Dinette KitchenToday the parade started at our home for sale in the Somerset neighborhood of Bellevue, WA.  Our real estate agent reported that 48 couples toured the property, and six more checked it out since the house went on the market last Friday.  Interest is high, feedback is favorable, and hopes are high that offers will be forthcoming.  There have been strong expressions of interest in these first few days, and that is good news.  Mother Nature even cooperated and delivered a sunny day.  Gotta love that.

I visited the property this evening to vacuum myself out of every room for those who elect to visit again tomorrow or in the days ahead.   We’ve done right by this house.    We have cared for it lovingly.   It is ready to welcome the perfect, qualified, respectful buyers who will love it as we have and make their own wonderful memories.

As we prepared our home for sale, our real estate agents suggested that we have the home professionally inspected and that we attend to any items on the “honey do” list before bringing it to market.  We did that.   The house is truly in move in condition.  Heck, if we didn’t love our current home as much as we do, we’d be tempted to move back in.

But we won’t. We’ve moved on just in time for someone perfect to move in.  Still, it is an odd feeling to be wishing and hoping and wondering about what will happen next.   We shall soon see.
