Happily Ever After

Happy Day! I get to see a family move closer to their goal by closing on the sale of their first home today. They are moving to Louisiana to be closer to work and family. I know they are looking forward to this new chapter in their lives.

A few short weeks ago, Lorie (the seller) called me. She told me that they were ready to get on with their lives and wished their home would sell soon. Their house had been on the market for awhile and they were growing tired of making it available for showings.

Sometimes you need to be careful of what you ask for. The offer they received the following day was a good one and the purchaser wanted to close in just three weeks. Anxiety, panic, and other emotions emerged. I’m sure that day Shane and Lorie were feeling a bit overwhelmed. After all, they were planning to move out of state and hadn’t identified a home to purchase yet. What was an idea or a dream was rapidly turning into reality.

After some negotiation on closing and possession dates, the couple was off shopping for their new home. Upon their return, it was great to hear that the trip was successful and they were all set to purchase their new home. Listening to the details, I could detect excitement and anticipation in their voices.

We never really know what the outcome of selling a house will be. However, I’ve learned that, if you have faith, the pieces fall together like a well thought out plan. I love it when I hear people say “I’m so glad it ended up working out this way”. We all love a happy ending…
