Negotiating inspection issues...
We still like the house, and figure this can all be dealt with. The seller has said they're willing to work with us on this. Assuming total cost is in the $15,000, how much would you expect to try to knock off the agreed upon price? We paid very close to list price, and thought we got a decent but not "outstanding" deal. But we swooped on it, and got the deal locked up before the listing had been on the realtors' websites more than 24 hours. Based on the interest, it would likely have gone into multiple offers the next day, and our realtor figures that might have gone for $10k above list (which is why we acted fast to lock it up). So if we go too hard-core on it, we risk the seller saying "Screw that, we'll just put it back on the market". They do, however, now have to disclose the electrical issue, which they claim to have not known about.
