We’ve Sold The House - January 10, 2012

Jan 9, 2012 --  It was an exciting day!!

We were at Silver Springs State Park in Florida
with our friends Sherry and David. 

We fixed a nice pancake breakfast, 
more like a brunch around 10:30.

31 - Breakfast group


While we were eating,
our realtor called with a solid offer on the house. 
32 - Bill gets offer and counters
We submitted a counter offer
and then
the four of us headed off to kayak the Silver River!!


The kayak trip was wonderful
and
we will write about it in a future blog.


Right now,
I need to tell you what happened on our way back to the campground….

I got the call that our counter offer was accepted!!30 - Bill accepting house offer
Deal done…House sold!!!

It only took us
19 month, 3 realtors and the right buyer!!

We are thrilled and excited!!!!

TIME  TO  CELEBRATE :o))))
