Finally

 
 
Hello Everyone.
 
It's been almost two years since our home went on the market.
 
It is finally over.....
 
 
We are under contract!
 
Actually we got two contracts this week but we accepted the one
 without a contingency for their home to sale.
 
I am keeping my fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly
and we get closed by the end of May.
 
Now I have to get to work making flight reservations, calling movers,
making list...lots of list!
 
Hugs,
 
Sherry

Congratulations! I hope it all goes smoothly. Two years? You are the soul of patience...but then two offers in a week! You can't tell me God doesn't have a sense of humor ;-)

Hi Sherry,
I'm very happy to hear this. I hope that all goes well and don't get too discouraged. It takes longer to close on homes these days, which is the banks fault, but it will happen.

We successfully closed on ours Tuesday.

Congratulations.

hugs
Sissie

We're going to be in your shoes soon. Selling your house and moving is a tremendous undertaking. We've done it twice now. Congrats on the sale!

Congrats! That's wonderful news. I know the stress will now begin, but it's a good kind of stress. I wish you luck in a smooth transition. I've been hearing on the news that the real estate market is picking back up and it is now a sellers market. Guess you just proved that!

Cheers! Good things come to those who wait, or so is said. Waiting two years is waaaaaaaayyy too long in my humble book but am glad the wait is over.

Wishing you a closing date in May!
