It was a nasty day. I posted signs about 6:10 in the morning and there was a slight drizzle. When I got back from my weekly run at Burke Lake with Gil and Al at 9:00, it was raining hard.
Most of the signs did not do too well. But our customers knew something was going on and I saw two cars get out and fold over the wilting wet sign to get the address...they knew they were close...
And to my surprise -- we made about $141.00! Amazing. Kelly and Pam really did a great job organizing and getting set up. What didn't sell, I took to the Manassas Salvation Army Donation Center. It is the largest one in the country!
We were hoping for a sunny day so we could talk to neighbors and garage sale bargain hunters about our Moving Sale. Our house goes on the market on Thursday and our Realtor has done a great job with the photos and flyer. In fact he posted them on the web www.4111MinstrellLane.com even before it is in the MLS. So it is a big weekend for us! No more Moving Sales and the house is almost on the market.
Today I'll pull some more weeds out of the garden, plant some more flowers and be looking forward to the Open House next weekend.
The plan is:
- List the house on Thursday
- Get other realtors and prospective buyers to see it on Friday
- Line up appointments and/or have buyers come by on Saturday
- Conduct Open House on Sunday
- Get a contract and negotiate on Monday
- Sign contract on Tuesday
- Close on house in May
We will see! These are exciting times.
We will keep you posted!
