Seven House Showings and Zero Offers!

Well, our home has been "shown" seven times in the past 2.5 months, and not a single offer.  The feedback is always the same:  The buyer loves the house, but is just starting to look...the buyer loves the house, but it is too big...the buyer loves the house, but they have to sell their house first...the buyer loves the house, but not the yard...I am ready to throw in the towel!  It is such hard work getting the house ready to show.  Yes, we have a lot of things in storage, but we still usually have 7 or 8 baskets of laundry (whether clean or dirty) that have to lugged out to the car, boxes full of papers and stuff that gets laid around, dusting, vacuuming, mopping, scrubbing, staging, getting all the kids and the dog out of the house....very stressful!!!!!  Have you ever heard the saying, "location, location, location?"  Hopefully someone will want to buy this big beautiful house on the hill soon before I lose my sanity!!!!
Blessings, and if you are selling a house, I feel your pain!
