FIRST OPEN HOME TODAY....

And I think we are ready! Stayed up very late last night getting all the jobs done, floors washed etc... today all I have to do is vacum and do the breakfast dishes... and turn on the breadmaker at 9am so the bread is finished just before the Open Home.


I hope we get a good turn out... I'm not expecting to get it sold today of course.... even though that would be FANTASTIC, it is totally unrealistic.


Further on the Advertising saga... there are 4 Adverts 'out there', two on the net and two in print, and each and every one says something different.... 5 bedrooms & two bathrooms, 6 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms, 5 bedrooms & 1 bathroom..... GRRRRR I am livid! So if they think I am paying for them they can get stuffed!!! The only one that is accurate is one on the net: www.harveys.co.nz, ID Number 702 ... for anyone who wishes to have a look.


I am not expecting to get around the blogs today, hardly read any yesterday either.... I will catch up with all of you TOMORROW! Right now.... I'm waiting for me Latte in bed, then it will be GO GO GO.....

  9. woo hooo, that is absolute the best result ever. I am so happy for you, (wish mine would have gone like that, boo hoo, lol) but pleased for you though.
    What a great result, I can imagine how relieved you must be, as the prospect of doing oodles of open homes (and ALL the cleaning that goes with them) is a daunting tast.
    Yipeeeee, doing a little happy dance for you.

  11. Congratulations on selling your house so quickly. Thank god you don't have to keep baking the bread, that would not have been very good for your diet!

    Just goes to show that all the work you have put into decorating over the last few months has been oh so worth it.

    Go on have some bubbles!

    Cheers

  22. Congrats on the offer!! Hope everything goes smoothly till Friday. I took a peek at your ad...looks like a lovely home and wow, nice lawns and grounds and so green.

  23. Started to snicker when I read the "naked boy/naked girl" comment. Reminds my why I moved out 3 days after my high school graduation! Ha!

    Sending you good vibes for house selling. You can throw a coffee mug in the mircowave with water and cinammon - heat it and the house smells amazing for a long time. Throw 10 seconds on the microwave every now and then to get some more good smells! It fools them every time. Ha.

    Take care!!!

  24. That was fantastic news!! I am sure you will fly through the builders report .... I hope everything else is just as easy for the big move!!!

  25. Wow! Congrats on selling the house. All your hard work has definitely paid off. I can't believe you sold it on the first open for inspection, that is unbelievable!

    Now the fun begins... house hunting in Auckland. These next few months are going to be so exciting for you and your family!

    Also- lol re: Mike and naked girl!!!
