Apparently my stalking-while-giving-the-thumbs-up method worked. =)
WE SOLD OUR HOUSE!!!
Yipee!!! I'm pretty sure the trash hole sold her. Yep. I hope she knows that the scrap table does not come with the house. =/
Okay, so we tried "for sale by owner" for 2 months.. LOTS of showings, no offers. Wednesday afternoon we signed on with our realtor, two hours later we had a showing, and within 24 hours of that we had an offer. We kissed thousands of dollars away within 24 hours. Wow. BUT we have an offer, so I can't complain!!!
The only thing.. they would like the house on October 1st. We have to own the house until October 22nd (cuz of that 2-year capital gains tax thingy) but they wanted to move in Oct 1st to get the house ready for their mid-October wedding. SO we have 1 month to make our junk house livable. Or shack up at my dad's house. D told me that our bedroom would be finished, our bathroom would be usable but nowhere near finished and our kitchen would be 1/2 way to completion. The rest of the house? Not so much finished. At all. He could totally live in the house in one month. Me?? Not so sure. =/ So pops.. you may have two blondies and a fat cat as roommates for a couple of weeks!!! Bailey will be on his best behavior. Promise.
Wanna know something CRAZY? Our realtor sold us our junk house and then sold our current house. Yeah, he didn't show us our junk house (we'd already seen it and knew we wanted it) and we purchased it within days of going on the market. THEN he signs up for our current house, one of his colleagues shows the house for him for her customers, and our house sells in 1 day. Okay, this dude has NEVER shown a house for us and in less than like 4 days total, has sold us and sold for us two homes. Um, he's barely lifted a finger and made thousands of dollars from us. Is there something wrong with this picture? We are his lucky charms. Seriously.
I don't care..
WE SOLD OUR HOUSE!!
