No matter how hard we've been busting our butts on the house, it seems like it has become one step forward, two steps back. With both of us holding down full time jobs and trying to get everything done while the clock it ticking, it feels like we'll never get it all done. We don't really have the time to hold a garage sale or sit around waiting for someone to buy our stuff off of Craig's List. To make matters worse, two houses have gone up for sale on our street! Now we have competition, too. It has been keeping us awake at night.
While the upgrades and sprucing up of the house are going well, getting rid of stuff to make the house presentable has been our biggest hurdle.
Thanks to our friends Mike and Terri Young, we've contacted a company that they used to help them get their house ready for sale, Caring Transitions. They are a company that will come in, help you remove unwanted stuff, price and stage the house contents for sale, hold an estate type sale and then remove any leftover items. They charge 35% of the net profits from the sale of items.
This will work well for us, it gives us a helping hand right where and when we need it. Can you say PHEW!
