We have a contract on the house!

Friday afternoon, a couple put a semi-lowball offer on the house. We counter-offered on Saturday, and they accepted!

The end of October (they have to wait for their lease to end), we will go to closing, and there will be great rejoicing!

How did we get from listing to contract so quickly in this market without getting taken to the cleaners?

Easy! Well, not really, more like hard work!

You see, we took a gem of a house and put in the elbow grease to make it SHINE!

Then we priced it at a reasonable price point, one that lets up make a (potentially) teensy amount †

We hired a GREAT Realtor, Suzy Trotta of http://allaroundktown.com/ fame, and that was what it took!

Even in this market, a great house, at the right price, marketed right will sell. Promise!


† Depending upon the IRS' definition of what constitutes a member of the uniformed services, we may have the entire $7,500 stimulus forgiven because we sold the house due to getting orders stationing me at a location more than 50 miles from the house. If they decide that I, as a civilian Army Employee, who has orders, and military ID, etc, etc, am a member of the Uniformed services, which they define as: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, then I am golden!
