I’m interviewing our first realtor today. Frankly, the whole idea of selling the house is the hardest part about moving. I kinda wish we were renting and we could just pick up and leave whenever. The thought of the cosmetic stuff we have to do to sell – painting, etc. – is daunting. We thought about interviewing them after the house was ready to sell but I think that 1) I’d like to focus on what’s really necessary to sell and 2) the housing market is freaky. I think the longer we wait, the lower the selling price will be.
