We Have A Buyer!!

Well folks, two weeks and one day after the sign went up, we are going to be able to put a Sale Pending up on the sign. Every person who came through wanted the house. One gal gave us a bid but it was waaayyy under what we wanted and she wouldn't budge. Another gal wanted it and had the financing but lost her job. Another liked it but didn't feel she could do the necessary work that is needed to update it. But her nephew came through on Tuesday and gave us a low offer yesterday. We countered and he wanted to come through again last night. Our agent called this morning and said that he was still waiting to hear from him. Late this afternoon, he called back and said that he had been working all afternoon on this. The guy made an offer and Greg said we were as low as we could go, so he made a little higher offer and Greg said no. Finally the guy got the message and took our offer. So---if all goes well, closing is August 14th and we are out of here Sept. 12th. In between now and then, we have a lot to do. We will be having an auction to get rid of most of our stuff so that is next on the agenda. I can't believe that it only took two weeks. I don't think Greg does either. All I can say is "Thank you St. Joseph"!!!

The little guy will go back to Florida with us and hopefully his good vibes will protect our house down there from any and all hurricanes!!
