Realtor reality check
The party is over!

Well, it was nice to postpone returning to reality for a while, with all the wedding festivities. But today we had a sobering chat with our realtor. Back down to earth! Our new realtor -- this is number four in the series, and hopefully the fourth time's the charm -- is a pretty sharp guy and he gets where we're coming from. He's not trying to convince us to put tens of thousands of dollars into renovating the place. He doesn't sugar-coat his conversations. He does lots of research and networks with other "top producer" realtors in the area. But the news is pretty bleak. Citing recent reports from Moody's and predictions from Ben Bernanke and the like, our realtor basically told us that the housing market is in bad shape and is not expected to get any better in a lonnnnnng time. As in, not till 2014. Fantastic.

OK, so where does that leave us? Well, we're gonna keep plugging away and see what kind of interest our realtor can drum up. We have a spanky new brochure. And the house is listed in the MLS and on Realtor.com, and we even put something up on Craigslist (every little bit helps). Over the weekend one of my cousins suggested we should ask for help from The Lord. Hey, stop laughing! I just may give it a try. Can't hurt, can it? (Well, there is the matter of that lightning business...) Every little bit helps. Say it with me three times.

Seriously, any and all leads would be appreciated. You never know where that magic connection will come from. And despite all the dire predictions, the economy's doing pretty well and the DC job market is really strong right now. So there's gotta be *somebody* out there who thinks this house is right for them! ::: sigh :::

Hang in there this is a hard market to sale a home. But with the right asking price who knows. Thinking of you. Ashanti and Brian
