Finally sold our house!

It's been on the market for almost 2 years, and we'd had only 1 showing exactly a year ago. Well, those same people who looked at it last December came back to look at the house again this week, and gave us a full price offer..which we accepted, of course!! Our new house will be done May 1, so the timing couldn't have been more perfect! Whew!

The "lookers" must have learned that your place had the least negatives and the fairest price.
One year of looking is not bad,, I'm at year 4...too fussy, too tight...

The offer to purchase states we will close by February 1. They agree to let us rent back until we move into the new house. Yes, absolutely the best Christmas present. We are very lucky, but they are getting a great house!

Joyce, is it fair for me to assume your price had been reduced from when your buyers first saw it a year ago?

Good question.

WOW...I'd really love to get that for my Christmas gift!
Congrats...and I hope everything goes through for you and you can move into your new home soon.

(keeping fingers crossed for the rest of you--and me-- who have your house on the market!)

Yes, we did reduce our price about a year ago. DH and I didn't agree with the original asking price which I thought too high. I think it sold at a fair price, and we are able to put a nice chunk of change in our pocket. Very good way to start the new year.
