Selling my house

Right at the tail end of my first week in Minneapolis, I got an offer on my house.

It all basically happened the first day it truly went to market.  Technically it was on the market a few days prior, but the home guide had just come out and all the MLS agents had just gotten all the specs.  And within one day, it was shown and an offer was made (only about 1000 less than asking price).  I accepted, earnest money was put down, and the ball started rolling.

Evidently the house was priced appropriately for the market, huh?

Now I am a pessimist; I’m what you would call a “glass?  why bother with the glass when you know the water is just gonna evaporate to nothing anyway” type guy.  So I’ve been stressing about the home inspection and whether the buyers would back out or something.

Inspection is done, I have to come up with a bit more money at closing to cover some repairs- and I need to work on my heat pump.  I was anticipating the heat pump thing, so even though it sucks, it was not out of the blue.  But other than that, I think the sale is a done deal.

That and the buyers are hoping that I finish the HVAC thing quickly, because they want to close early. 

Now I’m not a smart man, but I’m guessing that closing early is a good thing.  And it will mean fewer double payments for me.  Not to mention that my last tether to North Carolina will be severed.

Keep your finger’s crossed.

    Wow, you are very lucky considering how the market is now.
    Congrats. I think you made out rather nicely.

    Congratulations CB! Great news. All your work to get the house ready paid off. 🙂

    Good for you CB! I hope you made a decent profit of the sale of your home to at least make up for the reimbursement screwing over you got from your new employer. And, early closings are a good thing.

    Now, where’s my piece of the pie bee-otch?

    Congrats CB! Like Jason said it’s a pretty weak market right now so I’d say you lucked out. And they only beat you down a grand! Woooo hoooo! I hope this is an omen and things will start going a lot better now that you’re out of N.C.

    Good to see you have a quick sale. No more North Carolina!

    Good luck with your construction worker.

    I’ll have my fingers crossed all goes well with the sale. Luckily, the NC housing market isn’t as bad as the rest of the country.

    I love Minneapolis, but this just hasn’t been their best summer. All I can say is don’t take too much time in the men’s room, avoid the temptation to pick up that piece of toilet paper on the stall’s floor (yes, I know that one will take great will power) and stay off the bridges. However, from what I can tell they’ve got some pretty fine looking policemen.

    Congrats on the pending sale, esp in today’s market!

    BTW – Moving expenses are tax deductible for work related moves. And expenses above your re-reimbursement should be noted on your 1040 long form. Just make sure you have receipts to back up.

    Also and closing costs on the sale of your home is also deductible. It will help to offset any capitol gains (if any) that may apply.

    Good luck again!
