It’s been months in the making but it’s finally happening. The house is being put up for auction in two weeks and I couldn’t be happier. I also couldn’t be more stressed out. As this is my first time selling my home as a private citizen with a privately owned home (I’ve always rented in the past) I had no idea how stressful it would be. I mean, I knew people get stressed out about moving, but I didn’t realise how much work I would need to put into getting the place ready for sale.
There are just so many things I didn’t realise I would need to get done. Obviously I realised the decor would need to be on point (it turns out I didn’t watch all those episodes of The Block for nothing) but The Block never showed the myriad other things you need to get done. Things you wouldn’t even think about. Like, I’ve just spent the last hour looking at gutter cleaning services in Melbourne. Gutter cleaning. This may be naive of me, but I would never, not in a million years, think to look at the gutter on the roof before buying a property. According to my real estate agent, however, it is one of the many things I need to do before I can even think of calling myself ‘ready’.
I don’t have a clue how I’m supposed to get the gutter cleaned. Obviously I couldn’t do it myself, I wouldn’t have a clue what to do, but if I’m going to get them cleaned professionally, you get I want to pay for a good company to do it. So, if my educated guess proves correct, I’ll have to hire a Melbourne roofing restoration company. It seems like an awful lot of effort to go to, but if that’s what it takes, that’s just what it takes.
