I finally sold my condo! Actually, its been sold for over a month now, but the whole process of getting it ready, cleaning my place, has not only been time-consuming, but tiring. I remember now why I loathe moving so passionately, its exhaustive and draining. After a lot of thinking, I decided not to rent, but to buy again. It’s a bit of a kink in my plans, but it felt like the right thing to do. Renting just didn’t seem right.
I have no idea right now where I’m moving to. That’s been an interesting experience. Unlike the States, the market is hot right now in Toronto so the pickings are slim. I had put in an offer on a new place, meaning it hasn’t been registered with the city, but its built and getting occupied. That turned into a bit of a fiasco if I don’t say so myself. So, I’m putting in an offer on another place (at the same new building cause I haven’t completely learned my lesson) this week that will hopefully go a hell of a lot smoother than the last offer I put in.
My real estate agent is a pretty good guy, a little slow for my liking, but a good guy. He’s a referral from a co-worker and so far he’s saved my ass….on the first offer I made that turned into a mess. I have looked at about 30 – 40 places so far, maybe more I’ve lost count over the past two months. Some of the places I’ve seen are spotless and then there were some I saw that were completely disgusting. Only a handful have wowed me enough to consider putting in an offer. And, even then, I have only put in one offer.
I haven’t even consulted movers yet because I’m not sure when I’m moving and where to. Hopefully I’ll have that figured out this week because I’m starting to get antsy thinking I may have to stay with my parents for the interim. That…would…not….be…..good.
Anyways, my life is consumed with this move and until I get it done and over with, I really can’t move forward. And, I really need to move forward. So, here’s to me starting fresh….somewhere…..soon.
