In the works
Things are moving on the home front. We met this afternoon with a realtor who looked around our house and gave us his opinion on selling it. He seemed to think that we should be able to get our top asking price for it and that it would sell relatively quickly, even in this economy. Our location saves us again. Even though we are a single family home, we are in a high density zoning area and evidently properties in this zone don't come up for sale often. He pointed out some of the things we already knew- we need some painting and minor cosmetic repairs before we put it on the market. He also gave us his opinion on the property we have been looking at. He seemed to think that what we are thinking about offering is reasonable and encouraged us to make an offer soon, since more people are out looking when the weather warms up. He also reminded us that acreages this close in don't come up often. We're beginning to prepare our offer. I think we want to go look again before we submit it and take the children along this time so they can see what we're getting into. Things may be moving quickly from here on out. I'll keep you posted.
