11and 0 - now 18 and 0 - is now 76 and 0
**** Update 5/6/12 ****
We've now had 18 showings with zero offerings. Some of the feedback we've received includes: too small, odd layout (not talking about the railroad), no backyard (ours is heavily wooded), want a completely finished basement, don't like the kitchen, priced too high (really?), not enough bedrooms. The good news is: 1.) None of the things the prospective buyers don't like can be changed; and 2.) The Richlawn Railroad lives on! The realtor wanted us to lower the price by another $5,000 but we said no. We want to sell our house - not give it away. We also need a certain amount of money from the proceeds of the sale for a down payment on a new house as the wife said she does not want to live in an apartment.
Just a quick update on the sale of our home and the demise of the Richlawn Railroad: we've had 11 showings and zero offers. We just lowered the price by $5,000 and do have a showing today. The wife informed me that if it doesn't sell by the fall that we will pull it off the market and "perhaps" try again next spring. In the meantime we have decided to visit our kids in Florida more often so that the Mrs. Can get her "kid fix".
