So.. I haven't been able to post in a while. We are currently in the middle of trying to sell our house because I found one that is just perfect for us.
We have an accepted offer on the other house but no offers yet on our house (to be fair it's only been on the market since Thursday)
I feel a little sorry for the owner of the other home since she seems to have gotten some really bad advice from her real estate agent.... 2 days after she accepted our offer to purchase her house (on condition that we sell our's) she dropped the asking price on her house!? Her new starting price is almost our offer price - so she has almost no chance of getting what we have already offered her. We are trading up so first time buyers are not flocking to see her property.
We are hoping to get an offer on our house soon (in our city's hot market it's a matter of days/weeks to sell a house) We may just let the offer expire and make her a lower offer with no conditions.
OMg this real estate thing is stressful!! I've spent the past week getting our house ready - doing all the little things that I've been putting off. Not to mention a major project like mucking out the basement, de-personalizing, de-cluttering and so on. I'm glad to have so many seasons of Sell This House under my belt!
Now Thanksgiving is this weekend and I have to get ready for that.. I'm missing my FORTiness!!
