We have a contract on the house!! Yahoo!!
And only 18 days after listing it on the MLS!
We rejected the first offer. We were told this second offer was coming and it did. And it was exactly what they said it would be. They offered more than our asking price so that we would pick up the closing costs. Cool!!
The funniest part...or saddest, I don't know...
When we told the first realtor that we had to accept another offer, she responded with "Oh crap."
How professional was that?? Can't say I'd recommend this woman.
Oh...one more thing...someone called Monday night to see the house. We told her that we had an offer and were expecting another one, but she wanted to see it anyway. She called last night to come see it again and discuss buying. We had to tell her that we just accepted an offer. She said we could call her if something fell through with the contract we have.
I'm praying that everything goes smoothly, but it's comforting to know that we would probably be able to sell it to someone else without much problem.
God is good. All the time.
He's been in control of this entire process...and if these are the people who are meant to have this house, then He will continue to work out the details!!!
