We sold it!

How can this be? In three (3) days?
No joke, no April really happened. We essential got 99% of our asking price. I say 'essentially' because we were prepared to pay closing costs, but the buyer is paying closing costs.

It happened fast.
  • Friday - listed the house, had 4 buyers and agents come by to see it
  • Saturday - had 4 more buyers and agents
  • Sunday - had an Open House and 12 buyers and agents came by
By 9PM we had two offers. One was a lowball number, the other was a very good contract.

The buyer is very amenable to us picking a closing date (mid May?) and renting the house back to them until the end of the month.
Wow - this gives us more options and we will be able to move from the house into the RV.

And--Last Friday we emailed the owner of the 2007 Allegro Bus in Virginia Beach and he still has it available. That may work out as well.

We stayed up late talking about the timing and when to close and about a thousand other things. We are grateful, ecstatic, thankful, elated, sobered, humbled.

At 11:54 PM I was still awake.

The story continues. We will keep you posted.
