It’s been a busy couple of weeks!
My house went on the market on 11/1.so much work went into getting my house ready to show and it looks like it paid off. I have had 16 showings since then and 1 offer so far.
This is all very exciting. I am very proud of myself for doing all of this on my own. I am usually nervous about new things and this a big new thing. But I am am feeling pretty calm about all of this. My mom says it’s because I am ready for it, emotionally, mentally. I guess she is right. Moms are very smart.
So now I am working on finding a new place to live in a new state. Originally, I was going to move in with family but it turns out that I can afford to buy a house where I am going.
I have already spoken with a realtor, gotten pre qualified for a mortgage and have been looking at listings. I love looking at houses!
I am also selling all my furniture in my current home for 2 reasons; Its expensive to move and it just holds too many memories, just like the house. I want to start fresh in my new place as much as possible. And what I make from selling will pay for the what I need when I get to my new destination.
The people who made the first offer want to close by 12/23, which would be great! I really wanted to move before the new year. My job gets so busy at the start of the year so I really need to be set up and ready to work. Depending on the closing of my new home, I may have to stay with family but that shouldn’t be for long at all, maybe a month or so.
An update on my kitty. I have checked in with Charlotte, her new mommy, and it looks like Bebe is settling in nicely. I want to visit before I leave.
I am excited about embarking in a new adventure. A great way to start a new year as well.
Who else is doing something big right now?
