YES! YES! YES!

It's ours!  They have come down and essentially accepted the offer we gave them.  There is something that our realtor will have to explain tomorrow when we sign on the bottom line about 'if we offer them $5000 more, we will get that $5000 back at closing'  I'm not sure what that is about but we're still within what we were willing to pay.  Evidently our little walk through worked since they have offered it to us 'as is' for $45000 less than their initial asking price
Now, it just has to pass inspections of house, well and septic and we can close at the end of April.  We have lots of work to do here between now and then and then LOTS of work before we can even move but I can dig a garden and get my main crop stuff in at the new place.
I'm a bit stunned right now.  Usually when the phone rings at 10 pm it isn't good news.

THANKS FOR ALL THE POSITIVE THOUGHTS,  IT WORKED!!!

  5. I'm over the moon for you! Yay! It looks like they realized that they might never truly be rid of it if offered at a higher price without the "as is" caveat, since as you find things wrong you could come back potentially with a suit.

    Since it does have that "as is" tag, be sure to get a GREAT home inspector!

    I'm super happy for you. Now you'll have to keep posting all the things you do there so we can learn from you.

  6. WoooWhooo! Wonderful news! More wonderful news- 30 fixed interest rates may drop near 4.5% in the next week or so. A good time to get a loan or refinance.

  8. I'm guessing the $5000 is earnest money. If for some reason you are unable to get a loan or close on the deal, they get to keep the $5000. If everything goes well and you eventually close on the deal, the $5000 is deducted off the final price. We did something similar when we bought our house.

    Anyway, congrats!
