Congratulations on the pending sale. I hope the post-acceptance process goes smoother for you than it did for us back in the Fall of 2018. With each inspection, the buyers became more and more picky. We ended up dropping the price a bit (although still a touch over our asking price) just to get them to stop nit-picking. I would have dropped the price another 10% just to be done with it. DW loved our old house. I couldn't wait to move out of it the minute we moved in 23 years prior.

Well that worked out nicely! Your comment about feeling a little sad and even crying a little brought it right back to the reason you decided to move. You are doing splendidly with moving on with your own life after a very difficult and heartbreaking time. I hope the day to day continues to improve as you try to adjust to your new normal.

Wishing you much, much happiness as you restart your life ..go forth and prosper.

An update to this thread. I'm no longer poor...I'm rich!!!

House closed Friday & funds hit my bank account Friday afternoon. Packing up the Bend house. First load going over tomorrow. Have a u haul rented. Help on both ends. The mountain pass in between both cities is getting pounded with snow this weekend. I may have to take the "long way" which is lower elevation. It adds an hour. Plus goes over the included mileage. Ehh..

Seller of the Portland home & I have met a few times. Maybe a friendship starting? The buyers of the Bend home reached out and are going to come over this week. They have a bag of goodies for the puppy. One of them works for a local dog supply company. It's going to be a busy week. I took a few moments last night to remember all our good times here. Overall i feel good about everything. I'm super happy with the new house...plus I'm rich....again!
