Some people just suck

I think when you sell your house you should advertise it like a car or any other like-valued asset: "free to good home", "300K or BO", etc. Here's why:

We're in the process of looking for a new house now that we've finally sold the seattle house. We found one we could work with. it's not our dream house by any means, but it's got all the right features and is in a great location. The biggest down side is that it needs a lot of work: new kitchen, new roof, new deck, pool work, the garage is actually falling backwards, among other things. So we offer what is a fair price minus some of the biggest repairs it needs right away. We figured that if the sellers are interested in negotiating, they'll counter with someehting close to the middle or maybe a little bit higher. Do they? noooooo. they counter for 5k less than the full price. What I want to know is how in the HELL is this a negotiation? Why didn't they just say, "price firm" or not counter?

I hate this part. I had to try 3 or 4 times to get a house in seattle -- every deal kept falling thru. So we're back at the beginning and really there's not much here to look at. we're probably going to be at this for a while. *sigh*
