On October 30, our house officially went on the market for sale. With this being the first time we have sold a home, our emotions have been all over the place. We've had 6 showings so far, but no offers. It has been super hectic getting the house all cleaned up and looking "perfect" for the showings, but the last couple of days, we haven't had anyone through, which has been a kind of nice change.
It's hard not to get emotionally invested in selling our home. The same exact day, another house in our neighborhood was listed (although priced at $50,000 more.) I just saw today that it's already pending! Every time I see a similar home to ours go to "pending," it makes me wonder what's wrong with our house and why haven't we gotten an offer yet. I know we've only been on the market for a week, but I'm just anxious to get this thing sold!
As far as our new home goes, everything has been going great and we should be ready to sign the loan docs very soon. My attention now will move to getting things ready before move-in. Let's hope we get an offer on our current home soon!
