taking a break from packing up our home of the last 5 years (which thankfully, we got, countered, and accepted an offer (99% of our original list price) after 21 days on the market! Closing in July) and hitting the road back north in a few days!

Congratulations, you priced it correctly and the market responded.

Thank you, WFM! We are pretty stoked. All of the inspections (HVAC, termite, and home) came out good--buyer asked for 2 repairs to be made which we already did one (prior to request) and the other will be taken care of through our realtor since we'll already be up in Portland. I'm just thrilled we're not sitting on the market like the house around the corner from us--exact same floor plan, but they hadn't made any real improvements (actually, they converted a bedroom into a "dining" room ) --everything is still builder's grade materials-- and from the get go, was overpriced. They've been on the market coming on 120 days. I"m actually happy they were on the market, because our buyer viewed that particular property first (it dropped $15,000 from original list price) and then viewed ours right after--ours was close to the competition's original asking, but not quite as high

Classic, they sold your house for you. It happens all the time.

Well, we've been here about 2.5 weeks and so far, we're very happy. Everyone has been great! My kids are acclimating just fine and they love the beaches--they can't get enough...unfortunately/fortunately we can only go on certain days due to DH's schedule. My oldest is about to complete his week at "soccer camp" and he's had a blast. My youngest, well, is a bit young to really take part in organized activities, but has enjoyed himself on our outings. The food has been amazing. It's nice to be in a place where every other establishment is not a franchise--actually regardless of type of business. I really like how Maine takes pride in Maine. Its quite refreshing and we're happy to become new residents of this fine state.
