Default Writing seller a letter?

We think the seller of the house we are trying to get is being BS'ed around by his lawyer and/or agent. We thought it might be a good idea to write the seller a letter expressing our want. He will not budge on the price of the house one cent so far and has been for sale for almost 1 year.

Anyone done this before? Our agents aren't getting anywhere with this deal.

Some people are too hard headed. You can show them what is selling that is comparable to their property and they do not care. A real estate agent makes no money until the property sells.

Hello DukeFan:
It could be the seller has to pay off a high mortgage on the house and can't sell for less. Or a thousand other reasons. Have they not made you a counter-offer?
Being on the market for a year lets them know they won't get their asking price. A good professional Realtor should be able to advise you and/or the seller and bring the two of you together.
Glenn

True glennjanie, but some people are just difficult to deal with and you can't make them see the facts.
