We’re in negotiations to buy a house. Seller has agreed to all our terms except price. The guy has finally acknowledged he’s going to lose money on the sale from when he bought it. We originally offered 10% below the already reduced price with the house having sat on the market for almost three months. Seller countered with 2.2% below asking and accepting all other terms. Our max is 7.5% below asking. Not sure what our next move should be.

Additional Posts in Private Equity and the Buy Side

So I was talking to an old colleague who offered to recommend me to his MD for a lateral move into the group at AVP. He even asked me, are you absolutely sure you will be ok with a lateral move? And I said yes, as long as the MD agrees to make me a VP conditional on my performance in one year. I agreed because I am changing countries (not in NA). But, just given how much work experience I have (15 years sell and buy side), I want to tell my colleague that I want VP now. How to phrase this best?


Anyone familiar with back office work at a PE firm? Specifically pay/hour/if work is interesting.

Can someone help me figure out this KKR role a recruiter sent me? It's under KKR Valuations team titled "PE Valuations Associate."

Seemed promising but it mainly seems to have administrative functions where you review valuations models from deals teams and then facilitate the way it's reported and then presented to senior management. Seems like a weird in between role for Deals - Operations - Management.

Can't tell if it's bait and hoping someone can help.

Hi fellow PE fishes, seeking career advice.
Currently in an APAC based LMM/MM PE focusing on tech and had joined the firm straight out of school. I intend on sticking to PE long term, but am curious about my career and financial trajectory in 3 cases.

1) stick to my current firm and eventually make partner

2) go for a Master’s degree and then move to an UMM/MF PE or MBB -> UMM/MF

3) Stay in the current firm and start my own fund with other Associates in the future.
