Ahhhh! I can’t even believe I typed that headline. Everything has moved SO QUICKLY these last couple weeks. As soon as we finished the master bathroom I threw the idea out to Mike that we should contact our realtor just to feel him out. Next thing we knew we were signing contracts, photos were taken and our house was officially on the market. I’m talking in less than 48 hours, guys. If you know me — you know I go big or go home when it comes to executing an idea. 🙂 Our house went up for sale on the day of our fifth wedding anniversary which seemed kismet. The whole time we were sort of like HOLY CRAP what are we doing?! But it just felt right. And we were excited.
Fast forward several showings (read: lots of daily tidying. Lots. I’ll admit I was neurotic) and our house was sold in 8. freaking. days. 8 days guys! I like to pat myself on the back and think our updates and my “staging” helped, but I also think the market is hot in our area right now and there wasn’t much competition. Also, major kudos to our realtor (I’m looking at you Conrad Kuhn) for pricing our house right. The offer was for full ask. No negotiating. Needless to say we were thrilled!
One of the coolest things about listing our house for sale was seeing the photos our real estate photographer took of the house. After putting nearly five years of work into this home it felt so good to see the final product. Are you ready for a tour?! Check it out!
We’re officially under contract on a new house but I want to get through the inspection process and make sure it’s a sure thing before sharing any details. It’s an older single family home that’s chock full of character but definitely needs some love. Needless to say I’m excited about the possibilities! Has anyone out there moved lately? Do you have any tips to share? What helped you stay organized while packing and unpacking? I need all the advice I can get!
