From my post ‘Happenings on the Homefront‘, I wrote the following –
As some of you may know, selling a home and having it listed on the market can at times be hectic. Gary and I always want our home to show perfectly and immaculately. We are neat in our living and our home is always clean and tidy. Especially now that the home is ready to sell and we never know when that next call will come in for the next showing.
In today’s post, I write the following –
We are waiting for that next call and the next showing.
The house is on the market now for 5 weeks today. The amount of showings in these past weeks has been disappointing. The initial excitement we had to sell the home has diminished some, but we continue to remain confident the house will sell soon. While we continue to remain optimistic we continue to keep the house spotless both inside and outside. During this time, we continue to plan the next chapter in our lives, which as you know is Plan B – our travel adventure.
Several open houses have taken place with additional ones in the works in the next couple of weeks. Once a solid offer is received, additional downsizing will take place.
We have not made a final decision on what we will keep and store and what we will rid of. We may choose to have an estate sale and sale everything, or take another route to sell some items and keep others. Time will tell on what we will decide. We also will need to officially buy the RV which at this point will be a travel trailer. We anticipate the weight of it empty and the added weight with what we will take will us will be under that weight capacity our new truck can tow.
We are very anxious to sell the home because quite frankly we are ready to move on. We are excited about our future and ready to embark on the adventure we are planning.
Obviously depending on the result of my next urology visit, some future plans may need to be changed.
But in the meantime we both have become a little irritable lately because the keeping the house spotless to show potential buyers and not having potential buyers come look at it – well – is stressful and we have become restless.
The additional activities that will take place once a solid offer is in place and the results of my next Dr. F. visit are on hold until the time comes. In the meantime, we continue to clean windows, dust furniture, wipe countertops, pickup leaves from the yard and wait for that next call and the next showing.
The frustration of the day in day out constant routines to keep the house ‘show-ready’ are getting to me.
I am ready to move on!
