Who's Sitting on the Fence?
So, we put flyer's and a cheesy For Sale By Owner sign in the front yard. I updated pictures on Zillow under a Make Me Move listing. It is also on Craig's List. We have had quite a few calls....ALL from Realtor's! They all want to list our home. One woman in particular had a very persuasive approach as to why we needed someone to represent us in selling our home. She sold us, we were going to list with her. Saturday Jerry and I went out for a drive to see if there were any open houses that appealed to us. We are looking for a single story in an area that has mostly two story homes. We came home a little disappointed in what is available. There are so many foreclosures and short sales flooding the market. We are a little worried that if we sell our home, will we be able to find our next home in a timely manor? What will we have to do to make it feel like home? Will it be trashed by the previous owner? So many questions...so uncertain! So, I called the Realtor and cancelled our meeting for tomorrow night. We are not quite ready to pay the commissions required for representing our sale, it's a big chunk of money! Yes...I am on the fence.....but it's my fence, and I feel so relieved to be staying put. I'm not sure how long we will stay, but today I'm totally fine with it!
