That Was Easy [Aug. 16th, 2014|08:29 am]
Tony Grist
It would appear that we've sold the house.

Sam next door has made us an offer and we've accepted it.  I'm happy about this. Sam always has been my favourite neighbour.

The sum we've agreed on is in line with the surveyor's estimate. It's not a lot of money, but it's very much more than I paid for the house back in the '80s- over four times as much, in fact.

Four times? Congratulations!

I've owned three houses over the past 30-some years, always needing to sell based on personal factors rather than on market conditions. Took a loss each time.

Yes, it's a profit- even allowing for inflation. Mind you, if I'd sold up two or three years ago I'd have made a good deal more.

Timing is everything I guess. :-) Still, good that you have a profit and not a loss!

Gosh! End of an era. And I never did come to visit when we both lived in Manchester. Alas! But congratulations. We sold at a wafer-thin profit; I think that's perfectly good for all concerned.

Yes, I've lived here much longer than I've ever lived anywhere else.

P.S. I never saw this house as an investment. In fact, until this year I reckoned it would last me out.

That was easy

Wow! How are you feeling about actually moving out of it completely? I could see some interesting photos of the interiors...
I think that it will be good to know that Sam will be in there or owning it anyway, so that you can look to the house's next era.

Re: That was easy

Relieved is the answer. At least at the moment. But this hasn't been an easy week...

Wonderful. Although you will miss your neighbors, I know. I've enjoyed many stories of them since we 'met' here on LJ (through the late suzilem.

Yes, I will miss them.

Here's to "absent friends".

Is Sam planning to move, or knock through? Just curious!

She's going to rent it out to her sister.

Congrats! That sounds like a splendid way for things to have arranged themselves.
