It's not for sale yet, but I did meet with a Realtor this morning. She took measurements and asked about appliances, HVAC, who did the countertops, loved the colors and the yard, and told me she would be in touch either this evening or tomorrow. Once she pulls some comps, it will be put on the market if I feel the money is right.
I'm impressed with her so far. I called her this morning about 9:30. She's already gotten information from the county GIS website and had more information than the Realtor I used when I bought this house in 2007.
Because I know some will ask, probably Charleston, maybe Savannah. But none of that is set in stone right now. Anywhere that the winter temperatures rarely dip below freezing for more than a few nights at a time will suit me. I've been planning it for a couple months. I've got some minor things to finish inside and out. I've been working on making the yard more appealing to people who don't garden. I'm no longer doing this for me, but for the next homeowner.
With sales in town the way they are, and a weakening economy, it could take a while to unload the house. I'm hoping within a year. Six months would be even better. I have options in case a transfer at work isn't possible when I do sell. Carla says I can stay with her. Or I can rent a place for less than I'm paying here. Both would be temporary.
It's 90 degrees and sunny. Not a cloud in the sky again today. Tomorrow will be even warmer. In a couple weeks, it will be back in the 80s/60s.
