It was a wild and crazy ride. You hear that it is a slow market these days. I have been in 3 multiple offer situations lately.
This past weekend was a real nail biter. I was representing a buyer in a multiple offer situation...it was especially tense because they live out of town , and I have to relay everything long distance,- 3 hours time difference. It was like a good movie. Suspense, surprise, mystery, missed connections, high emotions, multiple high spirited personalities, and for me...and especially my buyers, a HAPPY ENDING! I think it is good to report that the market is alive and well in many respects.
It was a total adrenaline rush for 48 hours. I have been on the other end before too, when my buyer has not gotten the house and that is a real let down.
I advise my buyers to use escalation clauses when in a multiple offer situation. In this case, the seller chose to counter rather than use the escalation. It became very tense and confusing. Now that we got the house, all is good and I am believing that they will live there happily ever after!
