I am very excited that I found a house I really like and decided to jump on it. I also listed my house with a realtor Saturday and in 6 days I have had about 10 showings and three offers. Today, I accepted an offer for $3,000 over my asking price and that is because the 2nd and 3rd offers went into a slight bidding war. I am happy to move out of a duplex that is attached to some unwanted neighbors and into a 3 bedroom, 3 bath, ranch with basement. The best part about this new house is the three car garage that is 25 foot deep!

New house listing is off market because everything is in the works for this place to be mine.

Very nice! You would pay another $500k for that house in my neighborhood.

Same or more in mine! It went crazy up here a few years ago now (settled now somewhat) where houses that were normally selling for around the OP's amount, tripled and then some. eek

It was great for current owners, obviously, but sucked for those just entering the market. I have heard of average, or middle income families having 7,8, to one million dollar mortgages.

Interest rates just went up another .25% as well so I am sure it will soon, if it hasn't already, turned into a sellers market here pretty quickly.

Great deal. Such a difference in home prices region to region. In my area that would easily be a $500-750k house. If in Seattle itself then seven figures.

A big garage is great. I used to have a 24x30 two car garage. I wish I still had that space but times change.
