Four weeks into having a house on the market and I am totally over it. Four weeks ago I was the positive one, the one who believed that there were heaps of people out there who would just love to live in our home.
Four weeks ago, I believed that having 60 days to sell our house would be more than enough time.
Four weeks ago, I believed that by the end of February we would be in our new home, planning where we were going to build for my folks.
Four weeks ago, I was naive enough to believe all of the above.
Four weeks on I have come to the realisation that I am no longer that positive.
Four weeks on I have come to the realisation that I don't know if there is anyone who wants to live in our home.
Four weeks on I have come to the realisation that people don't read adverts properly. Nowhere on the advert is 'Living on water' mentioned or even implied and yet people turn up each week to our open house and leave, disappointed, because it isn't on water. I guess they thought it was a real bargain at that price on water !!!
Four weeks on I have realised that I am not as patient as I thought I could be.
Four weeks on I just want to pull the pin on the whole thing and get back to living my life like normal instead of living around open houses and wondering about what is going to happen and when we are likely to move.
Four weeks on I don't want my lack of positivity to hinder the process but I am battling to 'keep my chin up' and remember that 'what will be will be' and that 'everything happens for a reason' - right now it all sucks big time and I am feeling miserable.
I know it's a process that has to run it's course but I feel like a petulant toddler who wants to throw a tantrum by lying on the floor and screaming the roof down.
But, because it's Tuesday and it's been forever since I have joined in with the lovely Jess from EssentiallyJess for #IBOT.
Do you have any experience in
selling your home ?
Was it a good or bad experience for you ?
Please let me know I'm not the only one
who gets impatient with things like this.
