  • #2 is really good — when we bought our condo, we pushed for a 30 day close and the seller had to pay the special assessment to the HOA so we were free & clear. We covered the inspection though, and only requested a few minor repairs prior to move in. We wrote into the offer some of the furniture that was specific to the space, and we offered substantial earnest money to assure the seller that we wouldn’t be backing out, which the article doesn’t discuss but was an important part of our negotiations.
