More open houses

We have two open houses upcoming--one for brokers with refreshments and one for the general public--and as we plan for them (cleaning and staging), we got a last minute email from our realtor telling us that someone wanted to see our house the next morning. So, we cleaned and staged (putting things away and getting new things out) that night and the next morning. We packed up the critters and lurked nearby. (I try to keep a look out out front so I can see when people come and go. Usually the realtor and lookers come in separate vehicles, but not always.) Anyway, they stayed for an hour, and they may make an offer. It's all part of the process.
