Yes, my friends my small town heritage house is SOLD!!
After weeks of tough negotiations....I did it, I sold it myself!!

It was a lot of work, but worth it.
A few times this week I didn't even think it was going to go through.
It got so bad that one of the Lawyers threatened to walk away
....meaning that we would have to start all over again......dummy....grrr

This was the house that turned into a rental property, that eventually got trashed by a tenant.
Well, I managed to get a buyer, a mortgage for them and I gave them the down-payment myself - a 2nd mortgage.
He is a handyman and I know he will shape that house backup in no time!

Sold...yeah....boldest thing I have ever done in my life.

I done good!

Thank you guys for all your support....I could feel it all the way over here!



  1. I admire you for selling on your own. I could have saved myself a ton on commissions if I did but my house was too far away. Finally selling it after renting it our for a year. This is still a strange market.

  2. Good for you! I know first hand how tough it is to sell a home on your own...I did it x's2 when i was a single mom!
    So, i high five ya...
    What an old beauty you had...just my kinda house, love older historical home..
