2nd Open House - No Activity

We had our second open house on Sunday February 26th with not even a Realtor showing up.  We really believed we would have some activity this time.  We placed the house up for auction for 10 days with EBay, ends tomorrow, that also said that we were having the open house on Sunday.  We also had it listed in the local paper all week prior.  The house is listed on EBay Auctions, EBay Classifieds, Yahoo, Google, Big brick, Zillow, and in the local paper.  The EBay auction has had almost 500 viewers and 7 people who have set up a watch on the house.  So far no bids though.  We have have a couple of people feeling us out about financing the house for them.  We are not going to finance the house for someone else.

Our next tactic will be to hold an open house this Friday for local brokers.  Patty sent an e-mail with a flyer letting the local Realtor branch managers know about the house and letting them know about the open house just for them.  We are offering wine, beer, and hoers devourer's.  We have been told that if you feed them they will come.

So we sit watching other RVer's Blogs and dream about what is to come.  There is an RV rally in Oregon in September.  We REALLY would like to attend this in an RV.  Need for the house to sell first though.

Update: Selling the house progress

Since the "non-event" open house, we had one person, a Realtor, come and look at the house.   She took the tour offered by Patty and made interested remarks about the house.  She didn't stay long and after a couple of days she sent some material on how she would sell the house disguised as how WE should sell the house.  She showed initiative so we will keep her in mind.

We also had a couple call us a couple of times trying to initiate a financing scheme that made absolutely no sense.  We chalked them up as crack pots.

So we are trying a new avenue by putting the house on EBay as an auction.  We also have it listed in the EBay classified section. CLICK here for (Ad for our house auction on EBay). and (The EBay classified Ad).

Now we wait and see what happens.
