Sent in my application to the mortgage banker. Meeting with my attorney to review and sign the contract tomorrow (rather later today). Got an email from the seller:
Hi Jonathan.As I'm sure you understand, it was quite difficulttelling folks that I had accepted an offer! Oneperson was quite angry, saying that he might have goneup to my original asking price! Another also said hewas prepared to go a little higher than he had...Then yesterday, someone called for the first time tomake a bid but I told her not to bother since Ialready accepted an offer... I'm a novice at this andfeeling a little foolish, but hey, I'm good on my word(I could never be a broker, thankfully).
Thank God for honorable people.
