Selling our house: Report #1

Our house has been for sale for a long time--a very long time, but after dropping our price once again this month, we had two lookers scheduled for the same day. The first one made a verbal offer for cash, but it was lower than our asking price. We did query the realtor about a counter-offer, but apparently the buyers weren't interested, and they gave us a deadline on the same day. And so the second showing was cancelled. I wasn't even home, so the family had to track me down via phone, and we discussed all the variables. What is the right thing to do?! Well, today we signed the acceptance papers, and this week is the house inspection. The closing will depend upon that. And then we start looking at houses and making more decisions...
