They should probably just take the cost of having it professionally done off of the sale price.

I was told that was tried first but not accepted due to too low of $$$

Damn, seems like a dumb thing to hold up the sale.  I would imagine you could hire a handyman to do it in a day for a few hundred bucks.

$400 was the quote I was told. I don't think it's holding anything up tho. I think the powerwash + stain option is reasonable from the seller's perspective.
Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.

I meant more on the buyer's side.  With it being a fairly cheap cosmetic issue, it's strange to me that they wouldn't take the discount.  I'd prefer to do that so I could control color/quality.

Yeah, if I were the buyer, I would be sort of pissed off if it was powerwashed/stained vs sanded down and done properly. I'd much rather have the money so I could hire it done on my end.

Getting a briefcase full of money in a couple days in exchange for refinancing to a lower interest rate.

Fun fact: in this ridiculous housing market we got two offers from lenders that involved separate appraisals. They were done two weeks apart and came out $200,000 different.

Moving twice in a year sounds terrible but otherwise congrats
