical thing to do is not place all my eggs in one basket only to possibly be disappointed in the end.
