How NOT To Sell A House
If you want to sell your house ...
Do NOT go on a month long Road Trip, in order to keep the house clean. No one will look at it while you are gone. However, right when you get back, and your house is in an uproar from returning from a month long trip ... then your first potential buyers will want to come.
Do NOT move out of your house for 6 months, in order to keep the house clean. No one will look at it while you are gone. However, as soon as you move back in, and there are boxes everywhere, then a realtor will phone and want to show it to potential buyers #2.
Yes ... tomorrow afternoon our house will be showing for the 2nd time in the 7 months that it has been on the market, and we (as a family ... with the children) have only been home for 2.5 weeks of that 7 months. I REALLY don't understand the timing of all of this. I think that God has a sense of humor, and He wants to make sure that we are still laughing.
PRAYING that these people will want to buy the house; yet, CONCERNED that it will sell and we won't be able to buy a house on the island. Definitely mixed emotions here tonight. TRUSTING that God has all of the details worked out, and that HE knows where we will live when the house sells. (Homeless in "Clifford the Big Red Van" does not sound like fun.)
Well ... gotta go clean bathrooms ... empty boxes ... hide boxes that I don't have time to empty and organize ...
Just got word ... Hannah is coming over to help Mama D. ... gotta LOVE those Adopted Big Kids ...
