I took some more photos for the realtor’s online Multiple Listing website. The Remax realtor has been only so-so about these things and I had requested better photos for the online viewing. Many people DO check out the listings online before they go house hunting, but my particular agent isn’t all that tech savvy or else she is just more interested in selling houses priced in the $500,000 and up range. Here are some photos I’m sending to the company’s employee who is in charge of the online virtual tours of homes on the market.
I have “uncluttered” my rooms so much, I’m having problems in finding stuff. Friend Elaine came over to drive us out for dinner a couple of weeks ago and asked me where husband Leonard was (she meant the container with his ashes). I had to think hard. I’d moved the ashes and a nice small olive wood carved statue of Jesus the Good Shepherd from their usual places on an end table…it took a couple of seconds to remember but then said before thinking how it would sound, “Oh, he’s in the hall closet with Jesus.” Elaine burst out laughing and came back with, “Well, good! Maybe they can talk to one another in there.” We’ve both lost our husbands but not our sense of humor, thank goodness!
My front yard looks really nice this spring with all flowers coming up and the tree and lilacs blooming. I’ll add some photos of the kitchen, bedroom, office, family room and other bathrooms…but this is a start. If the agent with whom I signed doesn’t do anything, I’ll get someone else at the end of June. I’d really like to relocate during nice weather if possible….and have the girls take the furniture they’d like of the pieces I won’t be keeping. In the meantime, I’m keeping fit by exercising 3 or more times a week at the cardiac rehab center….for selling one’s home and moving is darn hard work!
