We have had quite the rain and wind the last several days, because of HER:
Our first weekend to show the house and it rained Bostons and Tabby Cats.
Lots of flyers have been picked up (now they are soggy and we have to wait for drier weather to replace them - rain predicted for next several days - but about 30 have been taken from "take one") and that gives us hope that maybe potential buyers are waiting for better weather to come see Boston Manor.
Three separate hardy parties showed up to look at the house nevertheless. Super nervous (well, I was, not Mr. T aka, "Nerves of Steel") for first one, but once that one was under our belt, we knew what we had to do (shuttle Bostons, in rain in this case, across street to kind neighbor's bathroom. Check all mirrors and faucets and shine if necessary. Straighten beds, pillows on couches. Keep counters clutter-free. Last look at floors for dirt. Accent lights on, if dark, which it was day and night. Scoop litter. Scoop the backyard. Put smiles on faces.) and it worked like clockwork three times.
Our viewers were very kind in their comments - we couldn't go outside, so we tried to remain available but invisible in the family room. All really liked the backyard (which they couldn't go out in because of rain, but said they would come back for second look), open floor plan, bonus office/laundry area and even complimented our decor.
So, I call it a successful first run
. Will they call back? Will we get more traffic next weekend? Will Debby go away?
Oh, and this turned up in one of our next door neighbor's yards on Saturday.
Working our signage.
And that's all I'll say about that!
Here's to a good week for everyone!
