Maternity ward real estate, a first
A definite first. We were about to write an offer Friday morning on a house my buyers were very excited about. My buyers are also very expectant, as in the baby is due this week. As you may guess from the title, that Friday appointment did not happen as contractions take precedence over real estate.
We learned that the sellers of this particular house were out of town for the weekend camping in west TX so offers would not be presented until Monday. We also learned that they already had one offer in and thought it would be up to 3 (including ours) by the end of the weekend. I explained the situation to Dad-to-be and told we would either need to write the offer this weekend or this was not the house for them. Dad-to-be said this was definitely the house for them and we would figure something out over the weekend. I told him first things first and to call me on Saturday and let me know baby and Mom status.
First, the star of the story: Eleanor, 7 lbs 12 oz, full head of hair, 10 fingers and 10 toes, showed up some time on Saturday.
Fast forward, I met them at the hospital Sunday afternoon with a room full of family. We talked baby and real estate for about an hour, wrote the offer and I left them with their hopes and dreams.
Hope they get the house. Eleanor will love it.
