House for Sale – how long will it take?

So I have scrubbed and polished – decluttered the house to within and inch of it’s life and we now have our house on the market. This will be the sixth house we have put on the market and all of the others sold relatively quickly. Despite the smiling optimism of the Estate agent the housing market is a very different beast than when we have previously sold. Houses nearby are selling albeit relatively slowly and for a supressed price. We have been painfully realistic about our starting price and are prepared for the long haul. We sold two of our past homes within 48 hours of going on the market – those were the days !!! If you fancy a nosy here we are on Rightmove

Now I just need to avoid that “living in limbo” feeling that comes with living in a house for sale.
