Clean House

09 Aug

So today we had our first home “showing” in nearly one month. July was extremely slow for showings, which made it a good time to get a new roof, new carpet, new closet doors and the deadwood removed from my backyard trees. Hopefully the people who came over will like the house and want to buy it. But I’m not holding my breath. I think everyone’s just a bit nervous right now with the economy and the housing bust. I also think people are waiting for the market to bottom out before they buy. It also might be that first-time home buyers who would likely be our potential buyers are having a harder time getting the credit they need. Or it might be that they just don’t like our house and think they can get something better! Who knows?!

In any case, I am grateful to have showings because it forces us to clean and organize our house. I’d like you to believe that our house is always immaculate, but that just isn’t the case. Like most people, we constantly fight against the clutter and struggle to keep up with our messy children. So having a reason to clean (to fool potential buyers into thinking that we’re not slobs) is a good thing. I feel much more comfortable in a clean house and wish I could always keep it clean. I’d say we do fairly well considering what we’re up against. If we could only afford a maid…

    It’s always a struggle to keep a house clean with a bunch of little kids. You guys are really good at not hoarding clutter.
