And then there were bugs...

Getting ready to sell your home can be a chore. The cleaning, the packing, the cleaning, the decluttering, the cleaning... and in our Minnesota cold snowy weather getting ready for an early spring move can be shockingly difficult. This year was no exception. With snowfall after snowfall adding inches of white fluff to the already large piles it covered up everything plus a lot more. For those digging out for an early move it brought it's challenges for sure. 

It is impossible to know what's under the snow. The landscaping, the toys, the weeds, buried garbage... and that can "kinda" go for sellers as well as buyers. Once that fluffy white starts to thaw all kinds of things can show their pretty faces. Even bugs. Yep. I said bugs. And not always just ants... but bigger varmin. 

A couple weeks ago I was at a home showing and the buyers were milling the front yard while I was unlocking the door. I heard a bit of a squeal over my shoulder and turned to look. Mrs Buyer pointed at the yard and said, "There's a cockroach in the dirt!" Thankfully it was plastic, but truly, about 3 feet from the step in the melting muddy muck of a dirt path there was certainly a cockroack. 

Thankfully we all had a sense of humor and got a giggle from the child's toy that was found to be lurking in the dirt,  but it is amazing to see what can uncover itself as the snow melts! The spring thaw certainly can be something in this neck of the woods.
