We have a contract to sell our old house! We got an offer yesterday evening, and today we talked about it and made a counter offer and then they countered with a price we could feel good about, and now we are signing the paperwork. We read somewhere that the planet Mercury went direct on January 25 after being retrograde for a few weeks… according to astrologers now is the time to sign contracts and go forward with plans. I don’t know if that helped, or if it was the grace of the spirits who are guiding us through this search for greener housing. But I do know that I want to say thanks to everyone who was praying for our house sale to go well! We still have to go through inspections, and such, and the closing of the deal is tentatively scheduled for March. But tonight we feel such relief and joy. Now we can turn our attention to packing and getting ready to move.
YAY!!! And a heads up if your buyers are getting a mortgage–it takes a lot longer than 2 months these days. And it looks all the time (as in every other day toward the end, then every day till you sign the paperwork) as tho it’s going to fall apart. But mostly it’s not going to fall apart.
