I watch way too much HGTV! I've seen all the house selling shows and was really working to incorporate all the tips I've seen as we get ready to put our house on the market in less than 2 weeks. It's been about 2 months of hard labor. Ack.
That's all out the window now. I interviewed my first agent on Friday. What a hoot. He told me to quit worrying about stuff, stop taking down family photos, and not to worry so much about the dogs. I have 4 more to interview next week (I don't imagine they'll all be so laid back!)
Well, the agent I interviewed popped into the back yard today (he lives right up the street) and laughed at me when he saw me with the shop vac - asked if I was vacumming the back yard....very funny! (just the shed...
So he asked if he could bring a buyer by tomorrow. House is a wreck after my efforts to declutter - everything is in a pile in the corner waiting for us to take it to the storage unit tomorrow.
DH is gone so it's up to me to get this wreck back into some semblance of a house by tomorrow. Oh and did I mention that I'm petsitting for a friend, so I have 3 greyhounds and a pug?!
I think I'm going to have to choose this agent - he's keeping me sane and not letting me get spun up. I'll do what I can, and the buyer will have to use her imagination
The fact that my house is not on the market yet, I don't have an agent, and my house is a wreck makes no difference - I have my first person coming to view tomorrow! Wish me luck!
