Well, I think we are safe to share our good news! The old Casa Radiance is now under contract! All of it started to go down while John was out of town. Of course, right? Because it isn’t enough of a pain doing the initial negotiations and then having one of the parties out of town. Anyway, we got through our big hurdle, which was the inspection, and the house was acceptable 🙂 So, our part is done. Now the only thing left is waiting for the buyer’s financing to come through. The nice thing is that we already have a house we are in, so we can close whenever her financing is done. That makes it a lot easier than having to coordinate closings. The target date is May 9th, or hopefully earlier. That will be a huge relief for us. Huge.
We have been doing riding the last few days and the temps have been feeling great at almost 70! The frogs have woken up. Here they are singing away:
They almost sound like chickens, don’t they?
We have dropped inside housework like a hot potato now and started working on the outside of the house. The front is so overgrown it is like a jungle. Years of neglect and piles and piles of dead ivy branches. We pulled this much out so far with a long way to go.
The bonus is that we uncovered 2 outdoor electrical outlets that we had no idea were there – and they work! Now we can have more Christmas lights 😀
The bushes will be coming down soon. They don’t look quite so bad from the street, but what we see coming out of the house is this:
So, yeah, there is a bit of work to do here. It might even look better all completely bare than with this stuff in place.
It will feel so good to get the other house sold and have our feet firmly in place in just one spot, I have to say. Fingers crossed that the rest of stuff goes smoothly!
