Waiting for the Sale

It's been a hot summer in Michigan, a good time to go barefoot and just put on your shorts and a tee shirt every morning. I'm thankful we can be at our summer home, where we enjoy time with grandchildren and their parents.

Meanwhile, emails from our realtor keep us up to date on showings of our house. We have had quite a few showings, but none have come back for a second showing and no offers have been made. The house has been listed for six weeks. Should we lower the price? That is the recommendation we are getting, and perhaps we should do that this week.

The recent issue of Grand Rapids Magazine published its annual listing of area school systems and East Grand Rapids rated number one. If we want to sell the house to a family that wants their kids to get into that school system, we probably need to have the sale happen sooner rather than later.

I'll keep you posted (pun intended!).
