In my post ‘IN 45 MINUTES‘, I concluded with the following –
The showing came and stayed about 20 minutes and then left.
Did anything come out of the showing?
No offer, but the response from the realtor is the people did like the house and the neighborhood.
Will there be a call today?
In today’s post, I begin with the following –
I received quite a few comments on that post that I would like to share –
As you can see, I received some very optimistic and positive comments sending good luck my way.
Within a couple of hours of the last comment, guess what? Yes, you are correct – we received another call! It is Friday evening and the call comes in for a showing on Saturday from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM. This gave us plenty of time to have the home ‘show-ready’. We were up bright and early with a few preparations to take care of and 11:15 AM we had the house ready to show. There is a knock on the door and it is the realtor showing the house and indicates they are early, no problem; we grab our cell phones and Roxy (our dog) and get into the truck and leave. The realtor and her clients are standing on the sidewalk and we wave as we drive by. Nice younger couple with a young daughter; they wave back and smile.
Gary and I drive around a bit and then park in our usually spot across the main street from our small cul-de-sac. 20 minutes pass, that is a good sign – 30 minutes pass, they must like the house; 40 minutes, then 50 minutes, then 1 hour passes. The cars then leave the cul-de-sac and we proceed back to our house. 1 hour; they must really like the house.
The anticipation grows as Gary and I talk about the possible outcome of this most recent showing. We are hopeful they liked the home and an offer will soon follow. Later in the evening we receive feedback from the showing agent –
‘My clients are considering their options in Lake Highlands and Richardson over the Memorial Day weekend. They are interested in this lovely home.’
Yes, this is very good feedback! Now the waiting begins. What will their decision be? When will the decision be made? Will we receive an offer?
We will have to wait a few days.
I wrote this post on Sunday morning and am publishing today. It has been a few days now since that very good feedback.
The waiting continues.
