Yesterday was a second visit to THE HOUSE. This one was in the company of a contractor who I plan to use for any improvements beyond my abilities, a broker (my son's "boss," so to speak) for another set of eyes, Allan (my son and my realtor) and myself. It went well. Everyone thought the house to be solid, the property to be good. All the work I want to do seems to be reasonable and not exorbitant. Both new sets of eyes and their skilled knowledge were favorable to this being a solid and good home for me. I've asked Allan to proceed with the search for all necessary permits and inspections, and pending the positive out come of these, I will make an offer. I'm excited, I'm nervous, I'm eager to be "home' completely, in my place.
On the other end of this, there have been some significant nibbles at the KC house. One a young woman going through a divorce, looking for a home for herself and her children. She has expressed great interest in the house, but wanted to look at a few more. I understand that completely . . . I did the same thing. She is nervous about taking that big step alone . . . I get that, too. There are a couple of "back-up" interests being expressed, too. It will make my move a lot easier if the KC property sells soon, so keep all this in your thoughts, meditations and prayers. I would feel so much more relaxed about buying my new home if I didn't have the other riding on my shoulders.
OK, I'm ready for a weekend, how 'bout y'all? Let's all go find some fun out there!!
