Yay!, good luck Tribe!!
Our house hit the MLS two days ago. We had a showing yesterday, last minute. The family came twice and are putting an offer in today.
: Another showing is at 1130 today, so maybe, just maybe, we can get a bidding war.
I wasn't prepared for people to look yesterday, so a few things weren't done, paint-wise, but they were cool with it.
7/14: I spent $13 for Mexican food last night, got a $5 parking ticket while I was there. I thought you didn't have to feed the meter on Saturday.
My eating out budget is going to be a little high. I HATE to do pots and pans or clean the stove, so I will be eating out to help keep the house clean, in addition to be overwhelmed with sorting, decluttering, freecycling, packing and prepping to move with a 2.5 yr old, while DH is out of town. We've moved an avg of every 14 months over the past 11 years, but this is the first move with an active child. It's substantially different than the moves we've made in the past, even though I've packed and loaded a truck (boxes, anyway, not furniture) by myself before.
In the interest of saving cash, we have renovated our home on a strict budget. We got a nice stainless fridge for $750 last year, it was on sale, but not a total steal. For Black Friday, we got a $300 DW for $70. We put "Pergo" (offbrand) down throughout the first floor for $0.87/sf on clearance at Lowe's. We painted the kitchen with leftover paint, so spent no money. We paid $50 to replace the ripped fake grass on the front porch with outdoor berber that is gorgeous and coordinates with the brick's mortar color. We did not have time to paint the second floor, but the paint is only 3 yrs old, so it's not too bad, it's just that two bedrooms are an ugly mauve, IMO. We wanted to paint them light tan. Oh well....too bad, only so much time.
Off to be productive.............
