Open House Update

Got a call from the realtor yesterday. He said that there were 2 couples who stopped by during the open house on Saturday. Both really liked our house. One is a family of 5, soon to be 6, and oh that made me so happy! :) But both couples have houses they are also trying to sell. That is the reality of the market that we have here right now. The person who buys our house is most likely not coming from an apartment, which means they have a house to sell, and the person who buys their house may have a house to sell, and it goes down the line. Since houses are not selling quickly around here, it really slows down the process. I cannot waste energy worrying about timelines that are beyond my control. We must lean on God to work it all out. It was much better news than I had thought!

I haven't mentioned it before, but in our cul-de-sac there are 3 other houses for sale. It's so funny to drive down the street and see the signs: 2 are directly next to us, and one straight across the street. All 3 were listed just before we listed ours. The first of the 3, on the market since May, just sold yesterday--hurray! This is just more evidence of what my realtor sent out to us in a letter a couple weeks ago--she said that more of the first time buyers are coming out and buying the starter homes, which means that those home owners are now searching for places to live...and it is only a matter of time before one of them wanders over to our place to make an offer. It is a long process of the market possibly starting to look better.

The waiting is the hardest...and Mitch is really feeling the strain. Only 15 days to go until his first day of work...
