An Offer!

We just heard from our real estate agent. The lady who had narrowed her shopping down to our house and a fixer-upper got a wee bit nervous when she realized that there was a Realtor's Open House at our home today which brought in a lot of traffic.

And so (drum roll, please), she called and cancelled the appointment she had with the contractor to look at the other house and is in the real estate office right now putting together an offer.


Which is fabulous news!

Unless, of course, she decides that she really wants a ridiculous bargain and offers less than we can afford to accept. (We're already selling the house for $15,000 less than we paid for it five years ago and still have to get together a down payment for the new house.)

When she looked at the house for the first time 6 weeks ago, it was higher priced than it is now, so hopefully she will remember that little bit of information when she puts together the offer.


We're so excited! We should hear something for sure later today, or by Monday at the latest.

I am praying, Becky... I know God's plan is going to all make sense SOME day. But oh, how I want it to all come together for you NOW! *sigh* Sending warm hugs and a plethora of prayers....

Hope the offer is a good one. You are so lucky that your house is only worth $15,000 less than 5 years ago. The market here in AZ tanked, our house is worth more than $100,000 less than it did 5 years ago. Praying you have a sold house by the end of the weekend.

Yippie! Hoping she comes back with a fair price that will work for you. By the way, my favorite post far was about the horse tour. I may be biased since I was there with the Smith's.

Great news; hope she offers you an acceptable price and that selling/buying houses in the US is a lot quicker than in the UK (we sold our house in October last year, moved into our new one on 5th Feb this year...sigh!
