I'm glad they did, because we never found anything else close to what we wanted, for anywhere near the money.
That's how we bought our house in 1994 - it had been on the market 2 years and we were the only lookers, but got an appraisal (which the realtor thought was way too low) and offered that and they took it. And then found they could not find a better one or location, so they built one in the same neighborhood and later divorced and moved away.
@N F C With the current economy here, many are selling really low just to get a sale. It is standard practice now to offer ridiculously low and hope you are desperate. So, now they know you are not going to give it away, and they likely really want it a better offer should come.
Never been to Graceland, but have always wanted to visit there - Will add the former home of N F C to the tour :)
No flea markets today, have to replenish my shabby wardrobe - need some work appropriate clothes and shoes. I hate shopping for clothing - but cannot put it off any more. Even my Hens are laughing at my attire.
Also have to get something appropriate for golf, had given it up a number of years ago, but DH and I have joined a local club and cannot wear blue jeans there:(
Gotta get going, see y'all later.
