I don't know.
It all went well. They loved the house. We went through every inch of it (including the Silence of the Lambs basement) in the hour they were here. We talked new roof and we talked asking price and we talked time frame. They left to "crunch some numbers". Something tells me we'll be talking more - and soon. I'm not a bit worried about that.
It's the numbers that concern me. I have no illusions of making a killing on this house - not in this market. (It's one of the few things in this divorce that I can really work myself into a fury about. If we had been able to hold onto this house for a few more years and put some money into it, we could've made a bundle. Or lived in a showcase. And I have the comps to prove it). I just want to break even. I can't sell at a loss. I have to have enough money to put a down payment on a new home for the kids (two and four legged) and me. If I can sell this house and still not have enough to buy a new one I might as well stay put.
I have a few intangibles, however, that I think tilt the equation somewhat in my direction. But right now I also have lightning really close and if something were to happen to my beloved laptop I think I might curl up and die. Check back in tomorrow for the saga of the X factor.
Here's a hint. Think love.
