Unplugged and Itching to Sell

The last four days have been spent checking and un-checking boxes in the Control Panel of my computer, unplugging, moving and resetting my modem in the hopes of re-establishing our Internet connection.  I sat on the phone with three different customer service reps over the course of no less than four phone calls.  Two different techs visited our home and replaced our modem twice.

But I think we might finally have our Internet back.

Granny Smith apples make a really pretty centerpiece on our table.

The other good news is that there is some activity to report on the house!  Last Sunday, we had a showing at noon followed by an open house in the afternoon.  We had three buyers come through and the one who requested the showing gave us some good feedback.  They said the home was in "Excellent" showing condition and that it suited their needs.  As to whether they were considering putting in an offer, the response was "Maybe."  As much as I appreciate that a "Maybe" is a heck of a lot better than a "No," it just left me with more questions than answers.  Our agent followed up with the buyer and found out they definitely had "some interest" in our house!  Of course, this turned me into a rabid obsessive constant email-checking freak of nature.  I was convinced that an offer was going to come at any moment.  Alas, it turned out that the buyers had accepted an offer on their house that still had some contingencies to work out, so they are currently unable to place an offer on another house until those are settled.

Dangit.

So, it's back to the waiting game.  Who knows?  Perhaps these folks will get those loose ends tied up quickly and will be itching to buy our house soon. 

In even better news, we just got an email tonight requesting another showing for tomorrow morning!  I've already scrubbed the floors, cleaned the kitchen, wiped down the bathroom, washed three loads of laundry, and dusted and vacuumed the whole main level.  Just a few things to finish up in the morning and we'll be making ourselves scarce in the hopes that we can pique the interest of another lucky house hunter.  I'll be sure to let you know how it goes. 

Say a prayer for us, ok?

Off to change over the laundry....again.
