So much has been happening, including a roller coaster ride that ended with us listing our house. It's been 5 days and so far no showings. I'm trying to control my crazy but there is a huge part of me that is freaking out that no one wants our house and we will never sell it. Like ever.
I've gone to a few open houses and so far it's been a whomp whomp experience. I was just brushing my teeth thinking to myself how sad it is that $250k doesn't really get you a "nice" house in my area. The news was on and I overheard a story about a drive by shooting in Philly and a child was shot as she was sitting on her front porch. It was like a punch in the gut, and I realized how incredibly lucky and privileged I am. I also realize how spoiled I am.
I haven't posted her in forever, but I needed to get this feeling down somewhere...so the next time im coveting a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom I can have a little reality check.

Why are you guys selling? Do you need more space or just want to live in a different part of town?

We just need more space. Our house is only 2 bedroom and 1 bath, and while I've loved living here (for the most part) it's time for us to move on. I have such mixed feelings about actually selling and moving.

Are you moving out of the area...or just looking for a different house?

I feel you on prices, 250 will barely buy a condo here, much less a single family house with a yard.

$250k will buy a perfectly decent home in my very nice town with an awesome school district. Really I'm just being a spoiled brat. :)
