Serendipity Sundays ~ 8200 Neely Drive #130 ~ Back Under Contract!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

Saturday afternoon while I was volunteering at “Gavin’s Gift of Grace Golf tournament,” on the third hole handing out bags of popcorn and cold water, I received a text from a buyer’s agent: “The executed contract is in your inbox.”

I received an offer very late Friday night and talked to my seller Saturday morning. A small counter was made and turned the counter around to the agent before our Saturday open house. I received word the buyers agreed and signed off later in the afternoon. Sometimes the second time is the charm; so options begin and an inspection is scheduled!

Sometimes it takes patience and persistence to facilitate a transaction. It's what we do for our sellers...every time! This is why they hire us...for results!

While the original offer may have had all feeling good, it was not the right fit and hopefully that is resolved with the new offer.

Yes not surprising, that buyers step out of a deal, I blame it on the headlines and the interest rates, glad you have it back in Escrow, lucky second buyer, Endre

It is indeed serendipitous that you were out doing something for the good of others when you received notice that the home went back under contract.
