Yep, the open house proved a winner and we accepted an offer that afternoon. YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEE…it went to the first guy who made the offer on Thursday, Mr P, but becase we had 4 other offers (in particular a very pushy lady Mrs X) the price went up another $6K. In the end we were happy with Mr P’s offer and accepted that, but Mrs X kept calling our agent with increments of $200 in her desperation to win. She was not a happy camper when we told her “no” and poor agent Bob has had enough of her whingeing 😉
But we are thrilled, Mr P has paid his holding deposit and we out of here in 4 weeks time. What a relief and I am still shocked that it went so fast and with so many offers. I knew it was a gorgeous home, but you never can tell what other people want!
We exchange contracts and make our deposit tomorrow on the house we bought, so hopefuly we can get in there before the end of this month to repaint and recarpet. I’m already dreaming of wooden venetions and french doors in the kitchen, but that might have to wait!!
I saw The DaVinci Code yesterday with Mum and Lisa and loved it. The book was better, but isn’t that always the way!!
