The wife and I have been throwing/kicking/batting around the idea of listing our house and purchasing another one. Yea, I know that talk is cheap.

Well, I finally got my a$$ in gear and called a realtor. He goes to our church and was highly recommended by several people.

They, yes there was a pair of them, showed up last evening to talk things over. I was very impressed with their presentation and the way they handled themselves. They did bring up the point that we get 2 for the price of 1.

They asked what I thought I could get for the house. I told them the guy next door just sold and got $150,000 and I figured that is about what I could get.

They proceeded to show me the 10-page comparative market analysis they had already prepared. Showing us the properties in and around the area that have sold in the last 2 months. Highlighting the good things about my place and pointing out the few items I need to fix (which can all be fixed in a single weekend). :p

Their average listing/selling time is 39 days. They list their houses at realistic prices to sell in a reasonable time and get the seller the best selling price.

They talked a little more and then told us the listing price we needed to put on our house. They came in with a price of $170,000. Oh yeah. :D

I was told the major selling factor would be the new laminate floors that I just installed myself last year.

And yes, there is a lock box hanging on the front door. The house officially goes on the market today.

Now I need to really start packing up stuff and getting this place a little un-cluttered. :0



Now for the contest.

Guess the date and time that I am given an offer that I accept. This is not the time that I accept the offer, but the time the offer is presented to me.

Anyone can make a guess, contest is open to all
One guess per person, no editing of posts.
Closest guess to the date and time without going over wins.

Winner will get a nice little sampler. ;)

Thanks for the contest

I wish you luck on the sale. If you need mortgage info for the new house just ask I know a few great mortgage reps in FL. Or if you have any questions about a mortgage you can ask me I no longer am on the sales side so I have nothing to gain so I will give honest advise.

You'll get the magic offer on or before June 29th, 1500 hrs.....:cool:

Thanks for the contest, and the very best of luck with the house...!!

Oh and by the way . . . that would not even get you a shanty crack house infested with rats here in CA. I bought my house over 3 years ago for 220,000.00 and it was built in the 1950's. It is just under 1500 sq. ft. on a fairly good sized lot. Now comps in my area are selling for 360,000.00!!! Can you beleive that!

Good luck on the sale/purchase. We are looking into doing the same as well. When we get more seriious I think I will do the same contest. :thumbs:
