Well, we signed a contract with a new Realtor this week . . . she's supposed to be the best (#1 in the county), and sells lots of higher priced homes, so we're hoping this works. She needs all the help she can get, though, so we also buried Saint Joseph today, too!
In preparation for going back on the market, we were busy just before Easter . . . I painted and "de-countrified" the kitchen, and we installed new flooring. This is something that EVERY realtor mentioned when they came here, so we broke down and did it . . . I hope it pays off!
These are the "before" pictures of our living room and breakfast nook:
And now we have the "after" pictures of the same rooms:
OK, so the wood floor makes a huge difference in the look of the rooms, but I still wouldn't have wanted it when my kids were little. I do like it now, though! These are just my pictures, not the "staged" ones done by the professional -- the photographer will be here on Monday, and then I guess we go "live" on realtor.com.
Wish us luck, and keep us in your prayers that we find a buyer this summer!
