Cosmetic surgery

We listed our home for sale on Friday. Our first showing was Saturday-- less than 24 hours after we listed it-- and they also gave us our first offer. It was pitiful. Honestly, I was sorry for the agent who had to write it up. Just embarrassing.

Tthough I'm still convinced we priced it very aggressively, I enjoyed this walk down memory lane. This house has endured a complete cosmetic surgery in the three short years it has become our home.

Here's what we bought....

And here's what we're selling. (That big old Ash tree was over taken by the Emerald Ash Borer. Sad.)

 The master bath we bought (and lived with for almost 3 years...)

 The master bath we're selling...

The hideous kitchen...

And the sweat equity... plus the enlarged doorway...
(not to mention new floors, appliances and light fixtures.)

And last, but certainly not least, the dining nightmare room...

Lovely, if I do say so myself.

So, Mr & Mrs Buyer. Offer us more than 87% on day one of our listing, and we might take you seriously.
