That's right... our old house is finally, officially, really, seriously SOLD!
The closing was this morning, and the payment arrived in our bank account around 2 p.m. this afternoon. So it's really, really, REALLY sold.
I won't go into how stressful it was getting it sold, or how much it's cost us to actually sell it... but at the end of the day, it's no longer our responsibility, and we can turn 100% of our attentions to this house.
I'll sort of miss it - we lived there for 8 years, and did sooo many renovations it's hard to keep track. The kids basically grew up there. But in the end, it was so stressful for us to maintain two houses, plus the cost of two mortgages, that it was more like a huge weight than anything else. And now, it's gone.
