The good thing is, we met with the RE Agent and he said we had a decent number of people come to look and a few who said they'd be here tomorrow, one phone bidder from out of state who is moving back, some of whom came back repeatedly and even bringing their parents, and all of whom were in a position to buy. Last week was 36 auctions in this area by this RE agency, with only 20% passing in.
So there are 3 ways it could go. One is that no bidding besides vendor bidding happens, it passes in and we go back on the market when it reopens in February. Option two is that we get a few bidders but nothing spectacular, we do 'negotiations' and try to squeeze them up to a better level, a process which could last 2 weeks or so. I'm hoping neither of those happens as I'm decidedly over everything feeling up in the air. Option three is that we get a few rich, eager bidders who get very competative and make me very happy.
So that's that. Trying not to think over much about it until I know one way or another what's happening. It feels rather surreal to think of moving, even though I'm eager to go elsewhere, I will miss aspects of this house and it's where a lot of "big" things in our life have happened. Nic proposed in the living room. We got married on the front porch. Laurent came home here. All his firsts have been here. All the holidays we've spent as a family have been here. It's the last place we saw Grandpa alive... after he had 2 heart attacks here, one in the kitchen and one in his bedroom, both of which scared me witless though he was fine. It's the last place Nic saw his mum awake and aware, as she was mostly in a coma while at the hospital where she passed away and it's the last place they were together as a family before the cancer took over. It's where Bella is buried, underneath the roses. And it's where Hope came home. As much as I'm eager for a new home, I'll miss seeing the places that have had such a lot of our lives in them too.
Had a great night out with Sif and everyone celebrating her and Leah's birthdays! HAPPY BIRTHDAY GUYS!!!!!
