PHASE FIVE: THE LONG WAIT
Everything is ready. The house is clean. The plans are made. The signs are up and our stash and dash is perfected.
But the phone doesn't ring.
The housing market slumps.
And that highly anticipated rapid and insane house sale doesn't happen.
Sometimes there's no magic to it. You list aggressively, you clean like Cinderella, and you wait. You lower your price, offer incentives...and you wait.
Patience is a virtue I lack.
There are lots of tips out there for ensuring a quick house sale (like this one from HGTV). But once you've exhausted yourself cleaning out closets and mopping floors and folding your bathroom towels just so, all there is left to do is hang in there and hope and pray for the best. You still have to live in your house.
Unfortunately so does the rest of your family.
