We had five days to move. We put the house on the market April 1st. We had our first and only walk through April 12th, followed by an offer on April 14th, 2014. Crazy fast. We had seen trailers in our neighborhood with "For Sale" signs for at least 6 months. One of our neighbors took two years to sell their place. We expected 6 months. It was on the market for about 2 weeks.
Atherton Storage for all of their help in setting up a unit. They are the nicest people.
1 - The painted paneling basement house with the scary furnace room.
2- The crooked cupboard house. Everything about it was run down and in various stages of disrepair.
3 - The Grandma House. Complete with popcorn sealing, a laughably tiny kitchen, green linoleum floors, and brown shag carpet.
4 - The crazy Russian house. As we were greeted by a crazy Russian lady in her bathrobe who proceeded to take us on a tour of her dirty house, expect the room her brother slept in because he worked the night shift.
5 - The fixer-upper. When you walk in and see the refrigerator in the living room, you know something's up. There was also a tangled bird-nest of wiring in the back.
6 - The our house. The Fort.
The Fort was on the market 11 days. We put in a bid. Then three hours later another couple put in their bid and we got in a bidding war. With steel, skill, and heart we won that war and began the loan process.
