So, last Wednesday we got an offer on the house, but it was terrible-- we would almost have lost money. We sent back a rather high counter offer, and really expected to hear no more. Much to our surprise, last night we got another counter offer, somewhat better.

My husband ran up a spreadsheet, and we actually sent back two different offers. They came out almost exactly the same on our end, but required different amounts of cash up front from the buyers. And we shocked our realtor by telling her to add a personal note-- that we would leave them our riding lawn mower.

This morning she phoned us again, utterly shocked. They took one of the offers... "the lawnmower did it!" Which makes the second time that riding mower has closed the deal. Seven years ago, when faced with a counter offer that was just a bit more than we wanted to spend, we jokingly asked if the sellers would throw in the lawn mower, since otherwise we'd have to buy one right away. Our realtor shared that, and they agreed, and that's how we ended up here!

It is the kindest cut.

That is awesome! Both the deal on the house, and the involvement of the riding lawnmower. :)
