Home Sale and Debt Free

July 9th, 2015 at 04:19 am

Our home sold on Tuesday July 7th. We officially are debt free and don't own a home. In many ways it's very freeing. Since we've been on the road I'm not sure what fees and will look over when we have a chance. But overall life is GREAT.

I can't explain the relief and lack of anxiety I now feel having finished the sale of our home. Sounds nuts but this home sale was giving me a lot of grief and ulcers.

Besides the fact that the packing moving was very slow and a lot harder than I thought. We had 80% done a week in advance of moving. But that last 20% was so difficult. We got to the point of no return honestly. We just started throwing things in boxes and loading the trailer. We ended up with 15' linear feet, a foot less than estimated.

We did hire movers for 3 hours at $60/hr and it really helped move things along. According to the tracker our trailer is in PA waiting to go to Dayton, OH. Sounds crazy fast.

Plan is still to arrive and find a place and have our trailer stored and then delivered end of August.

FWIW, it's a little weird not being a home owner for the first time in 13 years. It's also weird knowing we owe nobody NOTHING. That we have no big debt hanging over our heads. We also have a nice big cash number in our bank accounts so life is a little more rosie. Now onto our road trip.

    I know those feelings! Do you also feel homeless? We had feelings of that on some level until we got to this temporary apartment. Just four more days until we get our stuff back and move into our rental home.

    Ha, ha, had to laugh! Every move I've made I've gotten 80% done ahead of time, and threw the last 20% in boxes in a panic!

    Yep, me too. Last move I think it was closer to 30% of my stuff that just got tossed in boxes. (That's how I ended up with the comforter from my bed which actually belonged to the school/mission! NE packed my bedding and didn't understand that he was to only do the sheets and pillowcases ... Smile )
