More lessons in Real Estate

So this weekend we learned another lesson in selling your house. I have heard never get emotional, but we did. We were out with our realtor looking at houses when she said they people looking at your house want to know if you can be out by the end of the month. We thought she was joking, but she said she was serious, so we said well tell them to give us an offer and we will see. So we waited and later she called us and told us that they would be writing us an offer the following day, Sunday. So all day yesterday we sat and we waited and ran different scenerios around about where we would go and what we would do if they gave us a good offer. Only the offer never came so we worried about it all day for nothing. It is weird this selling your house thing, one minute you are on a high running different situations around and the next you are back to basics waiting and showing is a bum deal and a stressful one at that. On another note, Tom and I are thinking about building a new house in a subdivision in Avon. All the houses we have looked at are so old and would need so much updating that we are heavily weighing the options of just building new and starting more to come on that!
