kokotg Posted March 7, 2012 Share Posted March 7, 2012 There are at least a few of us, right? I thought the part where we frantically cleaned and fixed and painted everything in the house was bad, but it turns out the endless waiting in The Cleanest House in the World is worse. We're hoping to move closer to friends and kid activities (and a bit farther away from DH's job, but not much, and we both figure it's his turn to drive!) and get a little extra space while we're at it. So I know we're very lucky in that we don't HAVE to move. But I really want to, and the uncertainty is making me crazy. We'll have had the house listed for 2 weeks on Friday. The first 3 days we had 2 showings, and I was very encouraged. Then....nothing. Nothing at all over the weekend. But! We have a showing tomorrow! And then an open house on Sunday. In related news, DH is a math teacher, and he just heard that a high school a bit closer to the area we want to move is looking for a calculus teacher. He'd love to teach calculus (it's the sort of gig math teachers don't give up once they have it, so there's not much chance of him getting to teach it at his current school anytime soon), and it kind of gives a ring of possible meant to be-edness to the whole thing. Maybe. Knock wood. We sold one house before, 9 years ago, but that was in Boston at the height of the housing boom. We knew it wouldn't take long, and it didn't. Of course, I was 6 months pregnant then, moving to a different state, and dealing with a filthy tenant who didn't pay the rent, so that situation had its own stresses. Okay! So who else? How's it going? Share your tales of woe or hopefulness! And does anyone want to buy a very cute 4 bedroom cape on a wooded acre at a great price an hour north of Atlanta? :D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
