Here’s the quick catch-up on what’s been going on here lately:
Last week, three different prospective buyers got in the mix and we accepted an offer. Pending our inspection next week, Hank the House will be officially sold to an awesome second family!
So now, things really speed up. Our planned close date is mid May, which means we’ll likely do the big move out the weekend before. Which means we need a lease starting May 1. Which means YIKES! 🙂 I’ve already packed some boxes, sold some stuff on Facebook, and talked myself through a couple freak-outs. (Did I mention I leave for a five day girls trip – first vacation in a year! – in the middle of this?) Page is on the hunt for a short term lease and possibly separate storage space – cross your fingers.
We’ll make it work, and we knew we were signing up for this when we decided to build our next home. (Post coming soon on that decision.) I can’t wait to share details and plans and sneak peeks with you guys. All of this is going to be SO worth it. 🙂
For those who’ve asked, YES we sold our home ourselves. I’m planning a post on all the details, including how we staged and promoted our home, and how to get on the MLS, all of which we’re convinced made all the difference in getting lots of traffic (a dozen showings in the first two weeks) and quick offers (sold in three weeks). It’s not for everyone, but we would do it again. We feel like we learned a LOT in this process and want to share!
