Status Update: House for Sale…Soon

I know many of you are wondering what has been going on. Well, I mentioned in this post that we were about to be doing some work on our house. However, at the time we wanted to keep to ourselves that we were fixing it up to sell.

We don’t quite have everything ready to put it on the market, but we are getting really close. I hope we will be there in just a few more weeks.

It’s amazing how many little things need to be done to get a house ready to sale. I’ve been repainting rooms, including doors, baseboards and closets, cleaning light fixtures, scrubbing floors, and I can’t forget to mention purging. Yeah, I don’t want to pack and move a bunch of extra stuff.

We’ve even had our roof replaced. Thankfully insurance paid for that one since we had recent storm damage.

Our big project however, that we have spent hours upon hours working on, is landscaping. We have lived in this house for almost 12 years and never bothered to do any landscaping. How pitiful is that?!

As you can tell, I’ve been very busy trying to make this house look as good as possible.

But why are we wanting to sell, anyway?

For the last several years my husband has commuted an hour to work and then an hour back home almost every day. Sometimes he works long hours and this really cuts into our family time and makes his day extra long.

Of course, there’s also the fact that he is simply tired of driving that far every day.

Our hope is that the house will sell quickly even though we know the market is slow right now. We feel if this is what God wants us to do, it will sell. Otherwise, we will accept it and know that it is not what God wants for us, or at least not right now.

If nothing else, we’ll have a great looking home. 🙂

Coming soon….No Bake Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies…
