A lot of changes/ paid off my house!

December 28th, 2015 at 11:52 pm

I haven't posted in a long time but read the blogs frequently. There have been a lot of changes. My mom, who is now 89 and who has lived with me for the past 5 years is relocating to live with my sister and her husband in another state in two weeks. I will then be putting my house on the market and downsizing to a small condo. I am in my mid 50's and the snow shoveling and home maintenance and gardening is just getting to be too much for me. I no longer need a 3 bedroom single house and am looking forward to a smaller space! The best bit of financial news is that I PAID OFF MY HOUSE! So when I sell, I can purchase my condo with cash and should have a nice chunk of change left over. I am working on a new budget, which will change again when I move. It's going to be an exciting year!

    Wow! Big changes underway. Best news ever that the house is paid off. Having been through the process I hope it's ok to mention how important it is to select the best possible realtor and understand . I suggest getting a library book to explain how to [DIY] home 'staging' before beginning the process as it usually helps the selling process and is quite different from day-to-day living.

    Thanks everyone! Great suggestions Snafu. This will be my second home sale and I couldn't agree more about how important the right realtor is. I have a friend who is an interior designer and she helped me stage my last home. It really does make a huge difference.
