Our realtor called today while were were Christmas shopping in Camden. She said "they're talking" today. She thought we'd hear by the end of the day. Yes, I'm nearly going crazy -- especially after making the heroic effort not to worry about it yesterday. All that nervous energy just built up for today :P
So, I have no idea one way or the other. I would hope they would be realistic and realize that they're not going to get anyone to give them this price, in this market, at this time of the year. I hope they just suck it up and fix the attic floor wiring. Sigh.
