Take a deep breath with me, folks. Life just got very real.
We have signed a contract to sell our home. It really happened, and we're SO excited!
The offer came around 1:30 p.m. yesterday, followed by an “emergency” house showing and a second offer from another couple. (Both buyers are from Saturday's open house...what a turnaround!) After carefully reviewing both offers, we opted to go with the first, since they are much better qualified financially. At 7:30 last night, we countered the offer with slight modifications and waited anxiously until 10:00 this morning when their agent confirmed their acceptance. The proverbial ball we have been waiting for is now rolling.
If all goes according to plan (knock on wood), we will close May 30. This is a “long close,” as our agent calls it, but I’m glad for it. We’ll have plenty of time to find a new place for ourselves, Zach will get to (nearly) finish school and his tee-ball season, and I’ll have a bit more time to emotionally process our departure. [Insert another deep breath.]
Pretty soon the to-do list and the good-bye list will get very overwhelming, but today, for now, I am reveling in the warmth and comfort of answered prayers. Thanks to all for your love and support...we have felt it every step of the way.
