Re-Listing Time

Last week we were on the road again with a return to the VA eastern shore. That's also the location of this this blog's namesake, the Frog & PenguINN, our former home. For those of you who may, or may not know, we have relocated to an apt in a former NH textile mill. However, we continue to make regular trips back to VA to check on the F&P.


It was time for the annual fall maintenance to be done. A local company thoroughly checks and services the heating and cooling system each fall and spring. While there have not been any major problems in previous years, that was not the case this time as a freon leak was found in the 1st floor compressor. A costly, but necessary repair, which is now done.


While there, we did some yard work that included trimming and mulching the front floor beds now that the flowering season is past.


And, it was also time for a realtor change. During the past six-month listing, there were some showings, but no offers. Time for a change. The new realtor is enthusiastic about marketing and selling the F&P. He has also renovated and is living in a nearby classic older home. We like his enthusiasm and hope it's contagious to a prospective buyer. 


The Frog & PenguINN is ready for fall and a new owner who we hope will enjoy this old home as much as we have — and still do.

Good luck this time around! Two years ago, my sister one of her places on the market and NOTHING. This year it went on and SOLD in a week!!...:)JP

Good luck with your new realtor. It's such a pretty house. The house next to me has been up for sale for months with no lookers let alone buyers. It seems to be that way all over the place.

Good luck with the sale. The home is beautiful! :)

Even with a poor housing market I still do not understand why this beautiful home has not been snapped up. I know how long it has been and how much love the two of you have put into the house. I hope it sells quickly.

We know all about Freon leaks. A right royal pain in the pocket book :( Good luck with the new realtor.

I imagine it feels a little strange going back there now that you live elsewhere. Good luck with the new realtor. I hope you get an offer soon. Sometimes a fresh start with a different agent is what it takes.

I hope it works out this time.

Hoping you have a buyer very soon. It's such a pretty property!

What a lovely home. You would think it would sell very quickly. Good luck with your new realtor.

Well let's hope that this time it is the good one. We are trying to sell a farm and it really does try our patience.

Oh I can so relate to this Post since we are readying our Old Historic Home for Sale and have Moved On. I must say, tho' I miss our Historic Homestead terribly and Hope it will soon have a new Owner that Appreciates it's History as much as we have, I am enjoying the Convenience of a New Home not being the Labor of Love that was becoming too much for us at this Season of Life. Your Old Home is Magnificent!!! Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian

Decided to check in on a few bloggers. I see you have moved but haven't sold. I do hope the sale happens soon for you as managing two properties is, well, not as nice as just having one property to worry about. An apartment is a whole lot easier to keep than a house and yard! I hope you are keeping yourself amused.

My neighbour had her place on the market since May ... showings but no offers until last weekend ... then boom it was gone! She moves Jan 23rd!! She was so discouraged and her listing was just about expired. She is thrilled needless to say.
