Thursday afternoon we had our first viewing ... a very nice young couple with 2 children. They were here for quite some time but did not appear to be too interested. While they were looking around the house, their realtor came out on the porch & told me they are desperate to find a place because their home has sold & the closing is in 2 weeks. I was surprised that she told me that. Anyway, our realtor called yesterday afternoon & told me that their realtor called & indicated to him that they were seriously thinking about putting in an offer. This morning he called to tell me they did make one & how much it is. We have until Monday afternoon to accept or counter. He said that we don't have to accept the first offer given to us because he knows the house is going to generate a great deal of interest. The offer is on the low side but of course people almost always offer less than they think a homeowner will accept realizing that a counter offer will probably be made. If we do end up signing a contract with these people, they want us out of here on June 14th ... thus the Yikes! We will really have to scramble!
Please pray that we do the smart thing : ) Also please pray that if a contract is made that it will go through & that the perfect house will be waiting for us to rent it when we need it.
Thank you : )
