Here is how it all went down:
On Wednesday night the realtor came over and my parents signed all the paperwork.
Thursday evening the photographer came over and took pictures of the house.
Then on Friday it went up on MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and we had the first showing of the house at 4:30pm. We left to go get dinner and came back after they had left.
We had one showing at 4:30pm and another at 7:00pm on Saturday. There were also a few phone calls from realtors and we set up more showings for Sunday and Monday.
Saturday evening the realtor came over to our house with one offer and another interested buyer. He made a bunch of phone calls back and forth, starting a small bidding war, and they ended up with a pending offer about $10,000 over the asking price.
Crazy and overwhelming. Possession date would be August 30 - so we really need to find a new house for my brother and myself. As well as get movers booked, start packing, and figure out what we are doing with my grandmother's stuff.
The other buyer who was interested in still there as a back up with their offer (which is also over the asking price).
I just can't believe how fast it happened. We never even got the for sale sign set up on the lawn.
