You have to be a good pessimist first in order to be a good optimist.

Yah, I just made that up.

Feedback about the house showings: "We really like the house, but..."

The "buts" are things out of our control. One family needs to sell their house first, and it's in the same town as ours where the market is the roughest in the county. The other family thought our house wasn't private enough. For those of you who have seen the property from an aerial view (stalkers!) you can see that we're really not next to much of anything, so what I surmise is that they didn't like that there was no fence, or that the house isn't surrounded by trees, or that the house is too close to the dead end road off a dead end road. *shrug*

I am hopeful. :) In Poppy fashion. For this one day I shall claim the title of fashionista.

It has to be rough trying to sell your house. We'll hopefully be trying that sometime next year, but I don't expect it will be much fun. Your house is fab, of course, but everyone has a different idea of what they want and it is hard to find the right buyer that mostly wants what your house has to offer.

I hope you are lucky and find the right buyer soon.

Jen, it's hard. I am looking forward to being on the other side of this process. Thanks for saying the house is fab. :) It's a good house, it is. Just time to let it go.

Dawg, bull-fucking-shit, but that's kind of you.

Wah, can I help that I like frenching? (Uh, what? Oh! Frenchy! Yes! Right.)

(And yes, I should be asleep, but I'm not. Leave me alone. :p)

France is too far from the nearest Walmart. That's probably what they were thinking.

the right buyer will come along, i'm SURE of it...

Poppy Cede said...

Avi, you're a snob. And the house actually is kinda far from Wal-Mart... about 20-25 minutes.

Crys, I know. :) Patience is a virtue.

Bull's fuck shit?

I thought they fucked cows.

Poppy Cede said...

Depends on their mood. If they're feeling shitty they fuck shit.

Debasement is fun, is it not.
