Holding the line

Just got an email from our real estate agent. Of course, the buyer is not satisfied with getting the house for well below market. He's asking for thousands of dollars in concessions for mostly petty things, saying, oh but we're not asking for thousands in repairs for other things like "windows painted shut" (it was built in 1921!) and "inoperable fireplaces" (they're ornamental, always have been, it's the style). But none of what they're asking for is really necessary.

So, in a word: NO!

We'll see what my wife has to say. But I feel that we've already conceded way more than we should have in taking a price significantly lower than we wanted. Let them walk! I've got other charities, really!
