We sold the house last night!!!
The crappy low ball offer folk came back with a great deal..and a fast possession date of Sept 4th so we are starting to move this weekend. Cole and I will spend today starting to pack light stuff and organize the rest, I need to sneak in a garage sale soon to purge some stuff!
I have tried over the years to embrace real estate and the "game" you need to play. No luck though. I realized last night that I truly HATE negotiating. We ended up $4k below our asking price and they ended up $25k above what they initially wanted to pay. Why could we have not just laid it all out on day one and avoided the back and forth? Tim on the other hand LOVES the "game" he thrives on it...likes the risk of the buyers walking away.....stressing his wife out!! Why is it he is always right though? If he left buying and selling homes to me we would never make any money, I would take the first offer just to avoid any conflict!
In the end, it was obvious that this family loved and wanted our home and that makes me feel A OK...I even threw in my front load washer and dryer in the deal... partly because they wanted them..but mostly because it means that I...
GET NEW ONES!!!
So where to even start looking for new front loads? You guys!
Let me know what to get. I had the Whirlpool Duets and they had mold issues if I did not leave the door open on the washer between loads. NO THANKS...
House #5 in 9 years of marriage...I can only imagine how many more "games" I will have to endure in my lifetime.
