And it's off the Market

Well that was fast! After putting the house on the market Wednesday night, it had 8 showings and a great turn out at the open house. We got a lowball offer from a younger couple on Friday afternoon and we sent them a counteroffer where we stood firm on our asking price. Since we had priced it below market and there was a lot of traffic we saw no reason to accept a low offer. Well I guess they really liked it, because they found a way to pay the asking price and we signed a final offer tonight. We received another offer today as well, but it wasn't quite as good. Besides, I can relate to a young couple that really loves the house...that was us just seven years ago.

So hopefully things go smoothly and we get through closing in early April!

Wow, I'm surprised it sold so quickly. Just a sign that you could have probably gone with an even higher asking price than what you did and thus made more money. Oh well. :P At least you don't have to put up with it any longer and I'm sure you don't mind the $250K you asked for sooner than you anticipated.

WTG, girl! It just had to go quickly, you guys had it in great condition at the perfect price point. And I am an expert on this because I watch ungodly amounts of real estate reality shows on HGTV. Pop open that bubbly and celebrate, woo hoo!
