Last weekend my husband and I went thru a home that our son and his wife had viewed earlier that week. They wanted a second look and our opinion. We gave them our opinion, and they put in an offer on the home. The owners counter-offered and our son and his wife walked away. A couple of days later the seller's agent called our son's agent who basically told them if they improved their offer slightly they could close. Our son called their bluff and went in with just a little more then he originally offered. And he just called us and told us that the offer was accepted. They will move into their new home on March 7th. I have a feeling that it will come awfully quickly. They can spend the cold winter months packing and organizing. Nice way to end off the year isn't it?

Thanks, but it is actually their second home. This is a large home though. Its on a pie-shaped lot, and has 2 full bathrooms and 5 bedrooms. All of the rooms are a good size, and they have a nice sized foyer. We had a good sized foyer in our last home, and our son and his wife looked for something with that, and it wasn't easy to spot.

That's is indeed good news. Our friends have had their place on the market for a while but have now sold. However the buyer is very anxious to move in and now they have to be out on the 29th December so there won't be a lot of relaxing over Christmas for them.
