I mentioned last night that I had heard from the Real Estate Agent.
Well, he rang mid afternoon to let me know there were 2 interested parties in our home.
Then he rang again at dinnertime to say one of them were wanting to come back for a 2nd viewing, and they put their home on the market yesterday. Which means they are VERY keen on our home!!!
Of course, it follows that they will have to sell their home in order to buy ours, but we are in the same position with what we want to buy down in Hamilton. We have to sell here first.
So, while trying not to get too excited... I AM!
I have all day to get the house in tip top shape again, which won't take long cos it's already super tidy. lol The viewing isn't until after 5 pm, it's going to be a LONG day for me.
The kids and I will take the dogs out to the Botanic Gardens while these people have their 2nd viewing.
Now.... I also got some lovely mail yesterday:
Kayola does custom 'doodles', so I asked her to do a small one for me. I left it up to her what she painted, this is what she did:
ABOVE: isn't she so clever! It's so ME! I love the words she used, "Here sits the Queen", and "Never Stop Dreaming". And of course she had to show 'me' drinking Diet Coke... at the beach.
ABOVE: Kayola also sent over a lovely Arizona cookbook, postcards and a gift pack of 5 of her beautiful cards too! I was ever so spoilt.
ABOVE: My new painting is already hanging in my bedroom, where I can see it all the time.
Right, I'm going to make my house PERFECT again.... nervous, excited, nervous.... and ONLY 11 hours until the people arrive for a 2nd viewing! ... eeekkkkk!
I'm hoping for an 'unconditional' offer too! Of course.
If it's only 'conditional' on them selling their home first, they might just lose it, as EVERYONE is so certain our home will go super fast.
I won't hold my breath ... but I'm hopeful they are going to the bank to get finance NOW!
I've woken up and am right into getting all the beds make, bathrooms spic 'n' span... all the usual palaver.
My phone is playing up. I might have to pop down to Telecom and see why. I can't LIVE without me mobile!
My stupid phone perked up and went again, so I don't have to replace it right now. Yaaaa.
I went down to the mall and got a few groceries then came home and had lunch.
Now I'm 90% ready. Just have to vacum and put the dogs in the car at the last minute. This was really easy today, having them coming so late in the day means I can just meander through the jobs.
After they have been and gone we are going to Karl's Junior for dinner, so I don't even have to worry about cooking dinner. Excellent.
Well... the viewers were in the house for over half an hour. And after they left the Real Estate guy rang and said would we be home around 7.30, as he would be calling around.
Hmmmm.... sounds promising.
It's so... tension filled.
The Real Estate guys arrived at 7.30 tonight with not ONE, but TWO offers for our house!!!
We accepted the highest one (as ya would) and it should go unconditional by Monday at 5pm! (subject to a Builder's report)
We are gobsmacked! On the market for exactly one week, one Open Home and we are virtually sold!
We are on cloud nine.
Saturday we shall be going to Hamilton to look at a few more houses, and perhaps make an offer on one.
So, so excited... how lucky can you be?
End of Day: wonder if I will sleep for the next 5 nights?
Off to sit and let it sink in.
