Don’t worry, I’m still here… it’s just been a crazy week. Our house finally got listed on the MLS yesterday, after a whirlwind weekend devoted to all sorts of last minute touch ups. The photographer was here on Tuesday and took fantastic pictures and 360 degree videos for the virtual tour. We’ve already had three showings this evening, and have another one scheduled for tomorrow. We asked for an hour’s notice to show, so that we can gather up the dog, cat, litter box, baby, and our computers and get out of here. So far all of our showings have given us several hours notice, which has been nice.
We had hoped that the house would be listed for at least $200k, and it’s on the market for nearly $215k, so we’re happy about that. Our realtor said that she expects it to sell for somewhere between $205k and $210k, once we factor in either seller concessions or a lower offer. Now we just wait and see. And clean like Martha Stewart. I keep looking around the house and smiling, because it is never this clean. But I gotta say, there is a lot more to life than cleaning every day, so I’m looking forward to having all of this behind us and getting settled into a new home where we can get back to our comfortable “lived in” look.
