We received some bad news at the end of last week. We had an offer from a buyer who we had met during the time when we had been 'for sale by owner.' No brokers involved, cash offer! Stroke of amazing luck in the this seriously abysmal real estate market.
All we needed were a few details and our lawyer could draw up the contract and Get The Place Sold! Huge sigh of relief.
. . . When the buyer wrote to say that the previous apartment she'd made an offer on (a one bedroom) was now available, and she was taking it.
