cajunrose Posted August 30, 2012 Share Posted August 30, 2012 My house has been on the market since June 2nd. The market here is slow right now but may be picking up? We have had 7 showings I think. I'm getting discouraged. I am having a tough time keeping my home clean clean. I have 2 BIG shedding dogs, 1 shedding cat and 7 chickens out back. People treck in and out of my house all day long..leaving muddy footprints everywhere. When we show the house, it's very very clean. Don't get me wrong, but it takes me forever to get it to that point and they have been giving me less and less notice. We are down to 1.5 hours. It's ROUGH to pull it together and leaves me just drained. I am cleaning baseboards in the house today..and OMG the dog hair. Like I said, I get it super clean but it's so hard. I have had new people in my home just to see what they say about the smell, cleanliness, etc and those people say that it smells great and looks perfect so I know I'm doing a good job there. My daughter is heartbroken b/c I'm not putting out fall decorations and minimimal Christmas. My decorations look hillbilly and not 'show' worthy at all. My daughter cried all morning over that. I'm also trying to run a home business out of the house...making soap...and I'm concerned about the super scented room that I use. I am going to put a business sign on that door so they don't think I'm just trying to cover smells. I can't just stop that business either...I'm just getting it going and it's just starting to fly fly. Still haven't gotten bad feedback even with that, but it worries me. Just needed a quick ear...I need to get over this being discouraged and just move on and do better. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
