Selling My House
Harry and I broke up over a year and a half ago but I had to wait three years before I could sell the house because of contract restrictions. Anyways the three years are up and it's time to sell so I can give Harry back his money.
I love this house and it has so many great memories but it is far from friends and family and though I do like being isolated I get lonely alot. The internet is crap out here and I can't wait until I can get high speed again (and netflix).. it's been far too long.
There is a lot of work that needs to be done before I can put the house up for sale. I mean I can sale it as is but I want to maximize every dollar and get the best price possible and if that means I have to put a few dollars in to make it look nicer then so be it. I plan to paint the outside of the house, there is lots of chipped paint. I plan to sand down the back porch and re-stain it. My buddy Chris already took down the decrepit railing. The 2 1/2 arches of land is the toughest part. There are overgrown weeds everywhere and it's a constant battle to keep everything in check.
Besides those three huge things I have a few paint touch ups inside and need to give the inside a really good cleaning. I hope to take the month of October off (now that I'm out of work) and focus on doing all these fixes so I can list the property starting sometime in November.
I know that this property is unique and will take some special people to want it. I'm not kidding myself I know it could be a matter of days or years before I sell the place. Once it is sold I plan to move back to the valley area.. depending on how much we get for the house I may buy myself a townhouse.
So starting today I begin project "Sell My House". I did about two hours of yard work and to be honest it doesn't look like I did much, but I noticed the difference. It was so hot outside (over 100) that two hours almost killed me. So I moved inside and did a bit of cleaning around house.
I'll keep everyone updated on my progress and if you are local and would like to help me out, I would really appreciate it. If you do want to help contact me and I'll let you know when a good time would be. Not only will you get my appreciation but I'll feed you lunch and/or dinner... can't pass that up.
