So, after being on the market for about a week, (We hadn't even had the Open House yet, just the Broker's open house (where the brokers are invited to look but can bring clients) and a few showings...) we got two offers on our house. The higher one was above list, so we accepted. The inspection is Tuesday and, if all goes well with that, and they don't want too much taken off the price for whatever they find, we might be closing soon. It's so quick and exciting. We went to look for a rental place today to bridge the gap to a new house. Yes, eventually there will be Buying a New House Trauma posts, but this is the Selling Trauma part of it first. We already know the inspection is going to object to the roof (which is about 20yrs old - we didnt' bother to replace it, since we knew we'd either sell or expand the house ourselves) and there are tree roots in the sewer pipe. But we'll see if they're really prepared for buying what amounts to the land and a shack. :)
I'm just really eager to get out. Looking at the apartment complex it was nice to think about a place that I don't have to deal with my neighbor's hideous feral cat colony. look, I know a bunch of you are cat people, but an Actual Crazy Cat Lady is not great to live next door to. Plus, the complex is new and has a pool, and it'll be a lovely change. The goal eventually is to move into a district with a good high school but that's a couple years away.
In other news, I am already 7K behind for Get Your Words Out, so I have plenty to do in February! at least we get a Leap Day for the month! :DD
