Could it be that I seriously haven't posted a blog in SEVEN MONTHS????? How is this even possible? More importantly, why am I not laying on the beach drinking margaritas seven months after we first listed our house?
Let's bring you up to speed on the seventh circle of hell that Josh and I have been living during our blog-absence... We have had COUNTLESS showings on our house - imagine spending between two and four hours a day cleaning...everyday! Some of these showings were actually no-shows. Really, people? You're going to call and make an appointment that requires an average of three hours of preparation on another person's behalf (not to mention the two hours that we are forbidden to be in the house) and then... NOT SHOW UP? Not even call? Lucky for you that your identity remains anonymous, because otherwise, you might want to watch over your shoulder in dark alleys!
We've had Realtors leave our front door open (I'm not talking about unlocked, but OPEN, as in, WIDE), we've had Realtors cancel their showing the day after they were supposed to be there, we've had Buyers who couldn't afford within $50k of the original asking price. All in all, it is a zoo out there! What is with the wild west of real estate? Shouldn't this be an exact science at this point?
And yet, somehow, even amidst the insanity of the process, we are still optimistic. We've drastically reduced our asking price and are starting to get some interest generated. Good timing, because I've lost interest... Completely!
