Will Wonders Ever Cease?

Yesterday was one of the most hectic days I've had in a long time. My cell phone began ringing at 8 a.m. and didn't stop all day long. People were interested in the For Sale By Owner signs I had put up a month ago.

Since we have been in Kentucky, we rarely watch the news. With these three calls, one after the other, I wondered if it was a conspiracy or if something had changed in the world. Maybe it was the weather. Whatever it was, it succeeded. Yesterday evening around 4:30, we sold one piece of property. Yeah! We have three more to go, but it could all be one or it could be two parcels.

This has been a long process for us. I was a real estate agent for several years and from my knowledge, I thought it would be best to list with an agent. That was a mistake. Most people do not trust real estate agents. Thinking the one I picked was the best, I soon found out it was a lazy agent.

My husband and I realize this is not the right time to sell, but we need to sell the property. It is so far from us and if we rent, we can't keep an eye on things. This is two of the rental houses that sold. One we had used for storage and the other we rented.

We still have another person interested in the brick house, the one we lived in, and the land behind it. I'm hoping we can get everything settled in a few days, but knowing people like I do, it will be longer.

This takes a lot off me and my writing. Now I can concentrate on what I'm doing. That is after I have a huge yard sale. That's next week. My house is finally coming into shape.
