    Sold!

    I've been awfully busy. Decided to sell my house today at 5:30pm. Spoke to the appropriate people, did the appropriate beginning paperwork, dealt with the lawyer. It is now 9:20pm. Just got a phone call. House is pretty much sold. Wow. Four hours. I'm in shock. I'll be buying a new antenna tomorrow.

    I need ice cream.

    You're buying a new antenna w/ all the money you made from the house? I hope you made more than that.

    Congratulations! BTW - Ben & Jerry's was on sale - 2 for $6. Phish Food makes everything better.

    Wow... you're efficient! You definitely deserve some ice cream.
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    This all came so fast. We still have to wait for the details. We still have to wait for the rest of the paperwork to be drawn up.

    I don't know WHERE I'm going!!!!! I thought all of this would take at least a couple of weeks. Apparantly the down payment has already been offered.


    Get this. 3 bedroom, 1 bath, no garage (changed partially to large laundry room) unless you own a Honda Element or Scion Xbox. Updated kitchen with all new appliances. Original bathroom. New roof, newer dual pane vinyl windows, walk-in work area/large shed in yard. 1,200 square feet. Nice neighborhood, walking distance to schools, built in 1936. Airport traffic above. $750,000 asking price. Sold for asking.


    Wow.

    You live in a ghetto where houses sell for $750k? Damn, that's a nice ghetto. BTW, I'm interested in the timing. You decided to sell at 5:30 pm. When did you discover your antenna missing? 5:29 pm?

    Maybe you sould have tried for an even cool million?

    seriously - you've got to be in an area with some insane property values. My parent's house isn't valued at 1/3 of that and it's a 4bedroom 3bath w/ 2 car garage and a pool built in '78.

    The house across the way 2 blocks down is a 3 bedroom, 1 bath, 2 car garage, 2 story (mine is 1 story) was going for $725 and has been on the market for 3 weeks so far.

    Slvoid, I hope you're not saying I'm asking too little. I did the comps and the market is soft right now. I was hoping to do this in the summer when the market is higher but heck this was on a whim.

    Im mad at you now. I thought we were gunna ride together, alot. Now your going to move away from me

    Also the real estate in cali is crazy. Our old house was 2 bedroom one bath. It was super small and super cramped and had tons of water damage, mold, and termite damage. People paid a half million for it though. Guess why- 2 houses away from the beach.

    I think the antenna was stolen while I was drawing up the paperwork.

    Not in Manhattan, but somewhere in NYC. Even Washington Hts. would be a stretch.

    I told you I was seeing the lawyer today and offered to ride tomorrow. But when I asked for your cell, you didn't respond.

    Where's your lawyer at? Above a bail bondsman? Anyways, let us know where you land. You got some time before closing and the buyer still has to get their financing together. I suggest moving close enough to a trailhead that you can ride to.

    I already had that in mind. I'd like to move where the trail goes right behind the house. I know the area, and I think with a little luck and God on my side, I might be able to possibly maybe almost swing it. AND afford my eye surgery! *fingers crossed*

    The last time you pmed me was last night, all it was was a quote of everything we had allready said. Judging by the quality of my bike you think I can afford a cell phone?

    Stop the bike thing already! There's nothing wrong with your bike. I like it, you like it. It operates well. Why do you cut yourself down like that?

    Well, wherever I go to, I would like to have a ride on that trail for those close enough who want to join in. And I wish for it to be a BF "first ride on the new trail behind the new house" ride.



    Whoa Nelly. Slow down. Don't get the hopes high.........

    A friend of mine took a shovel and wheelbarrow and built a technical single track in his backyard. Basically lots of up and down snaking w/ rocks and logs thrown in for fun. Just an idea.

    You could afford a new house almost anywhere in Oregon and have money left over. Cali's the rat race in a lot of places.
