House Under Contract !


We're stunned. We got a good offer on our house literally within hours of its listing on the MLS service Friday. The buyers even offered to allow us to remain here after closing while our new home is being finished, so we worked out the details and accepted the offer.

Although the deal isn't done until the closing, we're so excited!

As if that wasn't enough, shortly after we accepted the offer another agent asked to bring clients to view the house even though we told her we had already accepted an offer. After the viewing, she called me and said if our contract fell though to call her because her clients wanted to make an offer as well. Our buyers have 10 days to do an inspection and decide whether to proceed.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow....As my SIL said (after she said Get Out and Shut Up) "It was meant to be."

You did good work getting ready and choosing your price (and being in that house in the first place)!!!

Congratulations! BTW, I gave Averill a shout-out on my blog. (Yes, I'm posting again. Must be that the BE 2.0 is almost upon us and I'm feeling the need to be connected to all of you.)

Wow ... sounds like when we sold our place. First day on view and in MLS, bingo ... full price offer.

Of course, that was 3 years ago, that happening today is just extraordinary !!
