It's ALMOST official.

My realtor's office came by and did a walk-through of the house yesterday. Unless she's blowing sunshine up my ass, they all really liked it. They did have some "feed back" (which I'm gathering is a realty euphamism for "stuff we don't like") about the "curb appeal" but that's nothing I didn't know.

So now, we just need to sign the contract, drop it by the office, and my sweet little casita will be for sale. (yeah and sigh)

Working together, H (my realtor) and I came up with this little snippet for the "remarks" on the listing.

Step inside and fall in love with the warmth, charm, and detail of this open, solidly built home. Large windows, built-ins, and beautifully refinished floors highlight the interior, and the exterior includes a backyard that is ideal for entertaining with its unique covered patio and mature trees and lawn, plus a second patio off of the living room. Add a partially finished basement with family room and potential for a half-bath, wonderfully established neighborhood, and walking proximity to the best local schools and shopping, and this one is a no-brainer. You’ve got to see it to believe it!

What do you think? Too cheezy? Does it make you want to pay me lots of money for my house?

having actually seen your house, I can say that it describes it extremely well. I love your house, I love that it's got charm and it's just cute and warm and sunny. I don't think this description is over the top at all.

good luck. I dread selling my house only because they usually have some rule that it has to be clean all the time. people need to see BEYOND the dust. and if they can't, fuck THEM.

I think it sounds great too.

It sounds charming indeed. I'd consider buying it myself - if it weren't a bit of a commute from Philly. Good luck!

Um... my verification is JoinFkHo. Is that an organization with which you are familiar?

I'd buy it!

I am in denial that you are selling your house and leaving me behind. So, as I am denying this, I can't discuss it.
Some movies Kiri enjoyed at that age were Dennis the Menace with Walter Mathaeu, Legend (probably too scary for Soph) The Borrowers with the dude from Rosanne, A kid in King Arthurs Court, Iron Will, The Journey of Natty Gann, The Last Starfighter, The Flight of the Navigator, The Explorers, Annie, and she loved the Swiss Family Robinson, also Beatlejuice but probably again too scary for Soph. There were many many more but I can't think of them right now.

Hey, good luck. Hope it's going well with the sale. Only thing I didn't like was the "no brainer". I can't think of any purchase (especially a house) that is a no-brainer. Otherwise, a very accurate description of your home.

In case Jennifer didn't forward you the message (because I know she didn't call), check out Kodi's blog for info on possible plans for Sunday. Let's touch bases sometime this weekend. Also be curious to chat a little with you. Turns out I did get that job with Red Rock in St. George. Still not sure exactly what I'll be doing, but I do know with whom I'll be dealing.

Hope you have a great Friday.
