Selling Our Home....

"Now is the time..."

As you all may know by now we are in the process of trying to sell our apartment.  We live downtown Fort Lauderdale.  With the market being what it is it has not been easy.  We are having lots of showings.....almost everyday but, no luck.

This process is very tiring.  We are supposed to have a 24 hours notice prior to someone coming but, lately we have been lucky if we've had an hours notice.

Even so Arvid and I do manage to get everything in order and to be ready for customers.  You've got to do what you've got to do if you want results.

It has been extremely stressful for Brutus more than anyone.  He is not your typical cat.  Brutus is just afraid of everything and everyone except for Arvid and I.  He is just so gentle and he just loves curling up around Arvid's chlorine covered feet.  Makes him feel safe. Whenever we have people coming to see the apartment, Brutus knows about it a good 10 minutes or so before they come through the door.  He is just looking at the door ready to bolt.  All of this stress had caused him to lose hair in different areas of his back.  Poor kitty his quiet routines have been altered and if you have a pet especially a cat you know how they love their routines.  Just like Arvid actually.  He is also a man of routines.....  me I like it varied and always hoping for something different....

Today we have showed the apartment 2 times same as yesterday and the day before. It has gotten to a point where we are not even making lunch at home anymore...sad because I really prefer to eat at home than to eat out.  I like cooking. Hopefully all of this showing will soon lead to a sale.....Arvid and I are forever optimistic about it....

We know sooner or later it will sell....in the meantime we are having fun!!!

"Life is a series of near misses. But a lot of what we ascribe to luck is not luck at all. It's seizing the day and accepting responsibility for your future."
until next time..
