I hold my breath whenever my kids walk down the stairs.
I know people say to enjoy this time of their lives and that it’ll go by fast and blah, blah, blah, but I’m having trouble wrapping my head around that. First, it’s only very occasionally enjoyable. Second, it’s going by very slowly.
Selling Your House
Buying a House
Also, if you’re buying a house in a rural area, you must have a realistic timeline for your appraiser to get out and take a look. Many appraisers don’t want to go to rural areas, and more often than not, there aren’t any close to rural areas. Get those dates for an appraisal secured and confirmed ASAP. Twice now, I’ve had buyers nearly lose out on a house due to the appraiser forcing a later closing date.
I have a new listing in Will-o-wisp in Bailey that will be active next weekend. It’s a 3/3, 1600 square feet, lovely house. It backs to the Will-o-wisp trails, so the lot may not actually be huge, but it feels it.
I sold my land listing, and it’s under contract, which is great. Not so great is that the father of my client passed away, and since my client lives out of state, he had no idea that his dad’s house got a pretty unawesome burst pipe during this last storm. Luckily, my neighbor came to the rescue (again) and fixed it with a quickness. Everything fell into place beautifully, and I was happy to help.
I closed on the off-market Evergreen house, and those clients want to buy another house in Evergreen for when they’re in town. *frantically looking*
And last but not least, my Fairplay deal is moving along very well at the moment. *knock on wood* It was rocky there for a second.
Alrighty, that’s it for this week’s fun and excitement, and by that, I mean bewilderment and frustration. (I do love my kids very much, and I’m happy I have them. I just never knew that something that inspired so much joy could equally inspire so much difficulty; kudos to all the parents out there).
Be happy, find balance when and where you can see you here next week!
