Selling this place has been mega-stressful. First of all, it sucks to have to clean the place every single morning because there's always the possibility of someone stopping by to check it out. Oh how I hate making the bed everyday! Secondly, it sucks every time someone comes into this house and leaves all the lights on and the doors unlocked. Thirdly, it sucks to never find out any sort of feedback regarding what people think about your home!
Lastly, it sucks to go through the bidding battle. We got a bid this weekend (our first), but it was MUCH lower than what we were willing to give it up for. So we countered. Bidder said no because he was waiting on other offers. They must have all said no because he just came back with yet another bid. STILL lower than what we want. So we countered again. Now we wait. Rob is more desperate than I am, and I know he wants to take whatever this guy comes back with. I'm not as anxious because it's so much lower than what we listed our house for.
But it's a bad market out there for sellers. So I may as well bite the bullet, sell the place, move into an apartment, and count down the days until our new home is complete. Not bad. Hey, if it wasn't a buyer's market, we wouldn't have been able to afford our awesome new townhouse. It goes both ways. If we sell to this guy, we have to move in a month! That'll make July the month-o-packing.
I'll keep you guys updated. In other news, don't forget about the contest below! Winner announced tomorrow evening. Good luck!!!!
