“It felt like a major relief,” said Katie Piehl. “But that also made us realize how quickly we’d have to move on a house once we decided to more forward.”

Their own house hunt has been far less successful than the sale of their place in south Minneapolis. Like many sellers who are trying to buy back into the market, the Piehls are not sure where they will move next. They have been outbid on one house, and haven’t found any others that are worth an offer. If they can’t find a suitable option by their closing, they will move in with Katie’s parents.

“It was a huge weight off our shoulders to not have to sit with our house on the market for a month,” she said. “We’re a happy ending story to the housing market story.”
