Here in Brazil the process to sell your house is different. One difference is that you can use as many "imobiliarias" (real estate companies) as you want to. So we have 6 companies that have started trying to sell our house. Another difference is that in the US when someone comes to look at your house they don't want you to be there; here in Brazil they want the owners to be present in the house, and to show the visitors around along with the agent. Also, in the US most people fix up there home before selling it; here the majority of people do not, and it is common practice that the buyers do whatever is necessary to fix it up. We have pretty much kept our house in good shape, so there are not many things that need to be done.
Please pray that God will bless the sale of our house, and also our search for an apartment in Santos, and that all will go well. Thanks for your prayers.
