The ubiquitous real estate For Sale sign: it's everywhere and it's unremarkable...until it's the one planted in your front yard. Now that's remarkable. We've been preparing for five years to sell the house and we are totally mentally prepared for it. Yet I'm still a bit surprised when I see the gloss-white 4x4 post out there with the Open Sunday placard perched on top, such a strange thing. Even weirder still is opening the house to complete strangers to walk through and make judgements about whether our beloved home is a place they'd want to call their own.
I think it will sell quickly. We've priced it competitively based on other new listings nearby. It went on the market yesterday and we've already had half a dozen folks come by with their agents. Tomorrow we have two more scheduled and the open house the day after. All very encouraging.
Del Viento here we come!
