It’s Sold…Now What?

So we just sold our house, which should be exciting news, but it’s not.  I never really wanted to sell my house, but knew I had too.  There are more positive reasons to moving vs. staying here so I caved and we put the house on the market.  Well it sold, but now what?  We have no place to go.

Granted it was my idea to sell the house before we bought something else because I did not want to have two homes.  But now we have nothing. 

We have been looking at houses for two years and have not found anything we like.  That makes me worry…I can’t tell you when I had a good night’s sleep in the last few month.  I live on Redfin.com  looking for the perfect house that will match up to our current home.   It seems to be an impossible task and I have to admit I am a bit scared.  Being a control freak, I feel out of control right now, waiting and hoping that my new home will show up.  Meanwhile, I have to pack up my home, where my kids were born and the only home they know. 

But I have to keep a brave face.  I have to keep moving forward for Cooper and Cole.  I need to have faith that maybe I will not find that perfect house, but I certainly will find a home no matter what it looks like on the outside or inside.

  • You did the right thing for these crazy times in real estate. While you say you feel out of control the reality is you are very much in the driver's seat.

    You now know EXACTLY what you can spend on a house and any improvements. The alternative might have been to "fall in love" with some foolishly overpriced place that would have soured all other shopping efforts.

    By listening to your rational side you'll be able to find a house that meets all your needs and won't cause you to become financially overextended and the long term pluses of that for your whole family will have a far bigger impact than the short term panic you're feeling about having "no place to go"...

    Thank you for your encouragement! I am doing better today than I was when I wrote the blog a few days ago. It will be ok and I just need to make the best of it.

    Thank you again!
