Last week (aaaagh!) I got a first deposit check and an offer. That day we countered and the buyer's agent countered our counter verbally with a price we will accept. My seller is excited to be done and anxious to drive out of state to make an offer on another place. But we still don't have the final paperwork back. It has been a long....hot....hot....hot summer here in Greater Philadelphia, and the showings have been few and far between. Low and behold, after a long, long showings drought, 3 other buyers called for appointments. My seller dragged her feet about OK-ing the showings. I joked....I cajoled....I twisted her arm: It is not over til it is over, I told her. She reluctantly agreed. The showings are scheduled as the wait continues for the final paperwork. There seems to be a good reason for the delays. I truly believe that paperwork is in the works...but the showings must go on!
