    Selling..buying ...moving.. so not my thing. Sounds like you went thru all the hoops I hate. Some would call it an adventure. It's one I'd rather stay away from. I could think of other adventures that are more interesting and entertaining to boot. However thank goodness it will all be behind you soon. congrats on selling and here's to a new home.

    I hear you! I have been helping my friend clean and pack up her house which just went on the market 2 days ago. The cleaning part is even worse than the packing in my humble opinion.

    Lastnight she was supposed to have a showing at 7pm and the people showed up at 6pm and rather than tell them to buzz off cause she wasn't ready (dinner dishes still in sink, etc), she let them in and came to my house with her kids and dog. Same thing happened in the afternoon. A showing was booked for 2pm and the people showed up at 1:15 and her teenage daughter was still in the house, getting ready to go to work. How rude is that? Especially the dinner time fiasco...people do need to eat you know! If you see a car in the driveway, guess what? The people are still there and aren't ready for you to drop in early. icon_evil.gif

    I hear that! Fortunately I sold my house privately to a friend and didn't have to deal with any showings except the ones to her family. They all understood because they were getting ready to move as well.

    I haven't read the whole post but I am a real estate agent now, and I am responsible for anything that my clients do during a showing. You should not have to make a claim on your insurance as it usually puts your rates up.

    One of our big expenses is insurance. If the agent plays dumb .. you need to talk to his broker. They know they have insurance.

    Also, when you have a house for sale, have the listing agent put confirmed appointments only. No way should anyone just show up that early.

    You can also have the agent put no showing between say 6 and 7, or whatever you normal dinner time is.

    Your agent is supposed to be looking out for YOUR best interests. My clients come first .. and the buyer's agents have to follow the rules

    Thanks for the input and advice Chef Dee.

    As it turned out, we agreed to replace some plumbing before closing in any case - that piece would have been included. We are also getting our wood burning fireplace WETT Certifed and replacing about 25% of the electrical. Without an ESA and WETT its difficult to get home insurance here and therefore a mortgage. We also set ourselves up for the appointments. I was asked if 2 hours notice would be sufficient and said yes. I just hadn't realized how many showings per day there would be. All in all I'm happy with the transaction. Listed, Sold and conditions removed in 22 days. I hated it at the time but appreciate that we went full bore rather than having it drag on.

    We see 4 houses on Wednesday and hope to be putting an offer in on a house. Knowing DH he will want to wait a day. icon_smile.gif
    Looking forward to a new place.

    Packing isn't too great, but how exciting to move to a new house. Hope you find exactly what you want.

    We are also moving soon, and found that the packing has only cost us $250 more than the removal itself - so do check up before you decide to go through all that packing yourselves.

    What I am going to is, go through each room. and clear out the junk that we wont take with us, and put lots back into large plastic zip bags - specially the odds and ends in desk drawers. things like pens pencils etc.

    I do the same in the kitchen with all small kitchen gadgets etc. Have you found another home yet K9?

    "We are also moving soon, and found that the packing has only cost us $250 more than the removal itself - so do check up before you decide to go through all that packing yourselves. "

    WOW that's a great price! I spent more than $250 on boxes and packing paper.

    Not even close here Joy. It would more than double the cost of the move. icon_sad.gif

    As you know we are moving half way around the world and the complete contents of the house can be moved for just over $7,000 so worth it as even trying to purchase some if the big stuff would cost more than that, and when I inquired, they said, just $250 extra for packing - I think some of the costs here are already built in the original quote.

    This is for anyone that is moving. If you need boxes, check your local hospital. Just call and ask for the central supply and ask when their big freight days are. I work at a hospital and we have 3 big freight days, so there are plenty of boxes to be had, and they are usually good sized and very sturdy.
