I am far to familiar with the anxiety that comes with putting up a “For Sale” in my yard. Even though it has been more than 6 years since I have had to sell a home the memories are or should I say, the trauma is still with me.
All the questions that come to you in the middle of the night. Have we set the price right? Did we pick the right real estate agent? Will anyone want to buy our house? Do we need to replace the mail box before the open house?
But who knew I would be so riddled with anxiety upon hearing that our neighbors were moving and they are selling their house. Not just any neighbors, our next door neighbors. The neighbors we share a fence with. The house that is less than 40 feet from my kitchen. Just typing this is causing my anxiety to increase.
But at least we are not faced with this sign, our former neighbors are being transferred. Thank goodness the house is not in foreclosure. Still we are worried. And now we are faced with a whole new set of questions in the middle of the night. How long will the house be on the market, how long will it be empty? Will the yard and pool be maintained after they move out? Who will be our new neighbors in the house 40 feet from my kitchen? Will they like us? Will they like our dogs?
Hopefully it will not be too long before we are looking at a SOLD sign next door and our questions are answered. So until the next post about the sale of the home neighboring ours I will leave you with this sign to lighten your day.
And the question, what is a used cow?
Thanks for reading and Happy New Year,
