The house, she is sold (fingers crossed)!

The house has little curb appeal, our realtor instead counting on the interior spaces and the location in a good neighborhood in south Minneapoli near Minnehaha Creek and Lake Harriet to attract buyers.

We have a signed purchase agreement from the buyers, all cash offer, $30K over the listing price, no contingencies, closing on September 16! Hallelujah!

Technology has made the real estate market way more fun than it used to be. Example: take a virtual tour of the house (click on play arrow in lower left corner).

I have to say that the house never looked like that when we lived there, we never having been fond of the clean, all-white style of decorating. It was much cozier, with a royal blue Chinese rug in the living room and a brick red Chinese rug in the dining room, rosewood dining room set, teak and leather in the living room, and all knotty pine in the sun room. But the redo was undoubtedly the right thing for our realtor to do; after all, she is the professional, and it looks great. But no, we do not want to live there again, no matter how nice it looks; it was great to live there and now we like it here.

    Wonderful signed offer! You have 30 K in bonus slush funds to use to splurge and treat yourselves in a big way. Enjoy!
