We now enter the Seller's Phase of Tidy Living which will go on until we close. That's that part where you run around wiping every water spot on every faucet and straighten towels to within an inch of their lives. The dog and cat don't understand why I keep putting away their toys (so far they think it's a fine game) and the husband is learning to be patient when I keep hiding his little drifts of paperwork/keys/needfuls clutter in inconvenient places. But that's what it takes--we've sold a few houses and this is how it works best.
The neutral walls and carpet would work so much better if I had brighter stuff out, but all my bright stuff went to storage in the Decluttering Campaign, so for the now, it'll just be Move In Ready Neutral. I hope buyers have plenty of imagination if they like color. But as neutral as it is, the house shows pretty well this way--wide open and almost ridiculously spacious--without all my millions of little tables, baskets, boxes, etc. to clutter it up. So.
Here's our house, in her MLS glory:
|Our house (admittedly this was taken in greener times.)|
|From the front door.|
|A view OF the front door.|
|Dining room and my collection of adopted chairs.|
|We have really loved this floor plan.|
|Kitchen from the dining room.|
|Kitchen from the family room.|
|Family room off the kitchen.|
|The office (aka Command Central).|
|Bedroom A. (Hubs made the bed for our SCA camping.)|
|Bedroom C. (was my doll studio, now HUGELY reduced.)|
|Master bath & garden tub.|
|Peaking out from under the carport in the back.|
|Grandpa Live Oak and a yard where we've spent some good times.|
We'll miss this place--four years is our record for living in one house.
But we've got a new chapter coming up, and we are ready to begin it!
Hope your week is busy being fabulous.
