    whew, what drama!
    so they want me to pay for an appraisal because they don't think it will appraise for my asking price.
    tough noogies---they can go find a perfectly lovely 2700 sq ft home on 30+ acres anywhere in this area for 350K.
    if they also want waterfalls, swimming holes, micro hydro and solar site, trout fishing and direct access to the snowmobile and long trails, then they need to pony up the bigbucks!!!!
    second showing this morning for a different family, they've been looking for 18 months for something 'special'.
    i am already so over this process and ready to move on.
    keep the jingles coming if you've got them, i know they work!
    thanks friends!

    So, they are saying they are willing to buy the property at a price that is acceptable to you but want you to pay for the appraisal in case the bank does not agree?

    Have you had an appraisal done? If you are confident in your pricing, you could offer to pay for the appraisal if it does not come through, that way it protects them and gives you access to a potential buyer.

    It does get tough as a buyer these days. I have been trying to buy a property and have paid for several appraisals and home inspections that found major issues and still have not bought a property. It gets expensive after a while!

    Suz, I don't know how long you've had the farm on the market but patience is a virtue to say the least.

    I've only seen about 3 farms in this area (western NY) sell rapidly(think < 1 month) in the past 8 yrs. Two because they were priced very low for a quick sale and the other was sold more for the home than the actual farm(a lovely restored cobblestone).

    But that said, I just reached over, grabbed my curb chain, and shook it hard for you!

    Is your asking price your final price?
    Will the property appraise for it?
    How badly do you want to move?
    Is the place costing you money (mortgage) for every month you don't sell?

    I am on the other end of the house shopping process and we made a low offer on one place. Was rejected. No big deal for us but the place had been on the market for 2 years and priced quite high for comparables in the area. Yes, it had some "unique"features, but apparently not enough to attract a buyer over the past 24 months.
    Similarly, had a good friend move out of state about 3 years ago. They also had a somewhat "unique" property. Refused the first offer they got (quite low) and proceeded to be stuck paying mortgage on it for the next 2 years with no other offers and THEN having to take a low purchase price anyways...

    Hope it works out for you but I just wanted to put things in perspective.

    By the way, we are now under contract on another horse property that JUST came on the market. Offered and were accepted at 10% less than asking price.
    A friend told me I was delusional. I almost fell off my unicorn.

    It would be nice if you had an appraisal to support your price. Or a lot of comps to support your price. That is the issue with the real estate market coming from a down market is that the comps are terrible, and then the low price stuff takes off first and then on up. So you can't get a comp to support your price, and you can't get a lender to loan on it. It is a waiting game. If the market were continuing to decline, I would look more seriously at the offers. In an upswing (which they say we are in), you need to probably wait it out.
