Blog 11 Putting the California House on the Market

Our realtor said it was first about price, and then a beauty contest.  So we priced conservatively and never had the house looking better.  And we had a great view of Mt. Diablo to the east.

Sure enough, after only a few weeks a decent offer came in that we accepted and the “offer pending” notice went up in front of the house below the “for sale” sign.

Little did we expect that our qualified buyer would run into the same credit crunch affecting the world at large, but they did.  The offer was withdrawn one month later, and our house no longer could win a beauty contest, in fact it would probably come in near last.  We had begun packing and holding a series of garage sales.  Stuff was strewn pretty much everywhere.
