Irene & the Open House…

I’m not sure if you’ve been watching the news but there’s a big hurricane barreling down on the East Coast. We did what all sane people do during a hurricane; we hosted the open house for the basement apartment. We’d actually posted the listing Thursday night knowing full damn well that it was probably the absolute worst day to have an open house and fully expecting no one to show up and to have to reschedule it for later next week. Imagine our surprise when Jedd’s inbox was flooded with inquiries and people making sure the open house was still a go. Of course we were committed to having the open house, what else were we going to do? I mean I couldn’t very well go shopping like I wanted to. Two hours in the basement was a great way to pass the time. Speaking of which let’s look back at what the basement looked like when we first moved in….

Compared with what it looks like now….

The feedback we got was amazing, everyone who saw the place expressed a lot of positive praise and everyone who saw it was interested in putting in an application. We were surprised, we thought the rent for the space might be on the high side but after researching it we realize it’s just right. We walked to a bar down the street after wards to discuss who our ideal tenant(s) were and immediately agreed that one couple stood out above all the others. We’re excited to send them the news and to embark on a new phase in our life “being a landlord” ha-ha.
