We called their bluff

I can't remember the last time I was this angry.

We told our buyers, "Take it or leave it."

They came back with, "But... but... but... we don't want to leave it but we want to pay less money. We told you that before!"

This ENRAGED me. ENRAGED. Too bad. Then someone else will buy it. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out. So again we said, "Take it or leave it."

They took it. They're buying the house at the originally agreed upon price. Woo!

And I feel like we won! (I hope that's not bad.) So all is good. We don't have to put the house back on the market.

And in other good news, the painter called and he can start working on Monday so the house will be move-in ready earlier than we had previously anticipated! Woo!

(I'm still pissed at our buyers, but at least we're selling the house on our terms. I hope they hate our neighbors.)

Unbelievable. I'm so glad you didn't back down. Sounds like they know they're already getting a good deal and were starting to be greedy. Boo on them.

I'm SO relieved for you!

I don't think I have ever commented before- but I read this post and you sound JUST like me :) Especially the "I hope they hate our neighbours" part. lol... I was chuckling to myself! So glad things are working out! Selling and buying is VERY stressful!

That is crazy! But at least, like you said, you sold it on your terms. Soon it will be a memory... and you can focus on your awesome new place. :)

I am glad you were able to get them to take it for the price you wanted. Way to go on the bluff calling!

When we were selling our condo the guy came in with a bid 30,000 below asking in a prime market. I told him to find a better condo at our price. And he paid full price. sometimes people just need to be told NO.

Oh, I hate buyers. I had some buyers who said they were going to back out because "it was taking too long". Really, what did they think would happen? I would magically make it take less time? Or moving to another option would mean they got a house more quickly??!
