A few weeks ago I told you about the work we were doing to prepare our house for putting it on the market. In that post I promised that I would show you pictures of the finished product.
Well, to be honest, it has taken me a few weeks to realize that this is a reality. We of course have our house on the market. It has been listed for two weeks as of today. We try to keep it “spotless” every day in case someone wants to see it. We are trying not to get too excited about the next house, but we do have our lists of houses we want to make our home. We use apps like Realtor.com, Redfin.com, and RI Living to keep track of houses we love, and to remember houses we want to show each other and our Realtor.
Right now, we are in limbo. The hurry up and wait of being for sale is not an easy one to navigate. Before we can buy our next home, we have to sell this home. Dreaming can happen, but reality cannot set in until someone else calls this house their own.
We have obviously bought a house, but we have never been in a position to sell a house. We needed to pick the right Realtor. Aliesha is wonderful. She is honest, funny, and willing to tell us no when the right answer is no. Hearing that word can be hard, but I am glad we picked someone who is walking us through this step by step to be certain that we get the house we want, and that this house sells to someone who wants it. I am grateful that my best friend just went through this, and recommended her Realtor to help us make this dream of a bigger house with a bigger yard a reality for us. Consider this my recommendation to all of you that if you are looking to sell or buy, Aliesha will do amazing things for you as well.
We are virgins at this. Scared, unsure, and praying we made the right choice. Our house is beautiful right now, and we are falling back in love with all of the amazing details. We love this house. It still contains a lot of it’s original charm. (do I sound like a Realtor yet, or maybe just someone who watches a lot of HGTV?)
