Wow. This real estate thing is hard.

.... Seriously! You have to keep your house clean for days.... six of them to be exact.

Why just six, you ask?

Because. We just sold it. Yesterday.

Well, okay not exactly. But we did accept an offer (after countering) and our house is Under Contract.

Exciting, right? Oh, sure, it was nerve-wracking. And yes, maybe we did under price it. And I'm sure we'll have lots of people tell us this (as they have already). And I assure you that DOES NOT HELP EASE MY MENTAL STATE. *

You know, my mental state that is currently all confuddled because I won't actually have a place to live in about six weeks. So the house hunt is ON like DONKEY KONG. **

And also because, as my sister just pointed out, my closing is FRIDAY THE 13th. ***

* - Sorry for the over caps. I'm really excited.
** - Again, sorry. But hello? I don't have a place to live in six weeks.
*** - Surely this one too is a gimme, no?

I'm so happy for you! And I'm so happy for me because now I can indulge in my love of on-line real estate listings without it being weird!

And poor you. Were those six days of showings just awful for you? I feel so bad... oh wait, no I don't. Try it for four months next time. I'm jealous of your quick sale... but mostly happy and excited to see what you end up buying. Good luck!

Don't be too jealous - because you know we left money on the table...

But I'm not dwelling. Honest.

Onward and up and kind of towards the east ward!

And pray that my deal doesn't fall through and make me cry!

Congratulations! Here's to a bigger, better house with more closet space for shoes!

THAT is awesome. Getting a house sold in this market is no mean feat--the rest of it will fall into place

Just think - now you get to change roles as the prospective buyer and see how everyone else keeps their listed home neat and tidy for a week straight!
