Here’s the situation:
My fiance’ and I are in the process of buying our first home. We’ve found one we really like in a neighborhood in Dallas that we like, and that seems safe and nice.
The weird part is that the sellers seem really, REALLY eager to sell. To the point of agreeing to almost every demand we’ve made.
We had the buyer’s inspection done last week, and nothing major was wrong- just a few minor electrical outlet problems, a screwy sliding door latch, beat up gutters, and a crack in a shower door.
We asked them to have all of them repaired, thinking that it’d be the start of some negotiations, and that we’d get some, but not all repaired on their nickel.
To our surprise, they agreed to get everything fixed within something like 4 hours from the time we signed the addendum for repairs.
Now, after that, (after we’ve already signed the contract), they’re offering us more money to close earlier, to the tune of doubling the new carpet allowance.
I’m kind of suspicious, but then again, I was with the inspector when he inspected the place, and he pointed everything out to me in detail, and seemed to be a very thorough and bright fellow.
What reasons can you all think of that the sellers would be in such a crazy hurry to get out?
