Now that we’ve finally got the house ready to sell (as ready as it’s going to be) we have the wonderful privilege of primping the house before every showing. We have one couple that may be interested in the house and they came over for the second time today. That is particularly interesting since we just met with the realtor after completing the market analysis. In fact, we asked for the weekend to read over the contract. This means that when we are showing the house, it is literally “we” who show the house. We both agreed (Lori and I) that we really don’t know what we’re doing when it comes to maki the sale. For instance, do we hover around them to help answer their questions or do we go outside and let them freely discuss, without fear of hurting our feelings. We tried a mixture of both. We did force the children to play outside the entire time, even to the int of making Emily “hold it” until we were done. How cruel are we! Actually, we were less worried about her disactions and more about the mud created by this months well-abive average rainfall.
In the end, we’re hopeful in the quick sale of our house. But, we are being cautious about getting our hopes up. In the meantime, it feels like we’re living in somebody’s house.
