OK, I know some of you have been through the gamit before... But, still,...  I am excited and hopeful!

We are showing the B&B today! Our realtor said this person is Really Interested.

I think I'm ready. Everything is as it should be, and I have my paperwork handy in case they are sign confidentiality stuff to see records. 

The last person who 'wanted it', her husband had massive heart failure (literally) and so they were unable to move forward in the deal. 

IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD REMEMBER ABOUT SHOWING that you'd advise????? 

Keep your fingers crossed...

2 1/2 hours is a really good sign. They must have found a fair amount of "good" to keep them looking for that long.

Well...... 2 1/2 hrs later.... they just left! Yes they were here for 2 1/2 hrs. They talked a lot, looked at everything, asked tons of questions... Signed the confidentiality statement and took all the info with them... but it was hard to get a reading on them. The Broker said she felt like they were interested and liked it. But it was hard to get a reading on them... I couldn't really tell for sure.

they may not want to seem too keen in case it jacks up the price - fingers crossed! - plus at least they were clearly taking it seriously and not the lookie loos you sometimes get! (this means people who look but clearly have no intention of buying or have no money or both!)

If you have a list of 'other' things the new folks can do to bring in revenue you can show them the possibilities. Make sure it's clear what items you are taking away with you when you leave. Don't take anything personally.

Thanks! It's a good reminder to not take anything personally. Great idea of making a list of other revenue possibilities.

I'm just thinking of when we were selling our house. We had people sit with their broker in our dining room for an hour while they looked at other property listings the broker brought along- while my kids and I stood across the street wanting to get in to eat our dinner. The upshot from the broker? 'Oh, they said no as soon as they saw the driveway.'

We had a lot of that. And they didn't like the bedrooms being on separate floors. (Are you kidding me? Having your bedroom away from the kids' bedrooms is a BAD thing?)

And they didn't like the decorating. And they didn't like...

It's hard not to take that all personally when you're selling a house you love. After we had all the furniture moved out I sat on the stairs looking out the window sobbing. Worse still was when I found out who was buying my house. Someone I knew from work who I knew would tell everyone every last thing I had done wrong in the house. ('Oh, the colors she used! Oh the fixtures were so old! Etc...)
