My husband and I decided to do the "downsizing" thing. The last few years have been more of a labour than a labour of love when it came to maintaining our home. We invited patty Mack of ReMax Camosun and her partner in business Lee Johnston to come and talk with us. Patty explained that she had watched her parents go from a big house to apartment to townhouse and then finally a rancher. My husband and I felt that we had one more kick at the can in the rancher department.
Well Patty and Lee let us know that they would price realistically. The market was slow and getting slower. We were given a price by them and their team of realtors from ReMax came in and all gave an opinion. When the dust settled the price was what we all had decided on.
We listed our home for six months figuring that it would probably take that long in this market. Well by golly four days short of a month we had an offer. We accepted the offer in awe and amazement.
If you do not like being given advice you're going to get it anyway. QUIT BUYING STUFF. Now we are in to packing, sorting. Our best friends are the staff at the Salvation Army thrift store. The fun part is being able to look for our new home and thanking the Stars above that we won't have to rent a furnished apartment for long. Very expensive!!! We swear that we will never buy another anything Unless it is food.
Thanks Patty and Lee, you are the best,Cy and Myrna
