Our house has now been for sale for three weeks. We've had 6 showings and so far things have been going pretty well. It's not as many as we'd hoped for, however we knew that August was typically a slow month for house sales with people getting ready for school. Most houses are typically on the market for 2-3 months in our neighborhood, so we are trying to be patient about it.
One thing we wanted to remember was our funny yellow sign. It's got a smart phone barcode thing on it so people can scan the barcode and pull up the listing on their phones. We aren't sure if many people have actually done that, however the goofy yellow sign is definitely eye-catching and we've seen quite a few people slow down and read it while they drive by.
The saddest news of the week is that our dream home in Florida went under contract. We'd been watching it for months and thought it would have been perfect for us. We had even kicked around the idea of trying to find a way to put in an offer before our house sold. We tried to be patient and missed out on this one. Hopefully another one will come along at the right time for us.
