Congrats Katy!

That must be a huge relief.

Where are  you moving to?

Thanks, Chuck! It is indeed a huge relief.

I'm probably going to look for something around here, a residential part of the city. The only other possibility is this little town maybe 20 minutes from here. It's technically a suburb but used to be a small town and it's still structured that way -- a lively main street, train stop, etc. It's also not far from where I grew up, which unfortunately was a typical suburbia suburb that made me realize how much I prefer walkable downtown places.

I've also come to realize I don't like to move to unfamiliar locations. Unless it's (not totally unfamiliar) Denver. That's still on the table. I'm just waiting for my lottery winnings or a huge surprise inheritance to make it possible for me to quit my current job.

I was kidding.   :-X

I know, but I'll just add it to my list of paranoid theories. It's a pedophilia ring planning a meth lab and it's all run by Hillary Clinton.

They offered WAY over the asking price, and waived the inspection completely.
Like you, I could have waited for an open house an a potential bidding war (or not).


Well, WAY over the asking price is pretty much as good as a bidding war. My deal isn't quite that advantageous. The good thing is that since I don't even have to list it, I can skip all the sprucing and fixing and cleaning and gardening. I mean, I'll try to hand it over reasonably clean but it won't be as challenging as in the past, especially when it dragged on.

And bonus, the painter was supposed to come yesterday -- the guy does want me to go ahead and paint everything gray, as is de regueur these days  -- but luckily the painter screwed up and didn't come. That means I can wait to have it painted until after I've packed up the pictures on the walls and some of the other stuff.

Yes, I got mine at my usual clinic. So if you go to a pharmacy and it's time for the second shot do you have to desperately look around for a place to get it?

When I showed up for my first shot at the pharmacy, they gave me an appointment for the second shot.

Congratulations! 

I had a somewhat similar situation when trying to sell my mother's house.  It was in a very desirable suburb, but was a very modest house, and not in great condition.  I really didn't want to put tons of money into it.  The realtor priced it fairly.  On its first day on the market, my realtor called me to say there was a young couple who realllllly wanted to live in the town.  (At the time, there wasn't a single house for sale under 1.4M.)  They offered WAY over the asking price, and waived the inspection completely.

Like you, I could have waited for an open house an a potential bidding war (or not).  I quickly decided to take the sure thing and have it done.  No regrets.

Two words:  meth lab.

Hmm. Interesting theory.

If so, he'll have to write that on the disclosure documents when he goes to sell the house. That's another wierd thing. The forms ask whether you've had water in your basement, whether it's been tested for radon, whether your foundation is poured concrete or blocks, whether there's an underground well, etc. etc. ... and whether to your knowledge there's ever been a meth lab in the house.
