Pray Wish Hope Pray Wish Hope Pray Wish Hope

The biggest news from this past week is there are two potential buys for my house. One has already looked at it twice and my Realtor thinks is talking numbers with her Realtor. The other is looking at it for the second time this weekend. Eek! Squee! Please please please let them love it!

I’m #67! Yessssssssss!

Hee hee.

The first potential buyers came through to look at my house today. Woot! Hope they liked it.

It's funny, but this process has been an interesting experience for me because deep down I'm convinced that my house will sell fast. I think I said this in an earlier post, but there is a part of me that thought there would be bunches of people coming through last Wednesday who would then end up in a bidding war. Seriously.


I am the eternal rose-colored glasses person. Cock-eyed optimist. Flowers and sunshine. I have gotten much better as I have gotten older at seeing the world as it really is and not as I want it to be. I'm more realistic and practical now so I do understand that houses in my price range typically sell in an average of 6 months. There is a big difference between three days and six months. I get that. But I love my house and so I think every one else will too. [huge grin]

So, today my first potential new best friends came through. I sure hope they liked it.

Oh yeah! The title refers to my house's ranking through my realtor's website. They track the number of views each property gets and list the top 100. Mid-week last week mine wasn't even in the top 100, so it's shot up quite a bit! Yay!
