More on selling the house...

So, there really isn't much more to tell, except that we're still waiting. The people who were potentially interested in making an offer have decided to look at more foreclosures in a lower price bracket. So, we're pretty much back where we started. It's possible, though, that these buyers will discover that there isn't much to be found as far as foreclosures unless they happen to be at the right place at the right time--and they find a NICE home that still has appliances, doorknobs, and other somewhat important features--like a working toilet or two. :) Their realtor has assured our agent that he will keep tabs on our home and represent it to his clients if the situation presents itself.

We're obviously competing in a difficult market right now. 50% of all the homes sold in our area in the past year were foreclosures (compared with about 11% in the greater Twin Cities). We DO feel so blessed to have a wonderful home to live in--and one that we will take pride in passing along to the right buyer. To be even considering building our home in an economy that has been so difficult for so many is really a miracle in itself.

We continue to pray for God's Providence in this and all situations! We hope you'll do the same. We'll let you know if there is more news to share.
