Returning to Earth.
As is with most major things that happen in our life, we had very little warning that our house was going to sell. It really wasn't even on the market. It was a pocket listing. And by pocket listing I mean, I had a few friends express interest in in a very casual, 'if you ever decide to sell, call us first" kind of way. One of those friends started a FSBO site and asked to use the photos from our VRBO listing (hey I'm not one turn down 2k during a concert weekend!) for a "listing" on the new site. I said sure and thought nothing of it. Until a former photography client of mine saw the photos a couple weeks later and asked to come look at it. They came on a Friday evening and we had an offer by Sunday morning at almost full asking price with additional money to keep all the furnishings. The closing took a few months while they sold their house, and it was extremely appreciated because when you really haven't entertained the thought of selling your home, having a while to process letting go of a project you conceived and birthed, not to mention the place your daughter walked her first steps, it took some time to adjust to.
