Offer made, offer accepted

We had the realtor office open on Wednesday, had about 8 realtors show the house over the next 3 days then we had a well attended open house on Sunday between 1:00 and 4:00. That afternoon an offer came through with a time limit of 9:00 PM. I accepted the offer and on Monday we have signed papers.

Next steps include the inspection and appraisal and if all goes well we'll be out of the house on December 6th. It's happening fast and that's a very good thing.

Presently looking for a nice place to rent for a year or two, wanting to stay in the neighborhood so as to be close to friends.

Wonderful Cape Cod for sale in Victory Heights.

Wonderful Cape Cod in on quiet street near Victory Heights Park. Charming updated home with fabulous NW gardens. LR with gleaming hardwood floors, coved ceilings, & fireplace opens to generous DR. A great updated cooks kitchen. Three main floor bedroom. Newer 3/4 bath and updated full bath. Generous family room adjoining kitchen. Patio & storage. Newer roof, new paint inside & out, refinished floors, updated plumbing, gas furnace & more. Quiet neighborhood minutes to park & amenities

We take off our shoes at the door, hang up our clothes, hide everything in closets and drawers. This place looks like nobody lives here... and I feel like I don't live here. It's a hotel. It's a model home. It's a glossy page in an architectural magazine. Open up one of the two back yard sheds and it's a different story. Junk piled floor to ceiling and musky, dusty smell. Our smells have been condensed and crammed into two little sheds.

Living sparsely is good practice for when we live on Traveler. I'm learning how to put things back as soon as I've finished with them. I'm learning to have less of everything, less socks, less shirts, less pots and pans.

Less is good and it's good to have less.

Get over here and buy this house right now!
