I showed the cutest house today. Yes, you read that right... *I* showed not just one house, but several houses to two sets of buyers today. This house was so adorable, updated just right in my mind. The buyers are just starting to look and have a condo to sell in Rhode Island before they can buy, but what fun to have a chance to look at Antique houses. This one was just so sunny and bright with a pantry to die for.

Impeccably done kitchen with high end appliances
Heart be still, the pantry of my dreams with built in dispaly shelves on the entire right side
I can live with wallpaper if it is this tasteful
Large dining room with built in
Love the furniture, the yellow chair is a lovely gold toile.. I want it all...coveting again!

Much brighter than the picture and don't you love the chandelier?

The second buyers were my stepson and his girlfriend and the houses were really in a way different price point and not too cute. They are contemplating buying my in-laws house and just want to see what they could get for the same money. Makes the "Family Estate" look like the bargain that it is. Cunning Realtor, but think how much easier it would be to sell to them and have the pressure off trying to get everything done to list it the first of March. Plus it would make Bob very happy to know that after all the tens of thousands of dollars of stuff we have given away we could help one of the kids get a good start.
