Some of you might know that we met with our real estate agent this week about selling our house (probably just those of you who know me on Facebook). Since some of you have been asking me how it went (and by some of you, I mean two people) I figured I’d post about it.
Unless you’re new here, you know that we have wanted to move back to our home town for the last year or so. Since Rich is working at home now, there is no reason we need to stay where we are. After a year of talking about moving we finally decided that we are really going to do it.
I talked to our real estate agent (he helped us find our house when we moved here a little over 5 years ago and he was awesome!) last week. And then he came over on Thursday to look around and to tell us what we need to do and to get all of the fun paperwork done. He thinks our house looks great and we only have to fix one thing… which we already knew we had to do. The tile on the floor in entry way of our house has started to chip, so we need to replace it. Other than that- we are good to go. Of course we still have to do things like wash all of the walls and that fun kind of stuff to make our house look perfect. But we don’t have a whole lot we need to do. If all goes well our house will be for sale in the last week of this month. I will be sure to keep you all posted about what’s going on.
So- onto my advice question! The real estate agent will be coming back next week (after our floor is replaced) to take pictures. One of the areas he wants a picture of is our kitchen and he suggested using a great center piece on our table. Here’s the problem- usually at this time of year I still have my Christmas decorations out (because I love them, not because I’m lazy) but I put them all away figuring that most people wouldn’t understand. So, normally when I put my Christmas center piece away I can put out my spring center piece. But it’s not spring yet and we still have snow. So, what should I put on our table? Something springy? I’ve never been good at decorating or any of that kind of stuff, so I would love some tips and advice for something pretty to have on our table.
And also- how in the world do I keep my house spotless with a 2 year old?
