Selling House

29 comments


I’ve put my house up for sale, the housing market is manic. House went on line yesterday and I’ve already had one viewing and 2 more Saturday. I’m looking for a slightly smaller house with a lawn, for my little dogs. Nearer the shops etc too. Trying not to think about whoever buys it looking after my frogs and newts etc and the birds. I’ll have to quiz them. It will be a wrench leaving my home. I have loads of plants in pots so they will be a good start for new garden. I did see a lovely little 2 bedroom end cottage near my daughter and shops, but it had gone the day viewed it. So sad. I am now rather stressed out trying to keep house and garden clean and tidy lol:-)

Good luck with selling your house and finding a new place.
I'm a great believer in everything for a reason, so perhaps the cottage near your daughter wouldn't have been right for you
The perfect place is still out there waiting for you xx

Best wishes and good luck, Bornagain. I’d be like you and the others, concerned about the new owners looking after your well loved garden and all the wildlife you’ve cared for over the years. I’d get my clipboard out with the next viewing!!!😁

Ba, I bet you will find a lovely house to call your home before too long. Good luck in your search and subsequent move.

Wow! thanks all for your optimism lol It's quite nerve wracking as i'm not by nature a tidy person, I would love to be one though as I love it when everywhere is tidy. I'll let you all know how I'm getting on and it will be quite a challenge to start a new garden. If I'm sensible I will have mainly shrubs and and I have a few roses in pots to start me off. Also lots of other plants in pots. I've just found roots growing on a lovely laurel cutting, think picturata, Which I put in water few of weeks ago. I would like a small old house with a lawn to keep dogs happy, who knows ... it may be out there:-))

I really hope the home of your dreams is out there and that your mission to find it will be a success. I think you have wanted a lawn for a while now so I just want to wish you all the best in your search and hope that you are able to find exactly what you are looking for.

best of luck. If the market "is manic" then you should be able to wrangle a good deal. Sad that you missed on the "perfect" one... but hopefully there are others whose timeline better fits your own. You will look back on these crazy days in wonder... but you'll make it.

Best wishes for your search, I hope it won't be too long before you find the place just right. Keep us posted.

I do hope it all goes well Ba, and you find just the house you want, with a lawn and much more you'll really enjoy.
I know Lottie loves my long lawn, we play tennis and frisbee, and if I don't feel like walking, we just play.
I'm sure your little house is out there waiting..:))

Thanks me dearios, I just keep worrying that my house may sell and I won't have found anywhere I like and end up homeless. I'll just end up sitting on my sofa somewhere? with my three little dogs under a tent like structure, mumbling to myself and asking what went wrong lol

Oh no you won’t!!!!

No good..... needs so much work doing and there is a right of way over garden for house next door! No mention of that in particulars:-| My friend and I went into our favourite little cafe and had tea and tea cakes et bonne bavarder. Forgotten lots of french, no lesson since beginning of March:-(

Thanks Lincs, such a stressful time lol:-)

I hope not but a condition of sale could be that you make everything flat as a board and covered with grass or deduct the cost to do that by the buyer from the price of the house.

Hi Loosestrife, every now and then I wonder if I will really move or change my mind and stay:-))
