Well, after spending four hours in our home this week the couple I mentioned earlier this week have finally decided to make an offer on the house! Yes, if you look back you will find my post in which I vent about their two hour first showing and their need for a second showing. The second showing proved to be just as long and I literally had to sit in my van with a 90 pound dog and three children in my driveway in the pouring rain for half of it Thursday night!

Saturday finally brought us an absolutely shocking low-ball offer!! I was ready to literally lose my lunch when we were presented with the number. Our realtor actually already had the paperwork ready and waiting for our counter knowing it would be a given. To make a long story short we countered, they countered and we accepted. 14 days on the market and we are a few days away from a final sale. We have to wait out the week for the inspections and their financing approval so fingers crossed by Friday it will be a done deal!

On the down side the house we were truly prepared to buy in our new location sold this past Friday!! Can you believe it? Two days ago! I keep telling myself it just wasn't meant to be and that everything happens for good reason but I can't help but be disheartened!

I am still excited to start looking for a new home...hopefully soon!

  2. Wow. You are a strong woman. I don't believe I could handle the stress of it all.
    Hopefully the worst part is over and now you can have fun searching for a new home!

  4. We're in the same boat. We sold, but the place we like has an accepted offer. We're just waiting to hear if that deal collapses or not. We'll find out tonight. I hope you find something you love as I know you can look at a million houses but unless it's just right, you don't want to bother. When is closing?
