Good Bones Home

We bought our first home together because it has "good bones." Now we're trying to bring them out, one project at a time.

For Sale September 8, 2010

Filed under: Home — Stephanie @ 1:28 pm

We are still not talking about the future dream home of wallpaper and outdated appliances, even though the inspection went quite well, because talking of such things before you have jumped through the billion hoops of financing can jinx them. But I can tell you this, our little row home, the home we first lived in together, that we came home to after we were married, that my dear husband has been living in for eight years…it is for sale.

Living in a home that’s on the market is a stressful experience. Living there with three of the world’s hairiest pets will drive you off the deep end. We spent a week and a half fixing up our home in every free second, getting it clean and decluttered and beautiful. Now we try and stay ahead of the pet fur and litter and crumbs of food they are tracking everywhere. Of course, all of this is in vain right now, as despite nine days on the market, not one person has looked at our home. I can’t believe it! It’s so pretty!  See?

Right now we remain fingers crossed that someone will eventually decide to look at our place, fall in love, and take it off our hands, leaving us with only one home and the money to renovate it.  So send us your home selling vibes!  (Or, alternately, if you know anyone in the Philly ‘burbs looking for a place, send them our way.)
