We accepted an offer on the house today, and made an offer on the big blue house. I don't want to be too excited about this, in case of a jinx situation - but - I am smiling on the inside. We still have an open house to go through this weekend, and the hope would be that we get a higher pre-approved offer, but if we don't we could be in contract this time next week! Also as the buyer is a mainly cash one, there shouldn't be any of those nightmare chain type hiccups. Now if only the house we made the offer on comes easily - all will be well in Bramble Cottage.
