yes, after four years of making this house our home, we are selling it. close friends and family already know, but tripper has decided to start his own agency. i really want this to be an exciting chapter in our lives and not a financially stressful one, so we are looking to downsize a bit for a more affordable mortgage.
to get ready for the sale, our awesome agent, holly, brought in a stager. she had only two suggestions for us—replace the carpet upstairs (thank you, alex’s nose!) and get a larger bathmat in the master bedroom. everything else she thought was perfect. in fact, she offered me a job on the spot!! ha!
once the carpet was in, we had a professional photographer come and take pictures of the house. it’s fun to see how someone else sees your home. they turned out lovely. in fact, i didn’t even recognize the boys’ bathroom!!
the house got listed friday afternoon and we’ve had three showings so far. please keep your fingers crossed for a quick sale!! we need to sell this house and close on a new one before the end of january. small window—yipes! if all works out and we are able to sell, i will truly miss this special house. so many memories made here. but i know another adventure is just around the corner …
