Fail to Sell

Treading life.
Not a recommended way to live.

Head smack.

These came about a year ago. We chose a realtor who didn't really market our home. Just put it on the list and that was about it.
Put the house on the market in November.
Dumb.
Bad timing.
We knew better, but oh well- people were moving to OKC- chance to sell! Let's move on it.

Failed to sell.

Found a new realtor.
Big suggestions.

Back on Market in March.
Offer in April (I think).
