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.
