I know you don’t think this is funny, but it made me laugh. People are crazy. I’d tell them no. Seller’s market out there and chances are it’ll work in your favor one way or another.

Yea, no. They’re on the hook. Surprised their agent even raised it or your agent passed it on to you. Both of them should’ve reminded the buyer what they offered and you accepted

And frankly OP if your deal falls through I’d suggest you fire the agent. They are a dime a dozen

Is there any other contingency like for HoA docs? Just say no worst they can do is back out

I say no. Stick to the original terms. It’s a bait and switch on their end

i know it’s agency/client dependent, but roughly how much do you travel working at an experiential agency?

I know getting rich requires a lot of patience, and saving / investing / reinvesting for x years. When did you began to see a fast progression ? I’m 26 and am very impatient. 😂 I just hit my 100k and live in HCOL area and feel like it isn’t enough.

Bought a 300k end unit townhouse in Atlanta, 14 months ago with 10% down (3.65% interest rate). Prices in subdivision have been increasing over that period. This month 2 non-end units listed for 330k and sold right away. The opposite end unit on my 5 unit building was listed for 340k and is currently pending. What is the best way to stop paying PMI since since I should be at 20% equity?

I have a garage with enough ceiling height to add a 300 sqft bonus room. That is a 15% increase in square footage of the home. It would be accessed from the middle of a long staircase (3 stories) that goes from my back door/garage to the main living area. The room would have windows, but into the garage area, and minimal natural light from the garage door windows. I don’t really need the space, but if the investment pays for itself and more, I’d want to enjoy the space. Do you think it worth it?
