I woke up this morning and Nancy was already on the treadmill. It was certainly cooler and windy today, so Nancy had decided on an indoor walk. I did my walk outside and she was right it was really breezy!!
Nancy had to work at 11am, so I resigned myself that today would be an easy day. Just some routine cleaning and housekeeping to be sure all is ready for the next potential buyer. About 11:45 the phone rang and it was our Realtor.
We have had 13 showings in the three months we've had the house listed with him. No showings in the last couple of weeks. After a lengthy conversation with him, I agreed to lower the price of our home again to attract more showings and hopefully, an offer or two. His argument was that with all the showings we have had, we should have had some offers. We haven't! That tells him based on his experience that we are at least 5 to 10 percent high on the price. We are relying on his expertise and experience to get our home sold. So we need to lower the price ;o((
I was reluctant to agree to the price drop without calling Nancy at work. However, I also know how she feels about selling the house... Just Do It.... Get It Sold... Get Her Retired!!!
I kept thinking about our time at Cheraw State Park last week and how we just love the RVing lifestyle. I also was doing some mental calculations and analyzing how much the house was costing us each month :-( How long were we willing to stick to our listing price?
Deep down I know the sooner we sell this place, the better we both are going to be. The market still stinks, but we aren't getting any younger. It is time to get this show on the road!! I hope our Real Estate Agent is right about his analysis. Only time will tell.
To lighten my frame of mind, I spent an hour or two on the Internet looking at RVs. That's always a pick me up! When Nancy got home I told her what I did. As expected, her reply was "What took you so long? Just do what you need to do to sell the house!!"
