Sold! It's all over but the packing!

Yep... We sold! Can I get a "Woot?!"  

I cannot tell you how excited we are about selling.  We were going to move regardless, but it allows me to move on and not worry about two mortgage payments.  I would like to get a few new things for the new house and this will let me do just that.

Okay. So.  I am climbing up on top of my soap box.  Wait a minute......  There.  On it.  Are you listening??  Okay.  REALTORS matter!  I have bought and sold 7 homes since 1988.  Selling a property on your own is the biggest mistake one can make.  Just make sure you get one as good as mine.  If the words "lock box" come out of their mouths move on!  No doubt, my Realtor had everything to do with selling my property, negotiating the best deal possible and making sure it closes.  Over the years, he has become my best friend too, so that is fun!

Moving at the end of April....gotta get packing....

Woot! Congratulations! While your Realtor gets lots of credit, don't forget to give yourself some too. All your prep work, and staging made his job so easy! Can't wait to see the new house and the projects that will come along with it!

WOOT!! WOOT!! Let's throw in a HIGH FIVE too. So happy for you Lesley. That's what I meant when I said, "I hope you sell, so you can move on". I knew you were going to move anyway, but selling is something you don't have to think about anymore. You can focus on your new abode.
