What our new family member gave us -6

We were puzzled what happened. We all thought among 59 offers, we had no chance of winning. Anyways, we drove to our real estate agent's office. She told us that the seller accepted our offer!!! We doubted our ears. 58 competing offers were made to the seller. I was sure that we were not the highest offer. My agent was, either. But, we gathered all the money we could put together and offered as cash. We were neither proud nor confident about it. Since we could not get loan, it was only way to propose. But, there were 2 points. My wife and I could prove based on my real estate agent advise that we have enough checking, saving, CD's to pay the offer.

2nd point was that we did raise the offer from the list price by about 20%. We have no way knowing the truth, but according to Naomi, our real estate agent, it was best practical offer against the property taking property condition and situation into consideration. We signed all the documents and thanked God.

In addition, we thanked Snowy who gave us this opportunity. My wife and I talked about the housing market, but without Snowy involvement, we would not be seriously looking for house to buy.
