God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Yikes!

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   : )

Praying my friend. One of my dear friends just accepted and offer on her house on Tuesday and has to be out May 19th. She took a low offer as they just want to move on and the hassle of waiting and open houses and showings was wearing on them after only 3 weeks. Good Luck!!!!

Oh wow Shirlee! That's a big yikes!!! Is that your home by the way? It's a stunner!! I hope everything works out for you!!

Decisions, decisions. Do you accept it to have it over with and take a chance on other offers? Do you not take it to give you more time to find a place? Sounds like you need to take a trip to these areas and see what options you have for renting and storage. Quick!!

Yikes is right! If they make an offer that you can accept, you will be a busy girl!

Praying that the contract will go through and that the perfect house awaits you for renting, too. Any ideas yet where that might be?

Blessings always

Wow!! Already an other offer?? Better start packing soon! Fingers crossed you make the right decision for you x

I'm sure it will all work out, Shirlee! It is such a pretty house that I don't think you should settle for much less than your asking price... Will be thinking of you!
