Spit, spit, spit, sign of horns

February 24, 2014

There were five offers (!!!) on the house, all above asking price.

We accepted the best one last night, and I floated a foot above the ground all day long.

I dare not go into detail, or even celebrate too much (there is still, after all, the inspection to get through)–but oh, my god, to have this behind us? It’s a bigger milestone, in several ways, than the actual divorce.

If everything goes according to plan, we close in a month.

    Yeah! I thought about you all weekend. You see, good luck happens.

    I swear, it was the tenants’ posh Pinterest-esque furniture and accessories that did the trick. (lowering the price by several tens of thousands of dollars didn’t hurt, either.) I am knocking wood with knuckle-splitting fervor….

    Congratulations on the offers! So much of what sells houses is the ratio of supply and demand–I’m glad it was in your favor this time!

      Yes, there aren’t many houses at all in our house’s price range on the market in my town right now at all….and I think February buyers are serious. Who knows! who knows. I’m still afraid to talk about it.
