Give it at least a week. You very well could get 3% more than what you're asking just because of interest and people bidding against each other. Patience.

Wife wants list price though, so... how do I politely tell her she's stupid?
tell her I waited 6 years , and finally sold my lake home.

Take the money and run. If it comes up a little short , you could be paying tax's until it is sold, and it would be more than the difference.

I wouldn't be so quick to accept an offer that comes in under asking.

The buyer can try to weasel the price even lower during the inspection process, etc.

I like when listings state that there will be 2-3 group showings and that ALL offers will be reviewed on the Friday following the showings. This would put the pressure on the buyers (which sounds like you'd have a few) to get their best offers in right away.

Of course there's always the chance that you turn down this offer and nothing comes in at or above that price but that sounds unlikely.

*what's your asking price?*

I'd preach patience as several others have. 3% under asking within the first day is a non-starter unless the place needs a lot of work.

Actually, she wasn't even on the mortgage or the title. She technically had no say.

But now that I work for the fed, this is no longer the case.

I make about $300 more than her. Still nice the wife is pulling in good money though, although she'll probably quit working once we have kids.

I get that some people would like to hold out for those few extra dollars, but I'm the type to take what I've got and be happy with it.

Especially considering we never planned on getting list price to begin with. We had always assumed 3% less, but because of the huge attention we got on our house day one, now she's being greedy.

Hold off for more offers. There's no reason to rush, especially given the amount of immediate interest in the property you have seen. Those "few extra dollars" may very well cover closing costs for you. It's not greedy to seek to get as much value out of your property as you can.

House sold 1% below list price.

Took four days.

Signed the paperwork this afternoon, going to put an offer on another house this evening.

Process was quick.

Why'd you sell?

Bigger place or just nicer?
