EEEEEKKKK!! Just realised it’s been ages since we’ve last spoken. SO much happening at the moment so I’m sorry for the lack of updates! I’ve been madly fixing up my house, finishing all the last minute things that I’ve been meaning to do but haven’t quite gotten around to doing since I moved in last October. I spent the last week touching up the paint in the patio out the back, finished planting new plants in the front and hortichipping it all so it looks really nice and tidy now. Had to paint the entrance hallway and front railing too so it’s looking pretty good now. I had to declutter in the extreme for the photographers who came a week ago and even then they took stuff out so it was pretty bare. Not that I have a lot of clutter but they want it bare bones for some reason. In some cases I think it looks too bare but oh well as long as it sells!
AND dun dun dunnnnnnnnn it was listed last Monday! The photos make my place look AMAZING!! And on the first day there was already enquiries for the contract for sale which my agent sent out and there were 600+ views since it was listed at lunchtime. Today, a week later, its 2344 🙂 Had a really successful open house on the weekend with 30 groups coming out and 5 more contracts sent out so it’s certainly getting a lot of interest. And scarily enough I’ve just had a call from my agent who wanted to show someone around this afternoon who didn’t get to see it on the weekend and clearly can’t wait for next weekend’s open house! Speak o the devil and he calls you up haha. With all the interest I’ll hopefully have an offer of my magic number soon! Keep your fingers x-ed for me.
Clearly I didn’t get around to making the lemon marmalade as I’d planned to either but might give it a crack this weekend after the open house. There’s also a high protien gluten free bread recipe that I want to try out. http://www.elanaspantry.com/paleo-bread/ Looks really yummy and appeals to my tastebuds with the almond and coconut. /me drools… can you imagine the fresh bread straight out of the oven with a slathering of lemon marmalade?? mmmmmmmmmm. There’s also another property that I really like that I might go and have a squiz at on the weekend. It ticks all the boxes but looks like it’s about 10 minutes out side the buffer zone so…. might not be THE one.
Also found my dream property BUT it’s 30 mins outside the zone. http://www.domain.com.au/Property/For-Sale/House/NSW/Araluen/?adid=2010623289 Simply gorgeous.
Anyway just wanted to give you a quick update… all VERY exciting!
