Ready to Party!
It all worked! We have washed our hands of Seattle! For those interested, since this is in the public record now I will share amounts: we listed at $685K, had 4 offers, and went with our favorite (which was not the cash offer), and the house sold for $738K.
We love the new owners, and they love the house (and have already met three of the four neighbors we took 15 years to meet . . . and, indeed, the only ones we knew the names of).
Our House Cooling Party on Valentine's Day was highly successful! I have to say, though, when did everyone find the time to acquire toddlers??? View pictures of the event here, with the long suffering Torpid in attendance (as a seat).
