ASK ONCE AND LET IT GO
My husband and I had decided to purchase a new home and leave our current home empty until it sold. It was a very big gamble given the crash of the real estate market, but we were feeling optimistic. However, after more than twenty open houses in seven months with no offers, I was getting very discouraged and really stressed about having to carry two mortgages.
I first learned about The Secret while watching The Oprah Winfrey Show. Shortly after that, I encouraged my husband to watch the movie with me on our computer. That was on a Friday. On Sunday I had to go over to the empty house and clean out the garage, and at that point I decided to use what I had learned by watching The Secret. I asked once for the sale of the house, I visualized a sale-pending sign, I felt grateful, and I let it go.
As I was closing the garage and about to return to my car, I saw a gentleman picking up a flyer from the for-sale sign on my lawn. The next day my Realtor called to let us know that we had three offers on the house. We closed escrow 45 days later.
