Today I was rejected for a house. I offered $157K, he countered with $162K, and I came back with $160K, figuring to split the difference.

He apparently doesn't want to negotiate beyond his $162K. (the listing price) Now I have to decide. Do I walk away from this house, disgusted at his lack of willingness to negotiate, or do I swallow my pride, and pay the $162K tomorrow?

Guess I ought to sleep on it.
