Last week we visited a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in downtown Columbia. Remember that walk we took on Sunday the 28th? Well one thing led to another and we really liked the location of the CCRC - walking distance of Whole Foods, restaurants, library, and other shopping.
Friday I called a realtor and by Saturday afternoon we had signed the papers to sell our house! We meet a second time with the CCRC on Tuesday and will know more then whether we have a long wait to get the apartment floor plan we would like. If this house sells quickly we will have an interim move in our future, even in the interim we can take advantage of the activities at the CCRC.
Now until March 31st when the listing goes live I have major staging to do. A stager will come later this week to walk through the house with me. I already know all my family photos have to go and have started that process. Packing and downsizing to move will come once the house sells. And there will be a lot of downsizing involved!
Thankfully I have this blog that has chronicled this lovely house and property. New adventures, new hobbies, new friends await us but we will not be saying good bye to old friends because we are only moving 10 miles south. Closer in fact to some of them!
