Wonder how long the "maybe" house-buyer is going to let us 'stew' over his offer. Although we think we have found a house we would like to buy, it is not imperative that we buy it and so we can wait for a while longer to sell our place. In the meantime, we have placed a poster of our house in the local book shop window, with a "For sale by owner" tag and a reduced price. Hopefully we will lure another prospective buyer and then have some amunition to tell the "maybe" buyer that there's "someone else interested".
The house that we might like to buy needs a bit of a tidy-up and we have found another place that is completely removated and looks much more appealing inside, though not in as good a location. So we have one up our sleeve, so to speak.
That alone makes me more comfortable in my mind and I am not stressing about Mr "Maybe" calling back with a better offer.
Oh, the trials of house selling!
We have been in this house for a long time and had forgotten all about what goes on when wanting to sell a home.
But it's all part of the life experience. Can be good fun, when you're in the right mood. (Ha, ha!)
