    Offer to purchase question

    @RonSwanson wow you’ve given me so much valuable information, I have to admit though that I’ve probably played my cards too open.

    Offer to purchase question

    How long can/should I go when offering to buy a house?

    Thank you, this is informative. I have done the pre-qualification already so that’s not an issue. Is it not possible to have something like “the interest rate has to be favourable” added to the OTP? Guess we have to line up a few viewings as well just in case.

    How long can/should I go when offering to buy a house?

    Lol that was a typo, actually meant to write how low can one offer :). Thank you for the advice, I will keep that in mind. I actually thought one had to be fixated on a place to know that it’s worth investing in.
