Anyway. I have no idea what my house is really worth. I bought it for $320,000 and since then have put about $8000 into it, and that was 2.5 years ago now so I'm wondering if I could get $340,000 or more for it. If I can, it will be helloooooo new house with front attached garage and an en-suite. Glorious. That will be a house I'll be content to be in for a long time. So wish me luck! Once I finish cleaning and staging, I'll have the appraisals done. The builder I want to go with does a guaranteed home buy program, so even if my house doesn't sell, they buy it from me at the appraised price. So this whole thing hinges on the appraisal.
I'll be disappointed if I can't get what I need out of it, but I know it's just another year away then, maybe. I suppose I could hold out here in this house for another year. Or maybe sign a deal in the winter and move next summer.
It's about wanting to live in a house that will satisfy my needs, on a quiet close, with nicer neighbors (hopefully), closer to the north end of town, but not on the north end, close to amenities and not too far from Nate's school. I think I can make it work.
For now it's clean, clean, spiff up this, trash that, move those and voila! So that's what I've been up to.
