Officially on the Market

Yep, we’ve got a sign in front of the house so it’s officially listed on the market!  It’s funny when we talked with the realtor and she said that our cul-de-sac is not found on any MLS listings.  That’s when we realized that all 7 houses here were pre-sales and we’re all original owners.  We were the first on this road so I guess it’s only right that we will be the first to leave.

We took another big step yesterday when Eric came to pick up the waverunners and do the paperwork at the bank.  He has a 14 year old daughter and an 11 year old son whom he was going to surprise.  He’s a nice fella and I’m sure that his family has already enjoyed them since it’s been so hot the past few days.  We decided not to get a photo of them as they were being hooked up to his truck.  Gin had a tougher time letting these go than I did.  They sure did give her a sense of freedom on the water.  We’ll miss them but they were kind of a bumpy ride and made us feel real sore.

We haven’t taken a trip in Wanda in quite a while and we really need to.  Maybe we can sneak away for a couple of nights at the lake later this month.  That might be a good time for an “open house”.

Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.

Congrats to you both. We know it has been a lot of hard work to get to this point and the house looks beautiful.

We hope you sell the house quickly.

Best of luck in selling your home and starting your adventure. I hope you have a quick sell but don't get discouraged. Our house has been for sell for over a year. Never thought it would be difficult to sell a lake house. Once we sell we will be hitting the road.

Congratulations on getting the house listed. That's a very big step.

You home looks beautiful and has very nice curb appeal. I'm sure you'll sell it quickly.

We closed on our house yesterday so we're now official fulltimers!

First of all I love your house. Are there fish in that lake? I do not know if our Irish luck can rub off on you but I hope it does. Our last two homes sold quickly and allowed Deb and I to hit the road. You have all of our positive energy and best wishes.
