WELL, here we are 6 months later. While sitting on our couch last night, winding down – we get a phone call from “Keller Williams” at about This call after 2 showing yesterday was promising! I answer the phone – and sure enough it was Shelley; our realtor!! Yay!! Good news, right!?!?!
Her words… “Hey Katy, sorry it is so late, but I’ve got 5 offers on homes today and one of them was yours.”
ME: “No way! That’s great!! We’ll take-….”
Her: “No, Katy. I’m so sorry but it is really really low.”
I’m thinking, I don’t care…just give it to me, and we’ll take it!!!!
She continued. “They offered $104,000 plus $9,000 in closing. (long pause) that makes the offer close to $96,000.”
Me: “oh…..wow. That sucks.”
Her: “Yeah, I’m so sorry. We can counteroffer, and stay firm.”
We started our price at $124,900…and have since lowered it 3 times. We are as LOW AS WE CAN GO.
So we did, we countered….staying firm on our price. Our home is priced to sell and we can barely budge on that price.
SO…long story short – I about had a breakdown last night. I was so mad. How do people get off offering almost 20K less than the asking price. I mean, our house may be small, but it is darn cute and in great shape and worth a heck of a lot more then $96,000. Geeesh.
What has this…and is continuing to teach me?
I was so frustrated last night, I may have even cried a little because I was so mad, so confused….Then, I was comforted. I could just feel God comforting me, and telling me everything was going to be ok. We talked a little (you know me and God) And I just begged for His guidance. I have no idea if my house is going to sell. NO CLUE. I have no idea if we need to take it off the market, I have no idea if we need to just re-finance – but what I do know is that everything is going to be ok. I know that God will take care of everything – no matter what. And whatever may come is in His perfect will.
-I am still a little perterved that someone could actually TRY to offer $96 K though… I mean WHO DOES THAT?!?!?!Thanks for listening…I had to get all that out! I am going to listen to Christmas music today, to make me feel better!
