We finished the wood laminate flooring in the music room over the weekend and finished up the trim on Tuesday evening. We have shown the house several times in our varying degrees of work and now, we have an offer. We got it late last night. It is not a great offer. They came down 5,000 and want us to pay over 3,000 in closing costs. So really we would be coming down over 8,000 and then we would have to bring 6,500 to closing to get out of the house. There is no way in this world that we can come up with that kind of money. We also have to think about closing costs on our other house. So, we counter-offered and we will find out today if they are willing to accept the offer. IF they do, that will give us 30 days to move and get our other house. On top of that, dh and I are leaving to volunteer at a camp for foster kids for a week at the beginning of August! Everything could be happening all at once.
I guess we will see if they accept the counter-offer and we will take it from there.
