Our mortgage broker told us it's pretty easy to get the seller to take care of most or all of the costs. But, if they don't we can take care of it. It's just so stressful not knowing what to expect.
The house you're looking at looks really nice, wish I could get something like that here for that price, lol! You should definetly get some comps of similar houses that have sold recently in the area, to get an idea of the market in that area. That will give you a better idea if it's worth what they're asking. Also, if you're going to ask them to cover closing costs, I wouldn't go too low with your asking price, assuming that it's priced fairly. You don't want to offend the sellers, everyone deserves a fair price for their home. I really hate when people that I'm working with say to me, well I'm just going to low ball them, offer them XXX, XXX being 40k lower than what they're asking, for example. I just don't think thats right at all. Not that I think you're doing that, I just wanted to vent, lol!
