Talk About Moving

Since this is the first Tuesday of the month, it's Home Tour week over at Talk About It Tuesday. Since our house is up for sale and we're hoping to move by the end of summer I figured I would talk about moving and selling our house. If you want to see some pictures of the inside of our house, check out my Tackle It Tuesday post.

First, let me just say that I hate moving. It's such a hassle and my one dog does not take it well at all. Since we have started boxing up some of our "stuff" and moving it to storage, she has gotten very neurotic. To the point that she is now losing clumps of hair on a daily basis. She did this the last time that we moved and I don't understand it. We try to reassure her, but it doesn't seem to help.

There is so much stress involved in selling your house and looking for a new one. There are so many unknowns. Right now we are planning for this to be our last move for a very long time. Our next house needs to be the one we plan to stay in until we hit retirement. This will be the house that our daughter and any future children grow up in. So we need to love it, or at least the potential of it. We have two prospects right now which is a good thing. Now we just need to get our house under contract.

It's a little sad for us to be saying goodbye to our current home. It's been a great house and it is the house that our daughter first came home to. But hubby and I both feel like it is time for us to move on. The big unknown of where we will be living come fall is a bit stressful. Still, I feel like it will all fall together in time. We're taking a leap of faith here, hopefully we're doing the right thing.

Does anyone out there have any tips on getting your house to sell? I'd love to hear tips and tricks that have worked for others recently. With the way the real estate market is right now we'll take all the help we can get.
