Praise the Lord--the House is SOLD!!!

We rejoice in the grace of God, poured upon our lives!
Loving kindness has come to us because of Jesus Christ!

When I heard these words in a pre-service song at church, it was so meaningful to me. Yesterday, after a whirlwind of activity this past week, we signed the paperwork to officially sell our former home. This comes almost 16 months after listing.

We had an offer early in the week, but the day that offer came in, two other agents requested a disclosure (meaning an offer might be in the works). We got a second offer, and the next day the third offer came in. After several days of negotiating back and forth, we were on the way to sign the paperwork for the 2nd offer when the 3rd offer made one more last ditch effort for the house. He is waiving any findings on the inspection as long as we put a warranty on the house. He also had less concessions so we ended up on a better footing. The other good news of the week is that the bank will work with us to cover the shortfall in the sale and we'll be able to pay it over time instead of in a lump sum.

As of July 15th, we will no longer own that ex-house. Hooray!!! We had the opportunity to meet the buyer and he is a nice young man. He's a first time home buyer and eager to get moved in and settled.

God is good all the time---and all the time, God is good!!
