Brent and I are trying to find a happy medium. We are trying to stage our home in a way that tones down our personality without losing it completely. We are walking a fine line, but I think are succeeding so far.
Last week we fell in love with a house. It was in the neighborhood we wanted, had a finished basement, a spacious main floor – it was perfect. The issue is that our house isn't market ready yet, so we are trying to kick it into high gear, and make this happen. The dream house is being sold by owner, so hopefully that will make it take longer to sell. While we don't truly believe we can get our house ready quickly and then sold on the market before the other house does, all we can do is try.
If the other house sells before ours reaches the market, we will continue getting ours ready but at a more leisurely pace. And maybe even be able to enjoy some of the work we've done so far.
