Our house has been on the market since October. In that time, we have shown it six or maybe seven times, with two showings just this last weekend.

I am reminded of when I owned the Eugene Tai Chi Center years ago and was teaching for overhead. Every time the phone would ring I would exclaim, “Customer!”

Truth was and I knew it, the phone had to ring 100 times to get 10 people to walk into a class to get one to stay. Bad odds but true. Knowing this numbers game – I delighted when the phone rang!

We’ve not yet had enough house showings to get anyone interested in a coming back, much less making an offer. But, I know the more folks who see the place the better our chances.

We have to leave when the house gets shown. This is a part of the real estate game playing I really dislike. I do like having the house clean and stuff put away for the showings, but walking out the door and leaving every light in the house on — I can’t tell you how hard that is for me!

Perhaps when we leave I should yell,  “Customer!”
