One month in, selling our house has been, to put it mildly, super depressing. We listed it for sale on August 29th. During that time, we’ve had one showing. ONE. And that includes the zero people that came to our open house this weekend.

I had mentally prepared myself for the fact that it might take a while to sell the house. We went into this whole buying and selling adventure knowing that we could end up carrying two mortgages, living on a very tight budget for a while. And I thought I was ok with that. But, here’s what I wasn’t prepared for – that no one would even look at our house. It’s impossible to sell a house without anyone looking at it.
So here we are, 2.5 weeks away from closing on our new place to become the proud owners of two houses. Two mortgages, two electric bills, two water bills, one giant headache.
I know I should be glad that this is even an option for us, that we have the money for a down payment without selling, which enabled us to put in an offer on this new place, our planned forever home. But I’m just getting more and more stressed as we creep closer to the real estate wasteland that is the holiday season. We’ve already cut the price once and I fear another price drop will just identify us as the desparate sellers we are.
Anyway if you have any good house selling vibes to spare, send them our way, will you?
