After over 4 months on the market, several price reductions and hours and hours and hours of cleaning, we have officially closed on our old house...;-) I've been afraid to celebrate for fear of jinxing the deal. We had over 55 showings and then had two offers presented within two days just prior to Thanksgiving weekend.
We replaced all the carpeting back in August and did some touch up painting throughout the inside of the house. Both our daughters' bedrooms were kept as is - bright pink and bright blue....ugh...luckily we had only one comment made about the paint.
The buying activity in my area (Katy, TX west of Houston) is definitely picking up!!! I've been lurking for several months and know that many of you have put a lot of time and effort into selling your homes. I know you will be successful very soon. Don't pay attention to the doomers...
Happy Holidays to you and your families
By the way, we also planted a St. Joseph statue about 2.5 weeks before our offers came thru....I'm a believer...

I'm wishing some of the Doomers would change their name to St. Joseph so I could bury them in my yard.

Congrats vb - how sweet it is to have closing over!!!!
Congratulations, after such a lenghty sale you deserve a day at the spa, or at least a night on the town. :)
I too, appreciate St. joseph's ability to sell properties. I like to think my "keen" marketing stratidies may have come into play, but I am not opposed to a St. Joseph statute (or two); as my inventory of homes rises, my selcetion of statues seems to dwindle. You may want to encourage your agent to read "St. Joseph, My Real Estate Agent", an enjoyable read, and potential insight into the selling process.
All my wife wants for Christmas is a "SOLD" sign in our front yard LOL Gee she ain't askin for much is she. And YES she said a real one (I thought of that).
Both my agent and I are thinking about January/February for us to make the deal, don't know what it is it just feels right LOL It's a gut feeling thing. Congrats again!
There are only four homes left for sale in my Meyerland neighborhood.
So...where do you get a St. Joseph's statue?
There are lots of websites that sell the statue...I got mine from my mother in law. Apparently this St. Joseph has been used by many in my husbands family....;-)
Just google St. Joseph statue:
