It's been a full four weeks since my last post... OOOOOPS! In my defense, the month of February was a bit CRAZY!
Here is a little time-line of house related events:
January 31: Mid-morning - called a possible new Realtor
January 31: 4 pm - Possible new Realtor was at our house, FULL of ideas and excitement
February 3: Consultant with painting lady about kitchen cupboards (we ended up NOT doing it!), and some furniture rearrangement with the help our new Realtor
February 4: Menards run!
February 5: Painting, hanging art, painting, fixing basement window trim, painting, moving furniture, cleaning
February 6: 11 am - Showing #1
February 7: Signed contract with Realtor
February 9: 8 pm - Showing #2
February 13: 10:30 am - Showing #3
February 16: 4 pm - Showing #4
February 21: 11:30 am - Showing #5
February 25: 10 am - Showing #6 (a 2nd with the people from #5)
February 25: Just after noon - An OFFER comes in. It was very low, so we countered back that afternoon.
February 28: Heard back that they have decided to keep looking...
So yeah, a showing every 3-5 days... that's a LOT of cleaning. I'm ready for March and a decent offer or two!
Hopefully I will be back sooner than a month from now with more details on our meeting with our new Realtor and everything we did to get the house ready. I also have a couple other random decorating posts in the works....
