Why can’t you buy a house for the listed price?
So, my girlfriends dad has been trying to buy a house. They have looked at 6 houses and put in bids on three. They lost the first bid because they were only 5k over list. The second and third bids were also lost, and he bid 10k over the list on both. He was telling us that the only houses that are easy to buy are junk fixer-uppers.
This 700 billion bailout may be paying back bankrupt investors who are buying houses? This is strictly paranoid conspiracy at this time.
