Sold....

 
My lovely little house is sold....wow, wasn't that an experience!!

 
 
It was on the market for 4 days and on the fourth day was the first open house and it was sold that day. The street was packed with cars, 25 couples went through (mostly sticky beaks), 4 couples were interested, then it was down to 2 couples and they kept pushing the price up and up, each of them really wanted it...which was good for me...haha. The contract was signed at 7pm on that same night.  It was sold for a lot more than we expected to get, which was just amazing!
 
I am so overwhelmed, shocked and it still hasn't sunk in yet.
 
And so the packing begins.  I have 6 weeks to pack and the settlement date is on the day that I sail out on a cruise for a 2 week holiday....so it couldn't have worked out better.
 
It feels strange packing my things up and the house is starting to look very bare!
 
Can't wait for my next adventure....
 
Enjoy your day!

  5. Congratulations on selling your house...my first house I had years ago went on the market at 1pm and it was sold 8 hours later and I the agent brought me the contract to sign at 9 pm that night (so thrilled) that was years ago but it's great that your house is not going to drag on because having to keep the place neat and tidy and personal papers and things out of the way for extended periods of time is a pain in the neck. Such a great result for you..it was meant to be. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane
