Selling Our House: An Update

Hi folks! Whew, it's been a whirlwind week already. I fully intended on posting yesterday, but time sort of got away from me with a busy work day. No worries, I'm back today with the update I promised you. 


 I've received a few emails and comments asking what the status is with selling our house. I've got a pretty short answer: we're still chugging along. Our home has officially been on the market for exactly a month now and we're sort of off to a slow (but optimistic!) start.

To start, we've decided to leave all decisions about pricing, market evaluation, etc. in the hands of our extremely capable listing agent. In the last month, we've had one showing (although we've got one scheduled for today-  fingers crossed!) with very positive feedback. Our house just wasn't "the one" for them.

Honestly, we're still really positive about the entire process. We understand the market is what it is and we're willing to be patient. David is absolutely in love with his new job, so the long commute is worth it. We know we made the right decision in that respect and can only hope that it's part of God's plan for us to move closer to David's new job, as well.

But... if not... I am not so sure I'll be devastated : ) Ol' preggo over here is getting a tad bit sentimental about leaving this house before the baby comes in September. David and I planned to raise a family in this home and it's kind of hard to let go of visions of our tykes scampering around. In fact, we were hanging out in the backyard Sunday afternoon and I couldn't help it, but a part of me thought: are we crazy for leaving this beautiful home of ours?!

But, again, I think it's just the sentiments getting the best of me. 

For those of you wondering how we're handling selling the house + baby... as of now, we plan to pull the plug on selling the house by middle summer or so. We want the ability to settle down, complete the little guy's nursery, give me some time to nest, etc. And then maybe we'll put the house back on the market next spring. But then again, never say never... who knows what lies ahead.

In the end, David and I are fully invested in what the big man upstairs has ahead for us, so we're willing to sit back, have faith and find out what that is along the way. We're completely dedicated and committed to selling this house in the next couple of months (hello, we keep this place spotless and ready to show 24-7... now that is tough work!). We really appreciate all of your thoughts, prayers and support... it means the world to know we've got a great group of people behind us! So thank you.

And hey! Maybe today's showing will be fruitful... here's hoping!

  3. What a great attitude about it! Letting things happen as they will is so much better than stressing over it. I saw a pin on Pinterest yesterday that said "Worry is like a rocking chair.. gives you something to do but doesn't get you anywhere." I think I need to print it off and preach it to myself every day!

  4. I'm glad you shared an update. You know I was interested in your plans with baby on the way. Sounds like you have the right perspective and I'm sure everything will truly work out the way it's supposed to. That's hard to stomach for me, sometimes. But, it always works out.

  13. I had been hoping for an update as well! I love that you have such a sense of peace about how it will all play out. I am sure keeping the house spotless is a bit of a drag, but all worth it. When we sold our first house I kept thinking, "It only take ones!" The perfect buyer will come along to love your home as much as you do.

  17. Keep in mind that you're in the middle of "March Madness" so that may account for a slower start. You've certainly got the right attitude about the whole thing and God always has a plan.

  22. Michelle-

    Not sure hw I wasn't following you until now, I've fixed that problem:) I know it's hard to put your life in the hands of others, but I know that whatever happens will have a reason behind it. You have done so much to your home, it's just lovely, that I'm sure the right buyer will come along. Hopefully with enough time for you to get he new nursery ready!
