First of all, I promise there will be a furniture project posted tomorrow!
But for tonight, I thought I’d
whine a little fill you in on the latest bump in our roller-coaster house ride!
As I mentioned on Wednesday, we decided to take our house off the market on Tuesday. Tuesday night we got a call from an agent wanting to show our house the next day, and we said, “no.” That was hard! …but it was also probably a good thing, as I have continued to have sick kids!
Thursday morning, I get a call from our real estate agent. Three weeks ago, there was a couple who made an offer on our house, but we weren’t able to come to an agreement. Apparently, they were having second thoughts. Were we still willing to talk?
After thinking about it for a while, we told them we would be willing…but that the price we had originally countered with wasn’t going to work for us. We had actually offered to sell for $2000 less than what I thought our “bottom line” should be…so I moved the price back UP to that line!
And so we waited.
When I didn’t hear anything back by noon on Friday, I figured it was a dead deal. OK, fine.
You know where this is going, right?
Friday afternoon our agent calls as says they are willing to consider it, but would we be willing to include any home furnishings for that price?
We thought about it some more, and offered to include the couch and loveseat in our family room. Quite honestly, I have wanted to replace them, and it would be nice NOT to have to haul them back up the basement stairs!
And so we waited some more!
Today our agent calls and says they want to come look at the house one more time, Monday evening. We agreed.
So…what do you think? Do you think we’re going to sell our house after all, AFTER pulling it from the market? I don’t know what to think at this point!
My husband and I spent some in a quiet, peaceful place this afternoon, thinking and praying. And the thought that came to my mind was this one:
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and He shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
And so…I will try to do just that!
Thanks for letting me vent!
