Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish. ~John Quincy Adams
As I mentioned yesterday, our house is finally on the market. We listed it on Monday, it went online on Tuesday, the sign went in the yard on Wednesday and we had 5 showings from Thursday - Sunday. It was a bit wild. We've had 3 days off with no showings but have another one scheduled tomorrow. And I'm hoping for more this weekend.
But, am I satisfied? Nope. Family and friends that have walked through the house have all said that it will sell quickly. I've looked at many other houses myself and our house is certainly in better condition and more updated than most of them. It is truly move-in ready. And we've had so many showings right away. Our realtor said the response to our listing was crazy - as in good crazy. But, am I satisfied? Nope.
I have no patience. I just don't. It's a character flaw, I'm sure. I just don't like the unknown. I feel as though I'm a fish on a line - just waiting for someone to jerk me one way or the other and I don't like it at all. I don't know how people go through this for months and months. I'm barely surviving it for 10 days.
So, that quote up there? I'm adopting it today. Nothing has to be decided this very minute.
Tomorrow would be good, though. ;)
