SewLittleTime Posted March 4, 2012 Share Posted March 4, 2012 We found a house that we like. It meets all of needs including my dream list of formal dining room, a front window to display my Christmas tree, place for the piano, big kitchen, and all the kids to have their own rooms. It does have a few issues. The house is still owned by the builder. It has a few issues that the builder went back and corrected with the foundational walls in the basement. He rented it out for 2 years to make sure the the issue was corrected. No more issues since the fix. There are slight little things that need fixed, but things that dh and I could do in time. It is at the top end of our budget, and so we would be willing to make an offer, but we won't go above X amount because it will stretch our budget just too much. Plus, with the things that need to be done, we don't think we should pay what is being asked. We don't want to make a lowball offer either. So, my question is is there a rule of thumb for making an offer on a house? The builder has reduced the price $7,000 just recently. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
