We have an offer on the house!
For those who may have missed a post, we have put our house in town on the market as we downsize and clean out 16 years of
hoarding clutter stuff so that we can move to a high rise apartment in downtown Houston.
It will be the last stop for a few years before we end up at the farm.
Selling the house gives us the equity that will allow us to do more things at the farm as well, in order to make it more livable/comfortable. Things like the new roof we've put off for two seasons now, central heat and maybe central a/c, electricity run to the barns, exterior painting and new doors, some fencing, etc.
So anyway, it's been on the market for more than 60 days, we were a bit nervous but yesterday, we ended up with not just one but TWO offers! It was a bit of a bidding war (nothing wrong with that!) and we ended up with a great offer (after staying up till about 1am back and forth)! We're happy and ready to move to the apartment. What we haven't shared with you is that we had to sign the lease on the apartment! The building we wanted to be in has a long waiting list for the unit we wanted so when it became available, we either had to go ahead and lease it, or pass and possibly not have the apartment when the house sold. We have paid rent November and now for December. It's been tough but looking up now!
We're just grateful we have a good offer and now we can prepare for this next phase of our lives as we journey toward the farm.
We've already sorted and gotten rid of and/or moved to the farm, most of the stuff in the house so all that is left is what is going to the apartment. Just have to get through the inspection process and make sure we keep moving toward closing, currently scheduled before 12/31/15.
