My house listing is live.

on Tue Apr 03, 2018 9:46 pm
I'd post it but I guess this board is still public so I don't want to have randos knowing where I live.

Weird to see tho. Hopefully the process is quick.

Not yet. It's a move to get into a single family home (right now, in a townhome. Which is fine/good, but was never meant to be "permanent").

Open house was sunday, 15 visits.

Saturday there were 4, Friday there were 3, Thursday there were 3.

No offers yet D:

I hope it's soon. Every morning has sucked - wife wants the place in tip top shape before we leave every morning so it's been like...vacuuming every morning, emptying out trash (and I mean empty - not like "oh this should be emptied", but like "there's three paper towels in the trash can so we should empty it out"), not just doing any dishes in the morning but even drying out the sink so there's no dried spots on it or something, taking out claire's booster seat, bringing any laundry with us...there's a shitload of little things here and there that are driving me insane trying to keep up with.

Someone even said at the open house, "do the people even still live here?", it's that fucking spotless. I'm tired from all of these things, it's wearing on me.

I'm pretty sure half of the people who go to open houses just want to peek at your stuff (sometimes burglars casing the place for later), and almost none of them are seriously house-hunting. I've personally never even heard of an open house that got a bite. Open houses are a great way for realtors to get other clients, so they sell lots of houses because of them--just not yours. I mean...having a happy agent can be good, but don't wear yourself out for that shit.

The strategy usually isn't to grab stuff while they're there, so spare keys can be more important than valuables. They'll also do things like check to see if a back window opens, then not lock it again afterward, which a lot of people do anyway. Later, when everyone is at work or school or whatever, they'll drive up with a van and haul stuff out the front door in broad daylight, even with the neighbors watching and not realizing anything is wrong. That last part happened to me shortly after moving in somewhere. Moving is the worst.

Showings are good, so good luck there.

Got a couple of offers, not close enough to what we wanted.

Decided to lower the list price a little. We'll see if that's more enticing now.

Just kidding!

The assholes, after the inspection came back (clean as fuck, I might add), thought they could pull a fast one on us and asked for a $15k price drop. I think they wanted to get their foot in the door with a good offer, hope we were desperate to sell, then pull out the rug from under us. We told them no and they fucking walked.

It's frustrating at times but overall the pros outweigh the cons when it comes to home ownership

Jet how much are homes going for in your neck of the woods? In my area home prices are insane.

Our house is 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, about 1800 sq ft plus an additional 200 SQ ft in the finished basement
It's a townhome
And we HAD agreed to sell it for 300k

A pretty nice single family is about 500k

A "woah I feel bad stepping into this house" home is like 750-800

There are some old colonial homes in Doylestown that go for a mill just because of the history and their proximity to the center of town

the housing market is so fucked right now that the price is whatever the fuck banks are willing to settle on tbh famalam. don't show any signs of weakness, because between appraisers and contractors they will syphon that money out of you while you're trying to sell (especially a townhouse or condo)

...wtf. it's more expensive to live here. housing has more than tripled here in the past 15 years just because rich fucks want to relive their college days.

So we once again have a buyer, inspection came back okay again (couple things the first dude missed, but this guy said the jacuzzi was broken and it clearly is not, i guess he just ddn't know how to use it). Have a few things to fix but things should be moving along ok.

House sold and we moved out at the end of june (into her parents place)

Occasionally Claire says "want to go home" which breaks my damn heart but she hasn't said it as much lately, seems to be getting used to staying with mom mom and pop pop.

We've put a deposit in on a lot for some new construction. Over near Doylestown...7 minutes from the house I grew up in. Lol. Still figuring out all the details - everything is an up-charge so you gotta prioritize what you want.

party at jet's when we move in.
