Accepted Offer

I’m almost afraid to post this…but we have accepted an offer on our house! We got our full asking price (we had just reduced the price) but the buyer asked for closing costs, so after we figured that in we sold for a little less than asking. I think the ladies that came to my GTG must have been a good luck charm! We had 4 showings back to back on Sunday and our realtor managed to schedule the eventual buyers last so that they would see all the other realtor cards on the table (they were coming back for a 3rd viewing, so we felt it a good bet they were a little interested).

We have not been through the inspection process yet, but I understand that should happen rather quickly – like within the next week. I won’t really breathe easy that the sale is “for sure” until that process is over. Blame it on watching too much HGTV or whatever. We aren’t expecting anything to come up, but I guess you just never know. I know our retaining walls in the back are old and such, but they don’t pose a safety hazard or a drainage problem, so we are hoping that won’t be an issue. So we are cautiously optimistic, yet afraid to trust this is it, given how the earlier offer fell through.

I’ve already had a question or two on facebook about what houses we have in mind for moving to… we have about 4 on our short list. Provided the inspection goes well and we can actually start thinking about buying one of them, I’ll post links so you can all play along like on House Hunters! Ha.
