Open House #1

Our house is beautiful, and it was yesterday for our first open house. As it turns out, we only had one person show up, but we feel pretty good about it anyway, because we had an impromptu party after the open house. Joe and Lora (from cohousing) stopped by with their three kids, and then Pam (our buyer's agent for our current house) and Pete stopped by to see the house and babies. Then Dyan and Terri came back with Marion and Henry, and we all had a good time talking about real estate and other such things.

It was nice to have everyone there right after the open house, as it could have been a rather depressing time. If we were alone after the open house, we probably would have felt pretty bad about showing the house to just one person, but having a group of friends there right away really made it fun.

So, we move on from open house #1. We do the things that Pam suggested, and we work to find a buyer. Our house has only been on the market for a week or so, and there's no reason to think that we're not still going to sell it quickly. We're in good shape, the house looks great, and as soon as -the- buyer comes along, we'll have our sale.

Until then, Marion & Henry and I are going to be out of the house as much as possible. If you live around the area, and would like a visit from two cuties and their dad, let me know.
