Selling update.

So we had a realtor's tea this morning. Our realtor said she had 19 realtors come through. I think that's pretty good, don't ya think?! Man, it better be good for as much cleaning as I've been doing! I'm proud of all my spik-n-spanning but sooooo exhausted, too. Cleaning an entire house every day to near spotless is not an easy chore when you have a dog, 3 cats, a 3-1/2 yr old boy and a 19 month old girl! Yeesh. (Oh and did I mention that this has been basically going on since the end of March? I am ready for a break! Anyone out there like to clean and wanna come over?)

We've had the house shown 5 times since it went on the market Monday. It was shown once today already and again tonight. I'm never going to get any of my work done (Beth, you are one of them waiting patiently --- thank you!, and Corie, and . . . oh my, there's just so much work to do!), but on the other hand, maybe we are closer to selling our house? I really really really really hope so.

That's a great turnout for the realtor's tea! I'm sure your house will sell fast now. As for the cleaning, I can so sympathize. Do you have a Swiffer Vac? It's the rechargable swiffer with a vacuum attached. They cost about $35 but SOOOOO worth the money! I can do a quick clean if the realtor calls with someone wanting to view the house in 5 minutes. Much faster and easier than pulling out the big vac or trying to use the broom and dustpan. That, the swiffer dusters, and windex cloths have saved my sanity through this selling process. I keep the Windex wipes under each sink and can do a quick clean when needed. I can get the house presentable in less than 5 minutes, with another 5 needed to throw the toys and misc crap in an empty laundry basket that I hide in the trunk of my car. HTH!

Val, you take your time on our pictures. Of course, I am dying to see them, but put your efforts into selling that house! :)
19 realtors sounds like a lot to me! And, that fact that it has been shown 5 times since Monday also sounds good to me. Of course, I have no experience in buying or selling houses, so what do I know?!?
Here's to mops, dust rags and Clorox Wipes!!!!
