Nancy and I have enjoyed our environment and lifestyle in Spokane the past 7.5 years. Spokane is a wonderful place to live. However, our current occupational choices have necessitated a decrease in income. So, one of our objectives in moving from Spokane, WA to Lancaster County, PA is to downsize our living costs. With our current income, our current home is beyond our means. We hope to eliminate, or nearly eliminate, our mortgage and decrease our utility costs.
So, we need to sell the house that has been our home.
One of our first steps is to select a Realtor who will oversee the sale. Fortunately, there are excellent Realtors in Spokane. We personally know several. We decided to formally interview three and select the one that we feel will be best for us in this transaction.
All three made excellent presentations. In some ways, they are similar. They all are aware of the current housing market and understand the basics of what it will take to successfully market and sell our house. Each of them demonstrates competence with a number of recent sales.
There are also differences between them. One, in his thirties, demonstrates compassion for people and is outspoken about his Christian faith. The second, in his forties, is pragmatic and will push hard for results. The third, in his fifties, has the most experience and has worked with us in past real estate transactions.
Nancy and I like each of their strengths and would enjoy working with any of them. However, we are leaning toward hiring the one with whom we have the most experience. This man has faithfully proven himself by serving us before and we have a high degree of confidence that he will do a good job for us again.
If you know of anyone looking for a nice house on the north side of Spokane, let me know!
