Counteroffer on the table for the condo. Seller met me halfway between his asking price and my offer, but going to try to bring it down a tad by having him pick up my closing costs to account for the fact that we can't go through my title company to get the deal done.
Here's hoping. Truth be told though, if they say no at picking up my closing costs, I'll just fold and accept their counteroffer. Aside from being five minutes further drive than I was initially looking and having one bathroom instead of two, it's exactly what I want in a place right now. Not going to let a grand or two block that when we're talking about over a hundred grand overall price range.
Was offered a promotion at work, but I am slightly hesitant because I make good money as is without the added responsibility. Take the position that offers slightly more to start with of course more room for advancement, or stay in the more comfortable position where I can do the job and fade into the crowd? It's a tough call for me, and I know that's stupid. It feels like the ambition gene alluded me.
It comes down to your personal comfort and desire here.. If you aren't comfortable taking on the increased role and all that goes with it then it is best to not accept
They will understand likely and it shouldn't effect you negatively
True, they've made it clear that there would be no hard feelings if I didn't accept. Just can't escape the feeling that I should do it. Doesn't help that family and friends have all said I need to. But it is my decision and right now I think I'm leaning towards declining.
