The house I have under contract was listed at $89,900, but I offered $96,040 because there were several other offers and I really wanted the house. The seller accepted my offer and will be covering $2885.00 of closing costs (3%).
I'm a little bit confused in my scenario in regards to appraisal (which I have not completed yet, but will next week). If the appraisal comes back at, let's say $93,000, do I have to ask the seller to drop the price to $93,000 (plus he still pays the 3% closing)? Or.... how does that work?
What if it's appraised under his asking price?

the negotiations start over.
expect them to ask you to cover as much of the difference as you expect from them.....
and they might just say $93k and NO CLOSING COSTS
