Week 721 - Lockdown Over, Let's Go! - 06-07-2020
Lockdown Over, Let's Go!
We are sure that, like us, you are so ready to leave the house get out into the world.
You've been waiting for months, but we've been waiting since last July for someone to buy our house.
Our stay here for 10 months is longer than any place in the last 15 years.
We have cleaned every corner and polished every knob.
We first advertised "For Sale by Owner" in October; not a good time for home sales.
Zillow showed about a dozen lookers per day. Then came the lockdown and no one came.
But, in the last few weeks, Zillow showed 30, 40, 55, 64 and 85 visits on a single day.
It is looking good and we can't wait to see what the Lord has for us.
We have never bought or sold a house. As many know, being in "In Escrow" means you are just getting started.
The buying family is from Bend, Oregon and only saw the house through their realtor's live video tour and a little facetime with us. They will come in person soon. We pray that they will be the ones. But, we are trusting the Lord regardless. He has always taken care of us.
So for now, Woohoo!
With love, Pete, Ellen and Mandy
