Please forgive me. I'm a bit behind in my blog visiting. It's certainly nothing personal. You see, I'm preparing my house to sell. This essentially means making it look not lived in when, in fact, I'm living here. "Declutter, declutter, declutter" my realtor says. I live in a 700 sq-foot place. Where am I supposed to put it? She said I could store it in her basement, which is really nice of her, but I'm afraid I'll forget it when I move. Plus, I'm really stressed about once I get it that way to KEEP it that way. Nothing on my desk? But it's my DESK. I need papers and stuff. No card table? How will I do my Hawaii scrapbook? No alcohol on the kitchen counter? But after all this, I may need easy access. :)
We looked at the 2 other condos who are my "competition" yesterday. I'm probably a bit prejudiced, but mine looks WAY better. More light, better balcony view, top floor, vaulted ceilings, looks decorated (one of the condo competition was definitely a GUY condo. Leather couch, BIG TV and a daybed with a Redskins blanket on it and THAT's it!). But my realtor still wants to price it below those two condos, which was a bit disappointing money-wise. I thought maybe I could swing some extra cash to make rennovations to my new home when I buy it - looks like I'll be hitting even. Sigh. Meeting with the loan officer Tuesday to see if maybe he can work his magic and get me better numbers. But I like my current mortgage company, who has also pre-approved me, so we'll see.
So I'll spend the weekend scrapbooking like crazy to get it done so I can store the card table, and decluttering some more. Off to get some boxes.
