What The Realtor Said

Our realtor came back today with the good, the bad and the ugly. And for the most part it was good. The comp's she showed were pretty much what we expected and she's optimistic...and then so am I.

There's not nearly as much needing to be done to the house as I originally had anticipated. Actually just a few cosmetic things - oh, and DH wants to re-do the roof which the realtor told me might bring in an extra $10k (wow!). But seeing as DH can do it himself, it might not cost a whole lot so bonus!

Now comes the hard part because since DH works all day long, and I don't - I get the unenviable job of clearing our house of extraneous crap and storing it in a storage unit so the house looks "less full" and it can be staged better. The house is brimming with storage but you wouldn't know it since all the storage is currently being used nearly to capacity.

It makes me tired just thinking about it but then again, I'm reading the history of Emma Smith and all that she was able to accomplish during her myriad pregnancies and I'm humbled...I can move a few freakin' boxes! Geez!

I have to say, I am an expert packer, mover, transporter...whatever your fancy. I've only done it twice this far! To coin the Jackson 5, "Just call my name, and I'll be there." :)

If you need any help let me know. I enjoy that kind of stuff. I am excited for you. You have been talking about this for a while. GOOD LUCK!

You have a great perspective about it. Emma Smith was such an inspiration. She dealt with a lot of stuff in a short amount of time. Good luck!

I can empathize! We built our new house and I staged, packed and cleaned our old house while I was prego with Luka and throwing up a million times a day. It was hard work but worth it.
