Two weeks ago we put the Lakeland house on the market again. The hope was that, as a resort location, buyers would be more interested in it during the spring. We listed the house for $414,000, since we had made lots of upgrades to the property after we took down the listing last fall. See the virtual tour here (until it gets taken down). It’s pretty darned gorgeous.
Get to the Point!
Great news! It was on the market for two weeks when we got an offer above the asking price! The prospective buyers wanted some of the furnishings on the house and decks. We agreed (easier than moving some of that stuff, for sure), and accepted the offer. We are now in the waiting period. At this time, the offer could fall through, so back-ups are being accepted.
Long-time readers of our blog may recall that we had three offers fall through on the Blue Ridge house last year. So we are not counting our housing chickens before they hatch. The buyers sound great, though, and the house is perfect for their needs. Let’s hope all the banking and lending firms agree and let this one go through!
Patience can lead to profits, perhaps?
