Moving Right Along
Today the realtor came and took hundreds of photos to put up on the listing website. I'll post some of those photos and a link to the website when they become available.
I have no idea how good my chances are of actually selling it. Many houses around here have been on the market more than a year. Many houses that sell are foreclosures and short sales. But, sometimes you get lucky. The house most comparable to mine in the area sold in nine days.
The boys understand why we need a smaller house and why I need a house on one level, but Logan is very hopeful that if we sell, I am able to find a new place on the same school bus route. They have ridden the same bus for seven years and it has become an integral part of his social life. There are many subtleties to the bus social system. Once a rider has established his or her place in the pecking order, there isn't much mobility within the system, and he is reluctant to lose his seven year investment. I actually understand. So, if we should move to a new bus route, I guess that means he will have to drive a car to school!
