The counter

For those of you not familiar with the Canadian way of buying and and selling property, they have a very simple approach. The potential buyer makes a signed offer, with any conditions they may choose to apply (financing, surgery etc). The seller can then do one of the things.

Accept – they sign the offer and it becomes legally binding

Reject – walk away

Counter – submit a signed counter offer – usually ATA higher price and possibly with extra conditions.

In this case the seller has chosen to counter my offer (not unexpected). They did come down from their asking price and the price on the counter is not unreasonable, in my opinion. Once I get a chance to read it on something other than my phone (lunchtime at work tomorrow) I’ll most likely be accepting it …
