We got an offer on the house

We got an offer on the house last night. I was a bit worried when my realtor said, "Now don't get upset and the other realtor (the realtor that showed the house) said for you not to be insulted. The offer was only 2,000 less than the amount we had set in our heads as the amount we'd def. sell it for....... Well the other realtor told my realtor (he works under her) that this is how the guy is.....he negotiates at his job. I guess the buyer is totally nervous because we're having the open house today and there are several couples coming that have been waiting to see the house but the timing wasn't right. Couples that are moving to the area and need a home before the school season begins again.

So anyway we'll make our counter offer after the open house is finished.......sometime later on tonight. In the end I think we're going to end up a minimum of 2,000 over the amount we are def. wanting.

I'm so excited I just had to share. What would be even more wonderful is if one of the people coming to the open house make an offer also and their is a bidding war and we end up getting the full asking price.

Praying everything falls into place and we sell this house and find the home we've been searching for and we can move from this one into another one.

I will say a prayer for you too Sizzlinin! Last year i sold a home . What a disaster at first. I couldnt get anyone to come look at it. It was about 7 miles from town in the country kinda. But, in the end we got exactly what we wanted for it! And it was such a relief! So, i hope everything works out just like you want! Thanks for sharing your story.

Thanks everyone!

Choc.....you know I will. All kinds of decorating thoughts are going through my mind and we haven't even found another hours :)

The open house went well according to the realtor. We didn't have a lot of people but had really good ones. The one guy thats also very interested in the house had to work so unfort. he wasn't able to make it. Oh well. Well I gotta run the realtor just pulled back into the drive and we're going to be submitting our counter offer..........oh I'm so excited!

Thanks again everyone!

We sold it!!! Well there's 2 stipulations but those won't be a problem. They want a house inspection at their expense within 15 days and to check with the zoning committee in our county to see if they can build a small garage on the back land.......the realtor who sold the property belonged on the zoning committee and he said it won't be a problem.

Thanks for your support guys.....please keep the prayers coming that it will close without any problems and that we'll find our dream home within the next week or so and the transition from moving from one to another will fall into place and be without complications.
