This is about one thing and one, thing only: the house sale.
This is one of those rare occasions when Barely Husband and I have been a team. We both need the money from the sale to move on.
It’s been frustrating, to say the least. We initially signed with the Estate Agents we dealt with before, who were local and extremely positive about the sale and the value.
After six months of frustration, we have many tales of how the very tame dog became a problem, how I became the selling agent and how we decided to move to another agent even through threats of double commission.
It’s been shit. There’s no other way of saying it. In my bucket list, that’s the item I haven’t been able to advance on.
We both need the house sale to get enough money to buy our own place. I can’t afford to buy my house without my 50% investment in ‘our’ house.
The agents I hired (I take the blame) were meant to be the local best. Instead, I got next to nothing. 6 months and 5 viewings. That’s all we got.
It’s a nice house and it’s frustrating. I would stay here if I could afford to. But I don’t have enough money to buy his part. I wish I did.
We’ve just bought our way out of the first agent and are moving onto a new one. All we need is to move forward. Please!
