We had our house on the market for about 4 months, took it off for 3 months, put it back on for 3 months and now it has been off for 2 months. We did have a serious offer but they wanted us out too soon and we did not have another house picked out yet. This is the beauty of not having to move, you really can choose to say no. This is also a nightmare for our poor realtor. We have lived here a little over 15 years. It is a great house, it really does accomidate our family well. We live in a sub-division but our home backs up to a very well kept field with trees and a lot of space. ( the picture is of part of our yard and part of the field) We feel like we have the best of both worlds, a sub-division with neighbors yet when we are out back we feel like we are in the country. We are centrally located to just about everything we do and to my inlaws so I have to wonder if everything is so wonderful why on earth would we sell? Well I can't answer that question except to say maybe we just need(want) a change, something different to sort of begin another chapter of life in? I find it so hard to justify a want when it is not necessarily a need. I know we don't ever want to be house poor. I don't want to look at my children when they ask if they can do something and have to say to them no, too much money, lets just look at our pretty house. Decisions, decisions, oh well so much to think about, lots to pray about, and plenty to do. And so the saga continues........ to sell or not to sell?.......
On a hopefully "lighter" note. My weight watchers has been going well this week. I can't wait to weigh in on Thurs. My goal was 3 pounds seeing as it is my first week back in a while. Normally I will just be very thankful for a loss no matter what it is.
Have a great day!!
