Did I say something wrong? I thought you were trying to work out remaining in the house and showing it simultaneously. If you are going to leave for showing then its a moot point.
Here is what you wrote, and what I was responding to:
Any suggestions or ideas? I really do get concerned about living here while trying to sell this place. We have no way of “staging it” while still living here with all our stuff and 7 children! And the inability to just jump and leave when folks want to see the house is going to cause a problem.
