Stew's car is playing up again.
So he took today off work and is dropping his car into the garage first thing this morning.
This kinda works out well as we have a Real Estate Agent from another company coming to talk to us this morning. Hopefully she can give us some answers/opinions on our house selling predicament.
And if she sounds like a good option, we will be trying to get out of our 'Exclusive Contract' with our current Agent ( the contract is due to expire on March 31st).
So, a lot could happen today.
If we do decide to change agencies, and can get out of the contract, we will probably take a 2-3 week 'break' from marketing. We feel we need that. It's been full on for 9 months now and I'm just run ragged. And I'm not the only person stressed to the max over this. Stew is too.
He hasn't said too much over the months about how stressed out he is, but I know he is. It is incredibly hard on him having to cope with a new, very stressful job, commute daily and still 'be here' for me and the kids.
I wish this bloody nightmare would end.
On a happy note, today one of my dearest friends celebrates her 13th or 14th birthday? She's a bit younger than me, and is a Grandmother! lol
Being born on the 29th of February sure sucks if you only celebrate your birthday on the 'actual day'! *smiles*
***HAPPY BIRTHDAY SANDRA***
SHOCK... horror! The 'new' Estate Agent thinks we should 'stage' the living rooms too.
I am really surprised. But we have had the reasons pointed out more clearly by Mary and can see where she's coming from.
She also thinks our price expectations are BANG ON, and we should not go lower. That's a comfort.
So, IF we can get out of our Exclusive Contract with The Professionals, we will be going with the new Agency and moving forward.
I have a massive headache.... not surprising actually. So stressed out over this. Not just the upheaval, but the cost! It's going to cost us SO MUCH to get this re-staged, re-marketed and so on. Hemorrhaging money.
It's been a long day. Very wet too. Kids arrived home from school looking like drowned rats.
There's been some interesting comments today. Some not so helpful, in fact some made me feel I share too much.
Must think about that.
Glad it's bedtime.
