Officially for sale…

The house has finally been listed with the MLS and is officially for sale. I chose to list with a flat fee realtor and for the fee I get quite a lot i think…

  • a sign for the yard
  • a MLS listing
  • get added to’s database of MLS houses for sale
  • a lock box for the door
  • and all the contracts and advice of a broker without the cost of a broker. 

Only time will tell if this strategy works out and here is to hoping it doesn’t take too awfully long.

So our lives will change a bit and our routines will need to be altered to ensure that the house is listing firmin ready shape.  So the morning rituals now include cleaning and staging for the hope that each day will be the day that a prospective buyer comes into the house and falls in love with it like we did.

So now that the house is listed I can refocus our efforts on finding an RV that we can call our next home…


  1. Good Luck to you. We hope your house isn't on the market long before it sales. Hope you also find the RV of your dreams for the next chapter in your life.

    Stay Safe

  2. Keeping my fingers crossed for you. What a difference a few years can make.

  3. Many many good wishes of a quick sale for you! As Dee says: sending you MOJO!
