The All-Star, All-Musical Property Sluts Series Finale

I'm reading: The All-Star, All-Musical Property Sluts Series FinaleTweet this!

I started my not-ready-for-HGTV house hunting vlog series on a lark. The video series gave me a creative outlet for handling the stress of a frustrating house hunt. Who knew I'd have twenty episodes and a loyal fan club?

The day before my family headed down to Orlando for the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, we had a contract accepted on a house. Long story short, we wound up withdrawing the contract. The only good thing about that purchase would have been getting footage of me saying, "We just bought a house and now we're going to Disney World!"

On the plane ride to Orlando, I penned a clever ditty based on a well known Disney song. The ride based on that song has been known to leave park guests pulling their hair, screaming, "When will it end?!"

That's how I felt about our house hunt.

But it's over. Property Sluts is over and I've moved on to the Reluctant Renovator, whose first video is scheduled for next week and whose blog is now well-established. You can even follow along on Facebook.

I leave you with this final episode, It's a Buyer's Market After All. My sincere thanks to the all-star cast of bloggers who participated. With an average rehearsal time of about 23 seconds, I think they all did an outstanding job. Visit their blogs via the links below.

Selfish Mom:
We've seen houses big and some houses small,
We've seen moldy basements and shower stalls.
Though the market is weak, sellers price like it's the peak, but it's a buyer's market after all.

MacaroniKidNYC, Honest and Truly, Jen Rab, SAHM Reviews, and Dancing Hot Dogs:
It's a buyer's market after all,
It's a buyer's market after all,
It's a buyer's market after all,
It's a buyer's market after all.

Sweet Life, Rock and Roll Mama:
Interest rates are low, but the prices are high,
Even for estate sales where the owners have died.
The recession isn't nice, you may need to cut your price
Cuz it's buyer's market after all.

Classy Mommy, Me:

Same Old Shannon, French Foodie Mom, A Savings Wow:
The housing supply now exceeds demand,
So if you want to sell give your buyer a hand.
Though it's hard to admit, makes you feel like sh*t, it's a buyer's market after all.

Thanks for following along!

P.S. If you're keeping track, as I predicted, the Smokin' House is still on the market, as are most of the overpriced houses. Many of the houses we toured eventually sold once the owners accepted local market conditions by cutting their prices $20 - $80K. The house we now own was one of the few that went on the market at the right price; the owners received multiple offers within one week of listing it

Also. the Home Office episode has remained one of the most popular of the series. Have you seen it?
