Home > SOLD!!


May 30th, 2007 at 09:56 pm

My house sold yesterday -- at the full asking price!

The first offer was $95,000, $2000 below list price. But the buyer wanted to close on the 25th of June, which I thought would be too soon for me. The last I heard my "suite" at my cousin's house would not be ready till mid-July.

So my realtor advised me to counter at full asking price, since the early close date might cause financial hardship. They accepted the counter offer within minutes. They really loved the house! My realtor said it was very unusual to get a full price offer in this market.

So I agreed, and I notified my cousin that I would have to move on the 25th. To my surprise, she said the rooms would be ready by then. So -- all I gotta do is pack up and move within the next 3 1/2 weeks!

I am happy, but also a little flabbergasted. I was expecting a long haul.

That was the cap to a day that was pretty suprising already. In the morning I got my $25 payment for my "Confessions" submission (and thank you, thank you again!). Then I got a Pinecone payment of $5. Then I went home and opened my mail to find -- finally -- a $40 check from State Farm. So money was definitely flowing in yesterday.

Last night I was too wound up to sleep, so I will turn in early tonight. I am like the walking dead today.

I've still got a lot ahead of me, but WHOO-HEE! a big step done!
