This is my first experience with selling a house.
There are a few good things about it-
My house is cleaner than normal....I guess just one good thing and it hardly counts because it falls under the less than pleasant category again.
The hard things-
Keeping it clean- We requested four hours notice before anyone comes to look at our house. Usually we get that - sometimes we don't. We get calls from realtors saying "I know you requested four hours notice but could we show it in one hour". I don't want to say "No" because they could be the person that falls in love with our house. Thus, I feel like I must keep it clean at all times. We always have kept it fairly clean. The kids get things out, then put them away but this is to a whole new level.
Plus once I get it clean then what do the kids do...I don't want them to make a mess, but I hate having them watch TV, we figure it out but it can get challenging and I think it wears them out a little too. (I am sure I am making this sound worse than it it- probably because I just got a call from a realtor that wants to come this afternoon and I wanted to take a nap!)
Being sick- All week I have felt a little under the weather and now I get to clean, chase kids and try to get feeling better.
I get my hopes up every time thinking these people will want our cute adorable little house. We have been told a couple times that people really liked our house and were considering it. That is as far as it's gotten so far. At the same time I get a little sentimental about the house each time. I have decided it is better if they look at it with me gone because the one time I stayed home I had to listen to the woman who was looking at our house rip it apart the entire time she was here. It made me sad and upset and I didn't want her to have my house (which she didn't want either).
I know our house hasn't been up for very long yet (how do people do it for months or years?). Hopefully it sells to the perfect people soon. (I think if I ever have to sell a house again Ill get it all ready then leave for a while).
Anyway enough ranting about that I have to go clean because I only have a couple hours until another showing!!!
