The House is For Sale

Posted by: Rick

The house was actually listed for sale on 1 April. But, we got our sign today.

Anyone interested?

The house is in great shape. Over the past few years we've remodeled and updated the kitchen, our master suite, and all the bathrooms. It has a new airconditioner and heater. A new roof thanks to Sandy. The carpet is in great shape and was recently cleaned. And, we've been busy "decluttering", boxing up stuff to keep, carting away or giving away other stuff. We are ready to show the house!

In a way, it is a bit sad. We've been here for over 9 years, now. And, enjoyed it much. But, it is time for the next chapter.

When we get a solid contract on the house, I'll give a date to my company. And, we'll kick off a hectic process of getting moved.

Comments:

Well, it has been a month and we’ve only had one showing on the house. It is a bit disappointing. We’ve worked so hard to whip it into shape for showing. It is all work that needs to be done anyway, but demotivating when no one seems to want to look at (and buy) our lovely piece of paradise in NJ.

It is still a bit early in the “season” (so we are told). And, a bunch of similarly priced houses have come onto the market in Northern NJ because Mercedes Benz has decided to move their USA headquarters from NJ to GA. And, they are relocating some people, who are now selling their houses.

We’ll do our annual visit to the cabin in a few weeks and proceed with optimism. And, keep you informed.
