Anyone wanna buy my house??

SHEESH!! What a year of changes it's been for us!! [:D] With everything that's happened in our lives lately, we've decided it's time for us to sell our house, and get ready for a somewhat "transient" semi-retirement"!![:D] Hopefully the house sells relatively soon. The plan then is to stay in CowTown for a couple of years, rent a nice condo (don't want to have to worry about maintenance, etc.) then start doing the travelling we've always wanted to do!! Any takers???

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

    Karen, that's a really cool patio awning you have. What's the brand, if you don't mind?

    John.....I just looked at the awning and can't see any labels. I bought it a couple of years ago at a local garden centre. I'll probably be heading over there again this week, so I'll see if they have any in stock and check the brand for you!

    Good luck with the life change, Karen.

    Hopefully the housing market is better in Canada than here in the states.

    Very nice house.
    I hope your market is still strong, Ottawa is in a big slump. The price for a house like ours has gone down 10% in the past 2 months.

    I'm not really too certain about the market....it seems that homes in our price point are still selling, but the condo market is slow. The market prices have dropped BIG TIME from what they were 3-4 years ago....too bad for us.[:@]

    Wow, Karen, Beautiful home and congrats on the retirement part! Lucky you! Sorry for all that you've been through to get here! How's the hubby doing? Hope great! Traveling around sounds awesome! Again, Congrats! Doubt you'll have any problem selling that beautiful home. Somebody is going to grab it!

    Your home should be featured in a "Home & Garden" magazine[:)] Hope it sells quick so you two can get on with your next chapter in life - btw how is your husband?

    Beautiful home!  Hopefully some of the "hit" you're taking on the declining prices will be offset by the "steal" you'll get on the condo!

    Thanks for the nice comments![:)] DH is doing very well! He has decided to have Brachytherapy (seed implants), and will be having it done Nov. 8. His Dad, unfortunately has also just found out that HE has prostate cancer, and his is more advanced and aggressive (but still treatable).

    DH has been "kind of" looking for work [:D] and there is a position he MAY take, if he gets the offer. If he DOES take the job, we likely won't be able to do too much travelling for the next little bit, but we're mainly just trying to make life choices that will help eliminate the stress we HAVE control over!![;)][:D]
