4 years, 3 months.
The pictures you see here are not totally recent… they are from December 1st, 2014; more than 2 and a half months ago.
I’ve been hinting that we sold our townhouse. But for me, there just wasn’t closure with the story:
We were waiting on a reimbursement from taxes that we accidentally double paid, which ultimately was the profit we made from selling our townhouse.
Well, that check arrived in the mail last week; about three weeks after moving into our new home. Closure has now arrived.
I don’t want to portray this story lightly. I consider it a miracle of God that it happened the way it did:
After just 3 days on the market, our real estate agent, Dave Stanley with Reliant Realty, informed us that a nice young couple bought our townhouse from us. And we didn’t have to simply break even to sell it.
We had been praying that God would bring the right people to our townhouse. I believe God prepared them in their lives to see our townhouse when they did. (And it turns out, all the little upgrades we had been working on, like repainting the walls, and adding the backsplash, actually impressed them. They also liked our clean we kept it.)
To me, this is miraculous because it was mostly wishful thinking on our part that we would actually be able to sell it (especially for a profit) before we moved into our new house.
I was miserably prepared to become a landlord for the next couple of years.
Instead, we don’t have to worry about it anymore!
Our townhouse was great for what we needed it for when Mommy and I first got married. It was our brand new starter home.
And now, I am so grateful to know it went to a good home.
No, wait… that doesn’t make sense. What I meant to say was, I am grateful to know that our good home went to such good new owners.
I am so happy to be where we are in life. As I’ve said it before, we worked very hard to get where we are today.
It’s not that things are just handed to Mommy and me. But every once in a while, people like us get a break.
And our townhouse selling (for a profit) in 3 days to happy new owners is definitely one of those breaks for us. Thank the Lord!
The townhouse chapter in our life is now complete. Right on time.
