These last few weeks have been exhausting. I apologize for all but disappearing from my Vox neighborhood. I have read through postings but I just haven't had the energy to post comments or write my own stuff.
I honestly feel like I have been sprinting a marathon. The list I have to fix up the house just keeps getting longer. It's funny how that works. Just when I get most things crossed off I start noticing a whole bunch of other things to do.
The other problem is every time I start typing one of my cats comes over for attention. It's been rough on them too, all the people in and out, all the chaos… So of course I want to give them some attention and comfort.
Well, I am happy to say that I met with my Realtor on Thursday and did all the paperwork and my house officially goes on the market on Monday!
He was very pleased with how it looks and thinks it's going to be a competitive seller. One similar house in my area sold within a month recently. Egads! There are others that have been on the market a bit longer, but most are selling within 4-6 months.
The advantage I have is how fabulous it looks cosmetically. All the improvements are really going to set it apart. Some of the other house that are priced comparably with similar square footage are PITS! It looks like the owners had not done anything for years. Dirty, old, ragged…
The disadvantage is that my house is a two-bedroom, two-bath so it won't appeal to families with several kids. There is a 400 sq foot unfinished part of the basement that could be made into another room if the new owners wanted, but then they'd lose the storage space.
So, I'll post the info from the web next week once it's online. I am thrilled at how everything is working out. Excited to start the new chapter in my life and live in a new place, but I will miss this cozy little house. It's got a lot of my heart.
