getting the house ready to sell

so, i’ve decided to put the house up for sale.

and BOY was it not ready.

there are bright colours everywhere, which is fun to live in, for me, but everyone tells me make it prettymuch unsellable, so lots of it needs painted:

mom and dad have helped out SOOO much the past couple days, getting this place ready for painting.

tomorrow, the sibs and their spouses are coming over to knock it all out, as well as weed the yard.


i’m very grateful for my family. =)

but, eventually, got consolidated into a manage pile:

  1. I just came across a very interesting article about a new company for selling property on your own. Here is the article: ( hope it helps sell your home! )

    IDAHO FALLS, Idaho, —, an online real estate website, announced today that their listing service will be provided free of charge. A recent report by showed an increase in emongoo’s “reach per millions of users” by 4,900% over the past three months. This has made one of the fastest growing real estate websites on the internet and an unequivocal favorite among do-it-yourself homeowners and prospective buyers.

    The site is free to both sellers and buyers, so it has never been easier to list your property and sell it. “We found it essential to offer our most basic service for free,” said CEO Wes Morgenegg, “so that everyone could enjoy”

    Morgenegg was quick to tell why was different from other for-sale-by-owner or FSBO sites, “Most free FSBO sites are lead generators for mortgage or real estate companies, but emongoo is not. We are a 100% free advertising service for FSBO all across the US. Our goal is sell properties, not people.”

    The site is not only free, but receives quite a bit of traffic. CTO Kelly Jensen attributes this to the site’s design, “The site needed to be easy to navigate, those that traffic our site can be anywhere from 15-95-years-old, so we knew it had to be simple and intuitive.” A simplicity which is driving prospective buyers and sellers to the site by the millions.

    One of the site’s users in Salt Lake City, Utah said, “I have had a good experience dealing with emongoo. I think the concept of emongoo makes sense. We sold our home on our own, thanks to the help and advertising of emongoo.” She joins other users who are saying is making selling your house so simple. Another user from Phoenix, Arizona said “I sold my home using in less than 15 days! It was the easiest online system I have ever used.”

    And so rolls on, now offering properties in 47 states and 8 Canadian provinces.
