An Offer on the Table: Selling My House

This is just a short update post in regard to selling my home.

I accepted an offer on my house today. I’m not going to go into detail about the numbers at this point because we still have to get through the appraisal and the inspection. Things could change. But the offer was slightly higher than my asking price of $229,500.

Right now I’m feeling several different emotions.

  1. I’m excited to be working toward paying off most or all of my consumer debt.
  2. I’m a little sad to be leaving a place that I put a lot of time and effort into improving.
  3. I’m slightly nervous because we still don’t know where we’re moving next, and now there’s a tentative vacate date in mid-July. I’m currently looking into several rentals and a couple of condos.

An Offer Is Never 100% Certain

Although I’m fairly confident that things will work out, an initial offer is never written in stone. There are still quite a few steps in the process to get through. My hope is that it will all go smoothly.

In the meantime, we’ll be getting ready for another yard sale in the very near future. Whether we rent or buy, we have some things we don’t need. So it’s a great time to let things go.

Chances are good that I’ll know more specifics about where we’re going next within a week or two. I’ll update again soon.
