I can relax.

The open house is over, and I'm so relieved. I've done nothing but stress about it for a week! We just knew nobody came when I picked up the phone to call the agent when it was supposed to be over. We were so happy to hear that she had been busy the whole time. My husband dropped me and the baby off, and we let the realtor go. I stayed another hour and a half until the Tour of Homes was over, and I got two more couples. In all, we had 14 to 16 visitors. It was all worth it!
Now, these people were not in the market for a house. But you never know who they know, and it can only help to have people come see the house. One of the women that came while I was here said the reason she came was because she heard other people talking about how beautiful my house was at one of the houses on the tour. I thought that was great. Many people took fliers and said they would spread the word for us. I guess only time will tell. Still, we accomplished what I was hoping for.

14-16 people is AWESOME!! Yep, word of mouth is best! Sure hope you get some hits with that.

That is SO great!! I'm glad you stuck to your guns to do the open house during the tour!!! Your house is fabulous, and all the detail work G put into it makes it even nicer.

Well, thank you for the kind words. I really don't know what it will take. I feel I've done everything I can, and it does become hard not to take it personally. I'm gonna try to forget about it for the rest of the winter (HA! Fat chance of that, right?). In the Spring, I will probably have more open houses and amp it up again.
