The ink has dried.
The keys have been exchanged.
The deed is done.
The gas, electric, alarm and insurance cancellations are done.
And now it is in the new owners hands.
Tudor cottage finally has new owners. We closed this afternoon.
Nice young couple. Both the husband I can not be happier.
Owning a second home is not all it's cracked up to be. I know it wasn't that type of second home.
But what a bother.
Worry about break ins. Worry about thefts. And then that was that second yard to cut, trim and weed.
On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week I went to the old house and scrubbed every last inch of floor, cabinetry and woodwork. Their realtor even said that this was the first time he had walked in for a preclosing inspection where the house was immaculate. It's all about good karma.
So for continued good Karma we are throwing the new owners a cocktail party next month.
Thank the goddess that they are nice and not assholes. And thank the goddess they bought the house as is, and without contingencies.
