For Great Buyers!!!

We had our settlement yesterday, selling the home we've lived in for almost 40 years. The buyers were wonderful from the start--considerate, willing to compromise (as we were), pleasant, cooperative. No outlandish or expensive requests. BOTH our agents commented on what an easy sale it was, how smoothely it went.

I know this isn't the norm, but just had to acknowledge how much we appreciated our excellant agent--who found us buyers in 5.5 weeks, our buyers who have become friends, and their lovely agent who also helped move things along.

40 Years? Must have been tough to move out of that house.

Barb--you don't know the half of it--LOL! We actually bought our 'new' house 4 years ago, and have been gradually moving for the entire time (well, sorting, tossing, moving, reorganizing....) Unfortunately, there were a few things happen along the way that prevented us from listing as soon as we'd have liked to (health problems, both DH and I; then aunt's health took a turn and I had to assume responsibility for her; then they had our street torn up for the better part of 2 years to replace the water, sewer and gas lines.....for starters). but it all worked out--now we're old enough to retire, the market is rebounding in our area, and we found just the right buyers for our home and the neighborhood.

I wish everyone could have the positive experience selling that we did.

Well it's nice that you were able to move slowly.

We have only been in our current house for a little over 10 years and I dread moving all this "Stuff" again. (DH is a packrat).

We have no immediate plans to move but I hope to be able to sell within 5 years. I have started making trips to the dump & goodwill etc purging what I can.
