We Bought, We Sold. We Are Finally Off The Real Estate Roller Coaster

By
Home Stager with Sharon Tara Transformations

I can't believe it's been more than a month since I posted anything

other than a Wordless Wednesday post!

As most of you know, from comments I've made on some of your blog posts, it's been a crazy few months for me.

Not only did we buy a house and sell a house, we also finally sold a boat we have had listed for over two years.

 

It's been a very emotional and stressful roller coaster...

with everything falling into place around the same time.

 

We were under contract on all three simultaneously.

 

We had several deals on the boat before one of them actually made it to closing.

We went under agreement on our house twice before making it to closing.

Multiple offer situations on both houses was not fun as either the buyer or the seller.

Oh, did I forget to mention that my husband decided to retire last year, the week before Christmas?

We purchased new before listing the old, and the money juggling we did to pull it all off was pretty amazing.

 

Obviously, blogging was not at the top of my to-do list.

 

I'm happy to report we made it to the OTHER SIDE and can finally breathe.

 

My husband really believed it was NEVER going to happen. Neither he nor our agent (my life long friend since grammar school) thought I would ever find what I was looking for.

I don't believe in settling and was determined I wouldn't have to.

Patience paid off.

 

It took us a year to find it, but we LOVE our new home!

The view and the sunsets are pretty awesome!

I'll share some interior before and after photos soon!

Hi Sharon... so glad it all came together for you at the end. I've often said that things happen when as they are meant to do. And they obviously did for you. Congratulations! Wishing you much happiness in your new home.

Joan Cox  It was a wild ride and I'm so glad it's over. Looking forward to enjoying our new home. 

Gita Bantwal  Thank you! Hopefully it won't take me too long to share more.

Sheila Anderson  We should be buying the travel trailer now that we sold the boat and YES we will be heading for a visit at some point.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel  We found it! Downsizing is not easy, but I'm loving having so much less to care for now! Thank you!

Nina Hollander  Thank you! It took longer than we thought it would to find, but we both love it. The fact we both love it is a huge win in of itself. LOL

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD  Thank you!  It's under 2 acres, but we do have a lot of grass to maintain. The view is beautiful, and I'm told it's really special in the fall. Looking forward to seeing all the colors!

Congrats Sharon Tara  so glad everything finally fell into place for you I know it has been challenging  . I believe it is more difficult for people in the business to buy and sell sometimes then people who are not .

Grant Schneider  Thank you....things are much simpler right now. 

Hannah Williams  Thank you, and thank you for the feature. You are probably right about people in the business. Being a stager, I'm prone to be being quite selective. LOL

The good thing though, I am capable of visualization and seeing potential.

Kathy Streib  We did a lot of work, but the pics won't really show the extent of it because the paint colors, although drastically different in person, look very similar in photos.

I'm making do with living room furniture from other house until I find the right pieces so living room isn't done yet.

Kitchen and master are the most improved at this point. I'll try to get a post up this week.

That is a great looking home and certainly worth the wait, I am glad you were able to be patient and not settle for something less than perfect.  Now you should have some free time to start planning your visit out to Arizona, haha.

Hello Sharon, congrats on your new home and I love the huge back yard ... wow!

Chris Ann Cleland  Thank God it was temporary! Thank you for the feature!

Carol Williams  Helps me to better understand and relate to what my clients are living through. 

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS, Broker  Having a "view" was on my husband's checklist. I'm so glad we found one for him. The landscaping is fabulous. We had considered building but couldn't find land at the right price. One of my concerns if we did build was having to start from scratch on landscaping. I couldn't be happier with what we got!

Robert Vegas Bob Swetz  Thank you! Yes, the yard is a good size. Unfortunately, my husband wasn't planning on so much lawn to care for. LOL

I will check out the list, thank you!
