I just want to thank all of you who commented with tips on selling a house. I really appreciate it! I signed up online with LifestyleMoves Realty Referral. Through that, I had two agents call me. One is from Remax and one is from ERA. They both have webpages and look pretty good. One actually sold the house next door to us so I need to talk to our new neighbor. Both guys sound pretty good over the phone. One is probably in his 40's and one is late 20's. I was more impressed by the late 20's guy on the phone. We have an appointment with one on Friday and another on Monday. Then we decide. We are going to Ireland June 8th and will be gone for 2 weeks so I don't want to put the sign up until we get back. (And of course when the sign goes up, St. Joe goes in the ground head down.)
Oh and for you Bob the Builder fans--he had promised to buy a light fixture for the bedroom that he "painted" last summer. When we got back this spring, guess what? No new light fixture. So, we went out and bought one and called him to come install it. Of course, no answer so Mr. Snowbird left a message. And of course he hasn't returned our call yet. More on the Bob the Builder saga later.
We did need some gutter work done so we called a Gutter Guy. He didn't return the call but showed up on our doorstep the next day. Then returned a couple of days later and fixed everything. No muss, no fuss, no Bob the Builder saga. Now that's the kind of contractor I like!!
