DH and I have had our house on the market since January and it's seriously seemed like we are never going to sell. Well, we finally got and an offer this morning!!! AAAAHHHHH!!!!!!
I can't explain how excited I am! It was a pretty good offer too! They offered us the full asking price, but asked for about 6% of closing costs. We'll need to negotiate on the closing costs, but I think we can work it out. My agents used all of this jargon I don't recognize when we talked this morning, but it was music to my ears just that we got an offer. We SO need to get out of this house. I mean, it's been our home for 6+ years, so there's alway part of me that will love it, but with another LO on the way, it will just be a little uncomfortable to have us all crammed in here. Plus we so want to get our kids into a neighborhood.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE send us lots of good vibes and prayers that we can make this work!!!
They want to close at the end of July which would be great because it would be after DD's birthday party and we'll know if baby #2 is a boy or girl so I can start decorating the nursery right away! YAY!!
Well, I wish I had good news, but I don't After 3 days of counters and waiting, yesterday we got the news that we are not getting a signed contract from the buyer. I cannot explain how upset I am! :bigangry: The woman was totally dragging her feet, so we should have guessed she wouldn't go through with it. And apparently this is the second house she has done this with. I think if I were her agent, I'd be short one client. What a difficult person to work with. I know it would have been the long 1 1/2 months of our lives. She would have probably freaked out over every little thing.
However, we are now even more motivated. DH and I decided to drop our asking price. Hopefully in this price bracket we will get alot more action. BUT, if that buyer thinks for one minute she can make another offer, she is sorely mistaken. :brucelee:
Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers. Keep 'em coming. We are going to get this place sold!!!
