For Sale~

Last Monday I told you all that some big changes were coming around the Shabby Nest that were keeping us pretty busy. Okay, so this is it! My big news!



The Shabby Nest is on the market officially as of this weekend. Yes, we are selling our house. I must admit, I am a little melancholy. This sweet little home is our first, and I will miss her very much!!
So for the next little while I will be sharing the process of getting our little nest "Staged to Sell." Hope you will all come along for the ride. Should be fun...frustrating...stressful...a little sad...but mostly fun!


Have a great Monday~

where are you moving to?

Oh, YAY!! I love seeing the staging process! I can't wait to see what you do! I also can't wait for you to start settling in to a NEW home, and start to decorate the new one!! Can't wait to see what you do!

Best of luck with selling your house. Staging is so important to selling a house quickly. I know - I recently sold our house in just 4 days because I staged it before every showing (don't forget to stage/set the kitchen table). It's a lot of work, but the results are worth it.

Good luck selling your house. We recently moved and it took about 6 months to sell our old house. It is a lot of work keeping the house clean and de-cluttered, but you never know when that one person will come along and want to make an offer.

What a big decision! Thanks for letting us know!!

Do you need to come be MY neighbor so you can give me great tips and I can exchange for great food??? :)
Hope the process is quick and easy!

Good luck to you. I look forward to your postings about getting your house ready just in case we ever decide to sell ours!

Good luck and I can't wait to watch the process!

Here's wishing you the best of luck getting your house sold quickly! We've had our's for sale for just over 2 months now, and I'm just waiting for the right buyer to come along! :)

Wendy, you're welcome for the linking and thanks for the inspiration! What excitement and at the same time, I can understand, reluctance. I hope that the process goes very smoothly and that your new home is just wonderful and such a blessing to y'all. Kelly

Where are you moving??? I'm hoping for Oklahoma, but I know it would never compare to New England.

I would love to make you an initial board, but only for a trade for one of your pillows. I love the &.

Kara said...

Good luck with the huge task ahead of you! I look forward to seeing all your staging ideas. Do you know where you will be moving?

I'm sure you'll do great with selling your home. I look forward to seeing the staging process!

This will make for some fun and intersting posts but I know it is probably a little sad too. I was so sad to move from our first house.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Oh, boy!!! Do you have a new place yet? The people next door to me are moving out, and BOY would it be a miracle for it to be fixed up. ;) ;) Can't wait to see how you stage your home (although I don't think you'd have all that much to do--your house is fabulous!) :)

Good luck selling your house. I can't wait to see how you decorate the next one. If you are sad about leaving, just think of the fun of getting to decorate new spaces.

Sarah said...

WOW! Wishing you much success in the sale!

Courtney said...

Wow, I can't WAIT to follow along with you! We are signing the listing agreement tonight, so our house will be on the market very, very soon. I love your site and all the great tips you offer, so I can't wait to see what you do to get your house looking even more beautiful!

Good luck!

Good luck in selling in your nest! We are in the midst of that as well. Our nest has been on the market for 5 days now.
