Unfortunately, after not hearing back from the agent for another 24 hours, my wife called her (from my phone, as she wasn’t picking up calls from my wife’s phone), and finally got her on the other line. The woman made a bunch of excuses about having an emergency dentist appointment, not being able to get in touch with her buyers, etc. In the end, the takeaway was that our counter-offer wasn’t going to be responded to, and that particular deal was dead.
Btw, as my wife reminded me, this is actually the third offer we had received on this property. Offer #2 came almost immediately after Offer #1 fell through, but we were fairly convinced that the buyers weren’t financially qualified, and chose to reject their offer outright.
So, we’re now waiting for some lucky buyer to submit Offer #4, and hopefully that will be the one that sticks… 🙂
