Big day tomorrow! House goes on the market

The wife has the baby lookin as nice as any model home anyplace.

She is so looking forward to the move down to North Carolina, and I am looking forward to getting out of the New Jersey RAT RACE!

Congrats! 8)* I for one know you have reached a major milestone in getting that sign up, cause I am right in the middle of the same process. Not quite there, but making progress.
How are you going to go about moving the "stuff" when the time comes?

Hope it sells quickly and for the price that you want. *NC sounds really nice. *We are thinking of retiring there after my DH retires.

Brotherin law from the carolinas and sisterin law said they would fly up we will rent a truck move the good stuff sell the junk and off we go.

I guess.

Honestly I really have no idea what I will do, heck I am waiting to close on this house before I put in my retirement papers.

Heck I might have to stay up here until thanksgiving or so and stay with my suister if the place sells later than sooner and make an additional 30 grand before I take my 30 grand pension.

I gotta say I turn 50 in april and being able to quit my teaching job and do some other things is well PRICELESS!

No mortgage no car payments medical benies paid for hey what is not to like??

Getting a part time job to add an additional 15 Grand.

It SEEMS good on paper! Oh well I am running 10 miles a day and feel GREAT!

Yeah, right. Just tell everyone "I'm a damn yankee" in your thickest, richest NJ accent and you'll fit in just perfectly here in Raleigh.

Hope ya'll have a safe trip down. Oh yeah, learn the word "ya'll", you'll be needing it.

Thought I'd pass this along....It made the rounds at that "other place." Speaking of Yankees, who did more damage to the South's Old Confederacy ? A. General Sherman or B. President Abe Lincoln?
Answer: False. It was Willis Haviland Carrier.
You history buffs explain...

OK newguy, have you sold it yet?

In looking back over my real estate deals ( a lot), it seems to me that I worked a lot harder (to get the best price) as a buyer than
I did as a seller. Not too sure why (impatient?). Anyway, with
hindsight, I think I was too quick on the trigger most of the time when I sold, at least for those times when I had little pressure, other
than my Type A genes.
