We're doing this again? Seriously?

Tonight we signed the papers to list our house for sale. Ugh.

Even though it's been three years, it still feels like we just did this and the thought of keeping the house spotlessly clean 24/7, having random realtors ring our bell at odd hours, and experiencing the frustration of showing after showing that doesn't result in an offer leaves me rather cold. I. Don't. Want. To. Sell. My. House.

It's not even that I'm resisting the move as much as I'm resisting all the crap we have to do in order to get to the place where we can move. Selling the house is really just the tip of the iceberg, and this listing means getting the ball rolling on things like quitting my job, finding a new one, renting a new house, etc...

Anyway, I'm once again soliciting good house selling thoughts. In this market, we're really going to need them.

I don't envy you. Good luck.

Oh man. I'm sorry. I will send you all the good house selling thoughts that I can, but with the luck we had I hope they work better for you than they did for me!

Here's just the thing: Plant a St. Joseph statue in your front yard. You get them at a Catholic supply store and don't worry- they come with directions just for this very purpose!!
Do you know where you'll have to move to? I'm sorry to have you leave El Paso!!!
