Do The Limbo!
Well!! After so many months of living in limbo (cue Jimmy Cliff), it seems like everything is moving really fast!
We got the final test results this week, and the repairs are supposedly done, so we'll do a final walk-through and close escrow some time this week. Then, for a short while, we will actually own two homes... eeek!
Meanwhile, our home goes up for sale on Monday, with a brokers' tour Tuesday and Open House next Sunday. This will mean a new kind of living in limbo (love that song)!
We have viewed 66 houses since early March, experienced great frustration as prices spiraled upward on one-story homes, made several offers that didn't pan out, and all the while we were afraid to sell our own house without first procuring a new place to live. Now that one side of the equation appears to be settled, I imagine the other side won't take too long. Hard to believe, but it's time to call
Of course the move is bittersweet. We have wanted to downsize, yet it feels sad to leave this beautiful neighborhood where we've lived for 17 years. A new adventure awaits us, but it's hard to feel it yet. As I often say, "all will be revealed in time." Wish us luck!
