We're done. The pictures have been taken, the contracts with the real estate agent have been signed, we're selling our house! Well, you know, if we can find a buyer.
Our first open house is this Sunday, which also happens to be TK's birthday.
Here's how I think it'll go, version ONE:
12:00: Open house begins
12:15: Call from agent: "I can't believe how many people are here!"
12:30: Call from agent: "Oh my, there's a bidding war going on! There are THREE couples all desperate for your house!"
12:45: Call from agent: "A fourth couple just threw their name in the mix!"
2:00: Open house ends. People are still milling around outside, marveling at our house.
5:00: Multiple offers, all above our asking price.
What do you think? Am I going to be disappointed on Sunday?
Here's how I think it'll go, version TWO:
12:00: Open house starts.
2:00 Open house finishes. Agent says: "We got a few looky-loos, but no serious buyers came through. It was a slow day because of x, y, z."
6 months later...
5:00: Finally got an offer, significantly below asking price.
What do you think? Am I going to be pleasantly surprised on Sunday?
Realistically, I think it'll be somewhere in between those two extremes. Or at least I hope. I know open houses rarely sell a house, so I actually don't have big expectations for Sunday. And quite honestly, we haven't seen any houses we like yet, so the thought of our house selling very quickly scares me just as much as it selling very slowly. Ideally, it'll sell on the very day that we find our perfect new house...whenever that day is...
Oh sorry, fell into dream land again!
