Well, our house is on the market, and listed as "For Sale". We got all of our items moved to the self storage unit, so that we could show the place, and for the past week, we have been working on getting the cosmetic things done, like miscellaneous painting, cleaning up the yard some, and some minor repairs. We had one showing so far, and the guy who went through, left a comment that he didn't want to deal with these little cosmetic details, even though our listing states that we will have them all done by settlement signing.

We are still believing that our house will still be sold and under contract by the end of August, so that we can make the deadline on the other house. We still need the prayers for a quick sell, and for a smooth transaction. Thanks again for all the prayers and help, and I'll try and keep you guys posted as time allows.

Take Care,
Troy

Troy, good to hear you have the house on the market and things are moving along. Something that may help you, I've done this twice in a row but the wife and I brain stormed about people we know that might want to buy our house for either an investment or as in the last case to run a business out of. I went and talked to them and offered a price minus 3/4 of Realtor's fee off and it worked. I mad a little bit more and they felt they got a good deal. All that was involved was a lawyer.

Good luck with the sale and the move. I hate moving. IF I ever get rich and buy a new place I am leaving everything here and buying new stuff. :bounce:

Thanks again guys for all of the prayer help, and please keep them coming. We had a showing Saturday of last week, and thought we might have the house sold, but turned out that the buyers credit was terrible, and he couldn't get a loan. We are planning an open house Sunday of next week, from 1-3, so we are believing things will work out from that.

Well, nothing new, other than another open house this coming Sunday, and I reduced my selling price by $4,000.00. The open house this past Sunday, had three couples show up: first couple had no comments, second couple said the house is just a little too small for thier needs, and the third couple said they didn't like the parking situtation and they liked the location of another house better.

Didn't really want to drop my selling price, but I guess in order for me to get the home sold, I have to do what I have to do. To all of you sending prayers, another big THANK YOU, but please keep them coming. I have until the end of August to sell my house, in order to get the new place, so I still need as much help as I can get. I'll try and give another update after the open house this Sunday, and hopefully I'll be able to report that the house is sold.

Thanks again guys! I really appreciate all of you sending prayers, and willing to help!

Troy

Well, we had another open house yesterday, and not one person showed up. Really frustrating!!! So we are going to lower our price one more time, another $4,000.00, and see what happens. Keep praying guys. This will be my last and final price drop. If we don't get people interested in the next couple of weeks, I'll be forced to take the house off the market, and give up on the other house. I'm still believing our house will be sold. I know sometimes God waits until the last minute to give blessing, as a way of testing our faith, but it's hard for me, since I was never a last minute person.
