We’re coming down to the wire today, trying to get things cleaned up or cleared out before the photographer comes to take pictures for the brochure the agent will provide to those looking at our house
We’ve been moving things to the basement, boxing things up, and getting general cleaning done. The guy who came to clean the carpets worked miracles, getting out an old rust spot and a newer stain that we couldn’t identify. I made sure to praise him to the agent, who had recommended him.
Yesterday, the men came to patch the hole in the office wall, and while he was at it, he patched some nail pops that had been irritating me for about 15 years. Today they painted one wall and the ceiling. I hope things will be dry enough to return the office in time for pictures, we can always do that room last.
The house should be really clean, and lovely for Easter, but we won’t be hosting the usual family gathering. Hopefully, we can rest for a couple of days before the house isn officially listed.
I love the open areas, and the light. I love that the house shows it’s size and looks uncluttered, but it’s a very sterile look. I’ll have some serious work to do when we start opening what I’ve packed up at the next house. For sure, we won’t be keeping everything. Most likely once we have moved, all my posts will be about having to decide what to give up. If you’ve read this far, you are a very patient person, or a very good friend!
