A Sign in the Yard

Today we had a photographer come and take pictures of our house to prepare a listing.  Tomorrow the signs go in the yard and our house is officially for sale.  We've thought about this for a long time and we've known for quite a while this is a step we wanted to take, we were just waiting for the right time.  We are going to see how it goes for the rest of the summer season and take it from there. 

In order to get the house ready, we've been working on several projects.  Here are a few of my pictures: 

I ordered and Chad assembled this new bench and I bought these flowers and outdoor pillows for "curb appeal":

We had our front door refinished:

We had our "yard" resodded.  Note: This is what counts as a "yard" in the city.  This is one of the reasons we want to move, so that Chloe and Brady can have a bigger yard to run and play in when they get older.

This is a project we did a while ago, we replaced the mulch in our flower beds with stone and replaced the azaleas with hardier Indian Hawthornes:

We added planters to our balconies:

New Doormat (We actually had a realtor we interviewed tell us we had to get a new doormat!)

So we've been working a lot on curb appeal projects, but we've also been streamlining things in the house, etc.  We have one last project, we are going to paint the inset in our living room that is currently red to a more neutral color.  I might post before and after pictures when it is done on Monday. 

Please keep us in your thoughts as we try to juggle our already busy lives and trying to sell our house at the same time!
