Sometimes, you can believe TV

12 April 2006

So as I was saying, these shows, these 'stage your home' shows tell you how you should slap some new paint on the walls, take out all the clutter, the excess furniture, fix the cracks in the walls and WOW, people will walk through and make offers on the spot.


We sold our house last night. It was on the market for 3 business days, 5 counting the weekend. We had 5 showings and three offers. ALL the offers were for MORE than our asking price. We went with the one who didn't have any conditions (though man, you feel bad for the others...hate that).
I think I'm still a little in shock. You know how you want and wait and want and wait and finally you get it and...then you're suddenly not sure if you still want it? I'm not saying I don't want to move and I'm glad the house sold (I didn't know how long I could keep up this spotless house routine), it just hit me, as I was typing it in an email to our realtor helping us with finding the new place--as I saw the words I thought--omygosh, we've sold our house. My beautiful house that I love so much--but wish it was in another city.

No, it's all good. Like my SIL said when I phoned her this morning--there's no doubt now that it's supposed to happen. I do believe that. And I can make another house look just as beautiful.

Hamilton here we come!!
