SOLD



Goodbye House

The closing was Tuesday afternoon. I was about 3 hours away, in my RV, anxiously awaiting the news that all had gone well and the deal was finalized.

I did not mention the pending deal on the blog, guess I was afraid I would jinx it.

I am very thankful that everything went so well.  I did not want the worry about leaving the house empty all winter.

My good friend, Terry, also happens to be my realtor. She did an excellent job at pricing it right and my attorney, Ron, ordered all of the reports and inspections and paperwork right away, as soon as we had a contract - this helped everything to go so smoothly.

Thanks to everyone that helped me
 to empty the house, get it fixed up and get it sold.

  2. Wonderful! When I read it had sold, I wondered if I had missed something about it getting under contract. So many blogs to follow.

    You are truly a full timer now. Lucky you.

  3. Congrats, it must feel great to have a major list item checked and one less thing hanging over your head as you are now full time. As of today's list I have plans to rent mine but after I prepare it to rent ... I may just put it on the market.

    Now, back to reading your story starting where I left off last night.

  4. Free at last, now that is done you can remove one big load of bricks off your back.

  5. Those two places don't even look the same. Maybe it is the snow or something that throws it off. I would have had a hard time selling the blue house at the top with all the flowers but not the house covered in snow. Not my favorite thing, to be sure. And, I would have missed having a yard. I'm not sure I could live in such small quarters after having all that freedom that a house affords but obviously you have thought about it and have made a choice that is right for you. Enjoy yourself.
