House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

Houses Are Like Relationships, Day 2

It's Not You, It's Me House
We have all been there. It should be perfect. Everyone tells you so.
It has everything you are looking for- looks, smarts, fancy finishes and all your friends love it!
This house makes you look good, lets you shine, it's well....very nice.
When your mother offers her seal of approval, it feels more like the kiss of death than the final piece of the puzzle.
There just isn't the butterflies in the stomach, blowing your skirt up, shout it from the rooftops feeling that you have been holding out for.
It isn't fair to drag it out. There is a buyer out there who will find this house to be the bees knees. Give their love a chance.
You have to accept that the chemistry just isn't there and utter those harsh words....
"It's not you, it's me."

  1. Agreed. It's not you, it's me. I just can't live there.

  2. It's so true! Sometimes that spark just isn't there... Maybe you can be friends with whoever does buy it, though. ;-)


I live for comments, so please pop in and say "hello!"
