When selling a house, beware the “Re-negotiators.” There is a price set, offers are made, countered, and finally an amount is agreed upon. A contract is signed. The mortgage wait begins.
Then, the Re-negotiator brings up concerns (real and/or imagined) in an attempt to get the sellers to agree on a lower price than was initially agreed to. It makes me so mad that I end sentences on prepositions.
If you want to buy or rent a house but can’t afford it or negotiate it into the realm of reality for you at the outset, accept defeat and walk away. It was never yours. If you can afford it and more, but attempt to nickle and dime the owners to death after signing on the dotted line, you are cordially invited to eat a dick.
