All of those articles you're reading about the current slowdown in home sales? They would seem to be right on target. In 12 days, we've had two showings. This for a house that sold within the first week the last few times it's been for sale. Our realtor called today and assured me it's just the market. He held an open house at another listing Sunday, on the same block as two other open houses, hoping to draw buyers to look at several in one stop. No one came. Almost unheard of.
Naturally, my inclination has been to keep everything shiny and bright, fresh and showable on a moment's notice. (*M'am. I'm a realtor from Rinkydink Realty and I have a buyer who's interested in seeing your house. Would that be possible, today? Great!...We're in the driveway.*)
Today, instead of sitting here drumming my fingers on the tabletop, I decided to cook something up. Want to stop by for a piece of cake?
