Real Estate Update

We had the meeting today with the Thurston Howell type (read yesterday's post if you don't know what I'm talking about!)
and I guess it went pretty well?

He was a very nice man, but I was so terrified Pickle was going to break/ruin something that I had a hard time concentrating. There was a porcelain doll from the 1800s in plain sight--not a good toy for Pickle! Then at one point she flew into a rage because she couldn't stack the coasters on the coffee table to her liking. Also, there were a lot of chocolate cookies being served and I had visions of chocolate smears on his furniture and carpets! That didn't happen...I don't think?? At least I hope!

So we had a nice talk--Mr. Howell and Don have a lot in common--they went to the same schools for college and graduate school! Then he gave us a nice little tour around the house.

We didn't talk any business but I get the sense that he definitely wants more than we're asking and I don't know if he'll agree to our price. I will call the realtor tomorrow and try to find out what he's thinking.

So please keep crossing your fingers for us--I would love to get this done!!
Oh, and apparently Gooser really wants the other house. As soon as we got home he made this sign:
And I had to stop him from going outside and displaying it on our lawn!

Gooser is tooo funny!!! I hope everything works out for your family. If it is meant to be...then you will get it. If not, maybe you dodged a bullet and something even better will come along. Ok, so that is what I told myself when I was getting my house....it made me feel a little better.....

Guess what? Z picked your name for the Pay It Forward!!! :)

I feel that way when I go anywhere with Sophie. At what point do you stop having to watch their every move?

Good luck with the house!!

Jo-Jo said...

Oh I do hope you get it!

Becky said...

Gooser is so cute with his sign. Maybe he could help in nogatiations. (I know I must of spelled that terribly wrong..sorry!) How could you say no to that face?

Lori said...

Whew. I was sure he was going to demand Pickle as payment. And that would be weird.

If you put Gooser out front holding that sign you'll get offers out the yin-yang!

That sign is surely going to do the trick-LOL! I'd pull over!

Yankee Girl said...

I'm in the process of moving and can relate. It's hard when you want something so badly and it takes so long to get there. I hope it all works out for you and your family.
