We signed with our realtor Tuesday in a rather exhausting three hour session of talking, learning, and signing papers.
Today we are finishing up the house photos so the MLS listing will be up tomorrow in time for the weekend. Taking photos is easy enough --between the realtor and us we can get plenty of pictures --but getting ready to take the photos is hard work. It means making the final push to get extraneous stuff packed up or at least moved out of the room long enough to get a streamlined photo.
I quite like this uncluttered look. I guess we'll be living with it while the house is on the market. Maybe by the time we sell and move we'll be used to hauling the toaster out of the cupboard when we need it and picking up after ourselves constantly. Maybe we'll be used to a streamlined life and will enjoy living that way in our new Boulder home. You never know.
Over the weekend we decided to sign with Allied to do our actual move. What a hard decision that was! There's plenty of information online about the perils of long distance moving and apparently there is no fail proof way to get yourself moved across country; every method has its problems. We got as much information as we could, had a few salesmen come look over our stuff and give us estimates, and finally decided we'd do best with Allied. Wish us luck!
