It's time! This is our house & it's for sale! We have been at Scott AFB for almost 3 years...time goes by so quickly. We are moving again -- you won't believe where we're off to this time...KOREA! This will probably be one of our more interesting assignments. We are excited to be together as a family & to have Daddy home with us. Our Ops Tempo will be high, but as with all our assignments, we're going to make the best of it & enjoy every minute that we can. Travel from Korea should take us places we never thought we'd see. We've thrown around going to China, Japan, Hawaii, Australia, Thailand...and from what we understand, there are plenty of fun things to do within driving distance. We will just have to see what works inbetween all the civil engineer excitement at Osan! Brad is happy to be getting back into the swing of things, but we have a couple of important occurences going on between now & then. Selling the house is one of them & WE ARE STILL waiting on baby. :) Here are a couple of listings on our house. Anyone interested?

(this one has the sq footage wrong...it's supposed to be 2750!)

I can't wait to take a happy Spring picture with green grass & flowers, but we're waiting on everything to get green!! I will post a baby update a little later on...I'm quite antsy about it & having a hard time with waiting, so I will try to get happy & then write something. :)
Bye for now,
Brooke

Wow! That's exciting news! When is the big move? I have been waiting for baby news. I hope you are feeling well and I hope the house sells soon. Our house is also for sell and the market has slowed down here since you sold our last house in Navarre. Hopefully things are picking up.

Love you,

Hi - I found your blog online and would like to offer you a free FSBO.com listing. We love to see sellers using creative techniques (especially Blogs) to market their property! Send me an email an email to confirm you would like this free listing - "jen@fsbo.com"(no catch - it will run for 9 months or until you delete early).

Be very careful about FSBO companies that offer anything for free. They operate as lead generators for other businesses. Check out the websites carefully and look for common lead areas like "affiliate program" (found in the small print at the bottom usually) or "professional services". Often all your information is going directly to a real estate agent, mortgage company, moving company...you get the idea.

We will be using your blog in our upcoming "How To Sell Your Own Home" seminar this weekend, as we cover aspects of social networking and blogging.

Let us know if you are successful. Remember, pricing and exposure are your two biggest hurdles. Hire a professional appraiser for the best results and look for a regional for sale by owner marketing company in your area for good local support. You can find a list of regional publishers at http://www.fsbopublishers.org. Not sure what may be close to you, but it's worth the effort as these members utilize print and internet marketing that tends to get much better results than the hundreds of freebies out there. Good luck in your move.
