    I just got an e-mail from my new real estate agent. I got an offer on my house. I don't know how much it will be for or if we will accept it, but at least there is an offer. To make a long story short, I listed my house in November with a real estate agent who did nothing, not even bring potential buyers. After six months he begged me to sign another contract with him and when I refused he got really mad. I signed with another agent and in one week we already have an offer.

    DH couldn't keep the job he had in CA because he was alone and got sick with depresion, in part because the house wasn't selling and we couldn't move back with him. I don't blame the agent for not selling the house, because it is a bad market, but I blame him for not trying to sell.

    I will let you know what happens tonight when we get the offer.

    That's great that you have an offer, but be prepared that it will probably not be what you're expecting. We had our house on the market, cleaned of clutter, staged, etc., not overpriced but still wasn't able to sell it. We ended up doing a trade without someone in the area we wanted to move to. The house is nothing compared to our house, but it's livable and in 2-4 years we'll either build a home or put a modular home, but we do now have 80 acres instead of 4 1/2, which was worth it to us. I do hope you get what you want. Good luck.

    I don't know what to do with the 2.26 acres I have now, I can't picture 80!! I know it is my first offer and don't want to keep my hopes up too high, but for now, an offer in a week is better than nothing in six months.

    Good Luck on your offer!! Usually, if the broker/salesman thinks the offer is not in line, they will just call you on the phone and tell you. In fact, I'd probably call and ask exactly how much the offer was. That gives you a little extra time to think about it....

    Oh, I hope the offer is close to what you were wanting to get. It sounds like you finally got the right Realtor for you.

    The offer was of course, under what we expected so we gave them another offer and the agent feels will be accepted. I will find out later.

    DH is doing better. still depressed, but now that things are looking better I feel he will recover.

    Thanks for the good thoughts.
