Default Wonderful news for me !!!

hi guys...I am busting @ the seams... so I have to share !! Over a year ago, my mom decided to move from the frozen north of NJ back here to TX... we started building a house... then she got sick... her builder went bankrupt... on & on... so we let it go .... well... 3 weeks ago she put her house on the market... AGAIN ! A week ago today I found a house FSBO & it was close to what she wanted... so yesterday I got into another FSBO that is .8 miles from my house.... I emailed her 30 odd pix and she said SHE LOVES IT !!! So, today 5 minutes after her OPEN HOUSE in NJ was over... she called to tell me ITS SOLD !!!! The new buyer wants to be in by October 1st !!!!

I cant believe it !!! I am jumping off the walls & I will be leaving in the next week for NJ to sell everything we can... I sold her dining suite last year when I was there on Ebay... so I will probably list some others while Im there... and then have a giant garage sale...

We bought new furniture for her last year when she was here & my DH is thrilled it will soon be out of his "shop"..... keep your fingers crossed for a smooth transitions... my DH & I are about to go make an offer on the house here.... its a bad time for me as FIL just had open heart surgery & school starts @ Labor Day.... but I think DH can hold down the fort for the next 5 weeks !!!


BE happy for us.... I AM !!!!

Steph (in the middle of nowhere.... Lubbock, TX)

That's great, Steph. Wish the news were as good for my 87-yr.old mother who suffers from dementia. She's going to have to go into a health care facility possibly next year.

You've got a big job ahead of you Steph! We did this 2 years ago with my dad.......also from NJ.......where in NJ is your mom? We ended up hiring a guy who boxed up everything we didn;'t want and he auctioned it. I realize we could've made more $ had we done it ourselves but time was a factor for us.

Angela Z - she is in Hewitt, NJ... upper Greenwood Lake is her backyard... literally ! We will have a huge sale... hoping only to bring 5 pieces of her fave furniture... the big thing is briging all her dog "stuff" as she is a dog "shower" - those dogs get treated better than we did anytime ! and why arent those dogs helping her pack.... lol ?!?!? It will be hard on us "girls" getting all the furniture down from upstairs... maybe we can find some cute moving men ?

Im truly psyched... we will make an offer on the house here tonight or tomorrow... DH doesnt want to appear to "eager" I tossed & turned all night... I just wish she could see it in person BEFORE she moves in !

Thanks for your support & friendship -
Steph

Steph, that is great news. I'm sure you're going to love having her close by, and that she is going to be blessed to live near you too.

well guys... we made the offer yesterday & just tonite they came back with their "bottom dollar" - we have been out looking for back up houses because we are on such a tight timeframe & I have to have the house lined up before I go north ! So... DH thinks we should buy a brand new house 6 miles away for a little more money but a lot more "bang"... but I like this house for lots of reasons... its basically up to me... mom said for me to decide ???? Its hard enough picking a new swimsuit each year... let alone someone elses house !!! UGHHHH... decisions... decisions....

Anyone coming to our NJ garage sale ??? lol

take care
Steph
