45 hours to go...

June 28th, 2011 at 01:24 pm

Closing on the house is set for 1 p.m. Thursday. Here's hoping the last tradesman shows up tomorrow, therefore sealing the deal.

Selling the house, with all the fixing up, staging, and then negotiations, and second round of repairs has been exhausting. It's amazing what you can get done in a week and a half when you're contractually obligated! (And how much more it costs you to do it on someone else's timeline... Frown Boo.

Anyway, I do feel blessed that we will be able to sell our home. The market really is that terrible, according to all the appraisers, title people, and realtors I talk to. I was thinking though that it seems totally random to me why some houses sell so quickly and others-- that are just as nice-- languish on the market. I guess part of it is elbow grease, but most of it is luck. All the "Designed to Sell" we did wouldn't have mattered if no one came to see it, or the right person hadn't come along so quickly. It really is just waiting for the person to come along who sees potential in your house.

I am also aware that deals can fall apart at any second, so I think I am disappointing hubby with my reaction to all of this. He keeps expecting me to be overjoyed, but I'm not. Just kind of stressed out at the never ending to do list, and too cautious not to take anything for granted.

    I bet it is going work out great!! I think presentation of your home and pictures are key once you can get a potential buyer in your home. Bad wallpaper, or a cluttered home are distracting to most buyers. You sure did not have any of that.

    I think you are being wise and your husband's too enthusiastic. Frankly, I'd be overjoyed only after the check hits bank and stays there.

    It sounds like you priced your house correctly (and you could), close to a price that someone wanted to pay.
