[ - ] All you Donald Trump critics seem to forget a very important fact - he was RIGHT about the Iraq war (that it would be a mistake) while most of the GOP was WRONG. Even "Democrat" Hillary stupidly voted to force Bush to invade. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

We had 3 offers fall through since listing for sale a year ago. The first 2 offers were for 410K and realtor advised us the 1st buyer was barely qualified (we couldnt even counter as it was the max they coulf offer based on pre approval letter). 2nd buyer was a contractor and said 410K was his best/final. DH said "no thanks". 3rd offer was last month at 425K but buyer was in a rental and pressured to move, and backed out when we accepted the offer. DH doesnt want to sell below 425K which I feel isnt going to happen. [ Reply | More ]

Of course! We lost a house that didn't appraise and the owners just would NOT understand that it wasn't a conspiracy but a reality in the market (we weren't willing to pay over market for it. It's still on the market, so I guess we weren't the only ones). Unless there's something squirrely in the appraisal, say $420 is your final counter. [ Reply | More ]
