Done deal

Pending escrow, we've got a house!

I know I haven't posted about it much, but that's because it has been BEYOND stressful, including some nasty negotiations, 7 counteroffers, and a lot of threats to walk away from the deal.

Here's hoping the rest of the deal goes smoother than the contract negotiations.

Escrow opens tomorrow!

I had a realtor tell me once that its a good deal when everyone thinks they got screwed. The seller thinks they sold too low, the buyer thinks they paid too much. I'd think it would be if everyone was happy, but... eh, that's the flip side.

Congrats on the house!

I'm sorry you had such a horrid time of it. You know the old show business saying... bad dress rehearsal, great performance. Let's hope the same holds true here... bad negotiations, great move in.

Once you get in there and put your mark on the place, I'm sure you will love it!

Now that I've gotten into Real Estate, I know how stressful those situations can be. What you need is a professional agent to take the pressure off, a reliable lending company to not screw things up, and a decent sized bottle of gin to have fun through it all. ;^)

Oh yeah... CONGRATS!

Yay! I was getting tired of walking around with all my fingers and toes crossed. (Although I'll keep them crossed a little longer if you think it will help!)

I trust, young lady, that you will post pictures soon?

Oh, and I remember the black hole that is escrow. I feel for you folks.
