Home sale update


I'm sure many of you are wondering how the home sale process is going, and so I thought I'd give a brief (graphical) update. Here's a timeline of what has happened since we put our house on the market on 1/16/09 (click to enlarge):

As you can see, we've had a decent amount of showings, and we've dropped our price three times. But it's discouraging that we haven't had an offer yet, and particularly discouraging that our last price drop has not yielded more showings. We're going on three weeks since our last showing, and this lull is despite that fact that we are definitely priced below average compared to similar homes in our area. Foreclosures are still a big problem that's driving down demand for "standard" single-family homes.

Your continued prayers for the sale of our house are certainly appreciated! We know it will happen when God wills, and we also know that having it take this long (and getting a lot less money for our house than we had hoped) is also part of God's plan for us. Just a few more reasons to abandon control to the Lord!

If only on a small scale, as we haven't been on the market for as long as you, we can relate! Even after 6 or so weeks, we realize more and more that it is the Lord who will sell our house, and His plan is perfect. In our humanness, we grow impatient at times, but we ultimately hope and trust in Him. We continue to pray for you, as I'm sure you pray for us, too.
