We just sold a few weeks ago too and it was incredibly stressful and nerve-wracking.

Thankfully, for us, our whole buy and sell process lasted only 2 weeks from start to finish, but I can only shudder in horror at those who have their houses up for sale for months on end, I couldn't imagine.

Good luck with the sale of your house, hope it goes quickly.

We're selling at the beginning of August and we're already stressed about it. We'll have a 2 month old at the time, but we're also taking off to visit my parents as soon as the house is listed. We'll be gone 7-10 days and *hope* the house sells during that time - so much easier than having to clean/leave the house for a potential buyer. But, we're not looking forward to it nonetheless. So much to do - we have to get rid of 90% of our stuff to "show" the place as per our realtor/stager. Oh well, hopefully it'll be worth it in the end.

Good luck to you - I hope your house sells quickly smile

Thanks for all the replies and the good luck smile

Humber, I read some of your posts about how you sold and bought so quickly. We are hoping for a similar situation!

Lucasta, 90% of your stuff? That seems pretty extreme! The top two floors of our house are pretty clutter-free. However, our basement and garage have a lot of stuff. We put it in neat piles and apart from one sales agent, no one has batted an eyelash. (Long story, but I have some furniture and boxes my mother didn't want to part with when my father died that she doesn't have room for.)

Here in Quebec, July 1st is known as moving date. We were originally thinking of moving next year but decided pretty last minute that we would try for this year. We listed 9 days ago and have had 5 visits and a 6th scheduled for tomorrow. Given the timing, I'm satisfied with the turnout so far. For the price point, our house is well-sized, has a nice layout and some features that are not that common (i.e. hard wood flooring throughout, no backyard neighbors, large MBR and ensuite, etc.). However, our one downfall is that our kitchen is not particularly big given the total square footage of the house. Fingers crossed, as our last two visits seemed promising.

We are selling right now too - I also have an 11 week old baby and a toddler. It sucks balls. I have been going flat out all day as much as I can decluttering organizing and cleaning. You have no idea how much stuff you have until you have to clean up. In our area it is a sellers market and houses show for a week to 10 days and then you take offers, often resulting in mutliple offers over asking price with few conditions. So we are really hoping it all goes quickly. We are listed but don't start showing until Thursday and then will have two open houses on the weekend and offers presented Thursday. Really hoping to at least get asking as we are moving to Victoria where prices are nuts.

Good for us is that our neighbour listed this week too(we had no idea) his house is very similar to ours but he is listed for 100K more than us... and he is taking offers before us. So we are thinking it will work to our advantage. Anyone who looks at his house will likely think it is over priced and show interest in ours.

But this cleaning and keeping it clean is going to be a nightmare.

We just sold a couple weeks ago and it sucked big time! Keeping the house uber clean with a toddler and 2 dogs is nearly impossible, it was a nightmare... We listed at the wrong time so it took forever to sell...in the end it all worked out as we sold the day after we bought, but it was still crazy stressful...I wish you all a speedy sale wink

Ours is going up in a few weeks hopefully and quite frankly I'm exhausted. We are just finishing up the new kitchen, every spare moment is taken up with painting, cleaning, decluttering, drywalling etc. I'm at the end of my energy and rope. I'll be glad when the sign goes up although I know that brings a bunch of other problem.

Plus DH just texted to say our counter top is delayed.

We listed our place on April 4 and it has been the most stressful 3 weeks of my life. I already told DH that we are never moving again because there is no way I want to go through this again.

I've cried a lot, we've fought a lot...The whole situation has been brutal.

We have conditionally sold, but it's still 5 days before those are waived.

I'm jealous of all of you who have already sold.

I'm kicking myself for not having listed sooner. We thought we had another year to ensure we were in the schoold district but it turns out that we should do it this year to secure a spot.

Our house has been on the market 12 days and we have had 7 visits which I think is pretty good. However, we have no more scheduled now. Fingers crossed for some good action this week and an offer!

I am copying and pasting what I wrote in another thread:

We put our current home on the market 4+ weeks back and the prep work was insane. Decluttering, is an understatement. DH has a serious hard time of letting things go and finding a place to put his things. He thinks piling EVERYTHING in piles all over the place = Organization. I cannot tell you the battles weve had over his junk - -Anyway, time came and we had to be show-room ready, and......well, his areas of the home are not up to my standards but it is an improvement. Then, we jetted off to Europe for DHs work hoping that in the 2 weeks we were away that the house would be sold. No, we are still on the market:( A stager came in a put up their assesories and said my home was too "Toronto-ish/modern" and so I feel I am leaving in someone else's home.

Like T&C (Congrats on the sale) has said, this is our last move. I am sick of pple using our wash rooms and not flushing the toilets, or not taking off their shoes. I just want this to be over! It makes me sick to think we'll have to lower our price considering the amount of work and $ we put in this house - But I see no other option.

Did anoyone else have to lower their asking price?

Crazycatlover, we have yet to lower our price and I'm not sure we will. We are priced lower than if we had listed earlier in the year. We are hoping for a quick sale. We've been listed 19 days now and have had several good visits but no offers - yet. Two couples saw the house on Thursday evening and seemed to be excited about it. But, they want to see what else is available before they decide later in the week...fingers crossed.

However, many of the houses we have looked at HAVE dropped their prices. Since the provincial "moving day" is July 1st, those interested in selling need to do this. But, I don't know where you are located and whether this applies.

DH and I have decided that if our house doesn't sell by the end of May we are going to take it off the market and list it early next year. We figure that there won't be many buyers by then looking to move in July. We'll see how everything pans out, I guess.

Update on us, we are in the throws of showing, we went on the market on Thurs and had 5 showings, 4 on Friday, an open house today that had 18 groups come through and an open house and showings from 1 - 5 tomorrow. I told the agent nothing after 5 tomorrow, we need some normalcy. Now this week I'm sure we will see all the 2nd looks and hope for some solid offers on Thursday. I can't wait for it to be over!

We got super lucky and sold out 3bdrm townhouse in 5 days (in March). Thankfully, 1st time buyers wanted to take advantage of the 2.99% interest rates at the time. We had two neighbours that took 3 and 7 months to sell, and weeks later, ours took 5 days! Our agent was also pretty amazing. However, we didn't find a house to buy for several weeks after that, which was extremely stressful. There just wasn't anything out there in our price range/wish list. Finally something came up, and the stars aligned (the selling agent was off his rocker and listed for about $20k below what it should have been -- so we pounced!). But those few weeks where we couldn't find anything, those were stressful as heck.

And unfortunately, our closing dates didn't line up because of the time between selling and buying and right now we're living with my parents until we move in July. Oi.

MPsGirl - I felt the same way about selling the house we brought DS home to.

Rinstah, I hear you on being a bit sad about leaving your current home. We concevied both girls here, brought them home from the hospital, etc. However, at the end of the day, it is only a house after all. Also, I feel for you being pregnant with a toddler while selling...

We've been on the market almost 4 weeks now. We have had about 15 visits and a few times people have come very close to making an offer. We even had a family come for a second visit. However, no offer yet! I'm starting to think houses are selling for more but taking longer than 1-2 years ago.

If we don't sell by the end of the month, we'll be taking it off the market and re-listing in January for a July 2013 move.

How's everyone else doing? MPs, are the visits done, are you taking offers now?

We're selling our house right now and I'm slowly going insane smile I think our problem was we (incorrectly) assumed our house would sell fast since the market is great but we're going on week 5 with nothing frown we've already bought a new house so we are sol if this place doesn't sell. We dropped our price by $10000 last week and there was a bit more interest... It just takes one person right?!?!?

I wonder what the average is for the average # of shows until it sells. DH doesn't think we are going to be able to sell so we are waiting before we put an offer on Anything else so we aren't heartbroken if it doesn't sell. We listed until the end of August then we will take it off and stay for a could more years.

Well our offer date came and went and we got nothing. I can't believe it, the market is hot here but our house is in a bit of a higher price range, not really something that can be bought on one income so there are fewer qualified buyers. The open house was great and brought in 85 groups but those were all just nosey people, coming to snoop - what a nightmare. So now we are just waiting. We had about 7 showings on the weekend, no offers yet but apparently some who are thinking about it. I know it will sell but I just wish it was over, so tired of cleaning and recleaning and poor ds can't really play with his toys, it sucks. We won't drop our price though, every agent that has been through says the price is right, just need to find someone with the means to buy.

On a fun note, we are off to Victoria on Thurs to buy our new house - that's the fun part!

MPsgirl, my agent is against open houses because of exactly what you described. He believes that it is a way for nosy neighbors to snoop, lol. I'm sorry you haven't had any offers. (I understand what you mean about the double income houses - the market has gone up so much that it is unlikely that a one income family would buy our house too). Have fun house hunting!

Baby, that must be really tough. Have you tried a different agent? Changed your price? Done any upgrades/renos?

AFM, the visits have slowed down but we did have a promising one today. The thing is a lot of our visits have been accompanied by positive feedback, but no offer! As someone else in this thread mentioned...we only need 1 right?!

RinaZ: I have done my renovations, I have dropped my price many many times and have changed agents as well. I'm litterally going crazy bananas right now. I hate not having any control out of this outcome frown

Also, the current potential buyers for one unit (semi detached) has a condition to sell by June 26th. They have over 2 1/2 months to sell in a prime location. I think this is unjust but we have accepted. Now, my agent said that he will drop the listing price by $5000 if it doesn't sell within the first week and it will be sold. We are going on week 3 and he hasn't budged on the listing price for the buyers (he's both our agents). I had asked him if he thought the buyers will lower their price anytime soon. He comes back to me with a brush off, saying that if I want them to lower and have this sold faster, I will have to lower my buying price by $5000 (on a $147,000) house and they will then lower their house by $5000 for their $280,000 house. WHAT!!! How unreasonable is THAT? I have lowered by $20,0000 already on an already cheap house.

I just had to vent that out. That is flat out unreasonable...it took everything in me not to respond to that comment. Needless to say, I have not been sleeping for well over 2 months now frown

We are 3 weeks out from our closing date and I still feel like I'm in H$LL!

My house is a disaster area, I have mess and boxes everywhere...I'm worried about the new owners wanting to come into our house and being totally turned off by the home, I have nightmartes about the buyers backing out at the last minute.

I just want this all over with and put behind me!moving is hard and stressful!

Good luck to everyone else selling. We've had 3 houses pop up in our neighbourhood and none are selling right now (doesn't help that they are all being greedy and basing their price on the unbelievable and unrealistic price we got for our house.)

We're not listing until August 1st but I'm getting worried because it seems like the market has been slow - and we're just selling a first time buyers condo. One condo in the neighbourhood sold about 6 weeks ago, in 3 days, for the highest asking price we've seen in the neighbourhood. Now there are 3 condos on the market in our neighbourhood and they've seen little action; however, they're also trying to snag the "highest asking price" that this other condo sold for. I think that's where the problem lies. I know our realtor said we could sell at this price point in August IF the market remains stable. If not, we'll be selling $10,000 lower which is still a good $10-15,000 more than we were originally hoping to ask. Anyway, I've seen homes all over the city just sitting there - has anyone noticed the market in Ottawa has slowed down or certainly not up to par of where it was a year ago at this time?

We're taking off to my parents house for the first 10 days that our house is listed and we're pretty desperate to sell during this time. The idea of packing up a toddler and newborn for showings does not sit well with me.

If you were in our shoes, would you automatically list at the lowest asking price? Or...wait it out?

Lucasta-just based on the current experience in our neighbourhood right now (I'm absolutely no expert)

The first house in our neighboorhood sold for a great price. We then listed, at the same time as another house in our neighboorhood. There was a $5000 difference between ours and theirs (ours being higher, but we had about 400 sq ft bigger, and extra room, private drive and end unit as opposed to interior unit) and we had 4 offers well above asking price.

A month later, two other end units (one identical to ours) have gone up in our neighbourhood. The first asked about $2,000 over what our house sold for (our sold price was absurd and unrealistic for the neighbourhood.)

Both houses have now sat on the market for weeks. The first has had to lower their asking price 3 times already and are now lower than what our original asking price was for.

If you are desperate to sell, it is my opinion, to list your asking price at fair market value and not try to be too ambitious. I've found, in our areas, the ones who don't price appropriately are on the market a lot longer and usually have to lower asking prices a lot to sell.

Just my opinion of course. But a more reasonable price may generate more interest and perhaps incite multiple offers, if your lucky.

Lucasta, I would base my decision on your overarching goals. Are you looking to sell quickly? Or, do you have the luxury to wait it out until someone dying to have your property comes along? Also, is there something special about your property that justifies "top dollar"? Location? Extra coveted features? etc.

Also, take into account your financial needs. Do you require a certain price to make buying your new home possible? Or, is just a matter of getting more would just feel better/would be nice?

DH and I are struggling on deciding whether we should drop our price. We have had many visits, lots of positive feedback, but no offers. There are a couple of things keeping us from doing so; we like our house and it meets our needs, but we want to move for school district. However, we have the luxury of waiting until next year since Sarah only starts kindergarten then. Also, we are "moving up" and the mortgage is going to be double what we currently pay. Not sure I want to make it even more by dropping our price. Argh..I wish this was an easier decision!

Thanks for the comments!

Humber - I think people do get greedy when they see a house sell for more than ever before...just because that one did, doesn't mean yours will too. We're very realistic and would rather sell than be "greedy" or wish for too much in the current market.

RinaZ - yes, we're desperate to sell! Our new build will be ready in late October. As well, we REALLY want to sell the place while we're in Northwestern Ontario. For me, that's HUGE! We do have extra features that aren't in every unit - more open concept, quieter court, A/C, new carpet and hardwood everywhere else, etc. As for buying our next home, we based that on a price that we would've gotten LAST year at this time, so we should still be able to get $10,000 more than that. Financially, we'll be okay. We've been pre-approved (credit report submitted/accepted) in advance, though we can't finalize our final mortgage until closer to purchasing date (b/c of 120 day deadline). I'm also on maternity leave but we've been assured that won't make a difference - hope not!
Good luck - I hope you get some offers soon!

It does seem from speaking to our realtor, that she has no intention of listing high just to list high - if the market/house doesn't warrant it, she'd rather list lower because she knows our situation.

I did notice that one of the three condos listed as finally sold - phew!

We had another showing this AM from the same realtor that showed it last night but we aren't sure if its the same clients or not. Communication with our realtor has been limited as his dad passed away on Thursday. What do you guys think? Last night's viewing was at 6:30pm and today's was booked by 8pm for 11am today. It's also a smaller family owned Agency. I'm trying not to get my hope up but I hate this selling process.

We are listing next week and I just want to cry, well in fact I have been crying. We have worked solid for 2 months putting in a new furnace, new kitchen, new flooring, painting the outside, gardening, painting and fixing inside. I am so done and exhausted and we haven't even got to the keeping things clean all the time stage yet with a 7 year old, 2 year old and blind dog. I have been working all day, working every evening and weekend to get this done.

Can you tell I'm fried, I'm now having sale nightmares.

Sunshinemom, I sent you a message on FB!

Update from us, still nothing on our house in Winnipeg. Our agent is a total idiot and I would love to fire him. It seems he knows nothing about how things work and has no idea about marketing other than lowering the price!

Our trip to Victoria was great and we bought a house! It's really nice but near the top of our budget so we can't afford to lower our price here in Winnipeg much more, we dropped it $10,000 last Sunday and will be taking offers again tomorrow if anything comes in. We are under the gun though and need to have the place sold by June 15th or our deal in Victoria falls through.

I just don't know what more we can do, we had to tell our agent to have an open house this weekend, he wasn't going to and since the price drop there were only 2 more showings... it's really frusterating. I think our house is very fairly priced compared to other places and other than dropping the price there isn't much more we can do than wait and pray.

Good luck MPsgirl!

We are in a similar boat. We dropped our price 15K last Sunday also. In our case, if we don't sell by May 31st our conditional offer will fall through. We'd take it off the market then, rather than trying to get the vendor to agree to pushing the date further back. We really don't want to be listed over the summer since the market is very slow in Quebec during this time.

Crossing my fingers for you ladies.

AFM - we haven't had any showings in almost 2 weeks. DH and I have already given up and figure we won't sell the house. We didn't put an offer in on the house we love just in case our place doesn't sell. I'm glad we did it that way so we weren't heartbroken. It still sucks though.

Sorry Rinstah frown

If it makes you feel any better we've had 22 visits and STILL no offers! Today's visitors left comments of "Great house and you have wonderful taste." That's nice, but can we get an offer, please?!

Brit_mum, sounds promising! On another note, Happy Birthday in advance (mine is just a few days after yours). Any big plans for the big 4-0?

RinaZ - happy birthday back at you. No plans thanks to this bloody house reno and selling. We had planned a party but then realized we were broke due to all the money we were spending each week on stuff we needed for the house and also our first open house is on Sunday. Not really looking forward to cleaning the house while nursing a huge hangover. Looks like it will pass with no major event. Lets hope the house sells to make up for it.

What about you....
