Our First Offer

Well, didn't take long to find a buyer for our house. We posted on Friday that our house was up for sale. On Sunday, we had a call from an interested couple who wanted to view the house. We called them back and they wanted to see it that day...so, they came. The man was very interested in the media room, and also wanted to make sure there was room in the bedroom for his flat panel tv...the woman loved the view out the bedroom and the way it was decorated. They seemed to really like the house. We let them ask us questions, which they did, and we answered honestly about the plumbing and such. They called us about 30 or 45 minutes after they left telling us that they wanted to make an offer, they just weren't sure how to go about it since it's "by owner", so we said "GREAT" and started calling around to people that may be able to tell us what paperwork we needed. We had friends over for the day, and one of their moms was a real estate agent, and she was able to help us with that. So, the interested couple sent us their pre-approval letter via email, and we faxed them copies of a buying agreement. Looks like things are on the move. It's possible that this deal isn't for us, but we look at this as encouragement for the Lord. So, keep the legal matters in your prayers. We are so blessed to have so many loved ones with good experience we can learn from.

Excellent!! That's great news - and it doesn't surprise me. Your house has been taken care of so well and looks great inside and out. Even if your first buyers back down, I'm sure you'll have others backed up waiting to buy it.
