Holding Our Breath

After over 35 showings of our house, yesterday we had a young couple return for a second look at the house.  That's never happened before.
  
Even more encouraging is that the lady of said couple brought her mother along to see the house.  Our realtor told us they wanted the second look so they could discuss with their realtor about making an offer.  Marti and I were there to show them the house again and "mom" liked the unfinished basement.  :cO

After a quick tour with them, Marti and I left them alone so they could spend whatever time they needed to review the house.

The bottom line is this could either be a very good thing, or I've just jinxed ourselves by even mentioning it.  We haven't heard anything yet but hope to hear either a yes or no next week.

If all else fails, we had another realtor show the house a few hours after the couple left and in about another hour, we need to beat feet because another potential buyer wants to see the house.

Holding our breath!

  3. Wow this is GREAT! A serious upswing in traffic. Buyer #1? Buyer #2? Buyer #3? Maybe they will all get anxious worrying that the other one might get the house. IT'S ABOUT TIME!! What HAVE they all been waiting for??
    SO glad to hear this!

  5. When you know people are coming try turning up the heat a bit to make the house warm and inviting and how about a little pot pouri simmering away to give the folks that really homey feeling when they walk through the door. Some well placed lamps for soft lighting effects and maybe a bit of soft ambient music in the background to create a mood buyers cannot resist. Crazy ideas? Hmmmm, no I don't think so:))

  15. Okay. Did you have freshly baked chocolate chip cookies for any of them? Was the house full of a baked cookie smell? If you don't get offers, try the cooking baking thing next time. LOL! Isn't this house selling business just a roller coaster!?

  16. trick if you don't already know it. DON'T TRY ON A HOT BULB OR IT WILL EXPLODE! On a cold light bulb put a couple drops of essential oil of a pleasant scent so when light is turned on it starts to lightly diffuse the scent in the room. You can try on scent to experiment before showing a house to see if it is offensive. It can be something that is different than the canned market scent found in the grocery stores and plugged in an outlet standing out like a sore thumb.
