Whose house this is I thought I knew
But that was before the contract fell through;
The deal was great, so it appeared
But they had to close first and my anxieties grew.
Passersby must think it weird
To discover the realtor’s sign disappeared
And then it was back aside the road
We won’t tell them it was us interfered.
Folks stopped to enquire, it was getting old
We couldn't say a second deal was on hold
We had to stay mum it was our secret to keep
But the counter was accepted, our house is sold.
We don’t have to show it, nor constantly sweep
We’ve been through a lot in the past few weeks
And all we want to do is go to sleep,
And all we want to do is go to sleep.
Just last week, on Wednesday, 7 days ago, a couple toured our home and made a full price cash offer. On Friday another couple came through and upped the ante $20,000 above asking. The first couple countered. However, they had a contingency and they were having trouble with that contingency so we declined their offer. We countered back to the 2nd couple with the top price, and they accepted.
