Our house is officially for sale. You can see the listing here for yourself. We’re not scheduling any showings until Friday to hopefully build interest and then in this supposedly seller-friendly real estate market the hope is to have received an offer by the weekend.
It’s all very exciting of course and the culmination of a LOT of work, especially by Tanya to get the house organized to the point where we could do these photos and have the house ready to be viewed by the public.
Stress levels right now between all of this, the election, my normal work-related stress and everything else going on in the world like a worldwide pandemic are through the roof, but I’m keeping to a strict diet of mind-altering substances and booze to keep my mind limber.
The plans for the rest of the year are all contingent on how quickly the house sells. If we get lucky and get an offer right away and closing is scheduled for around the end of November, we’ll probably end up spending most of the month of December in Michigan living with family before moving to Mexico the first week of January. (We’re moving after the first of the year for a variety of reasons — tax-related and logistical since it seems like rents are cheaper and there is more availability after New Year’s.)
If it takes a few weeks to sell we might end up only going back to Michigan around the holidays before moving, but like I said — it’s all up in the air.
As for now, the waiting game begins but in the immortal words of Homer J. Simpson “The waiting game sucks, let’s play Hungry, Hungry Hippos”.
