Been pretty busy lately, I didn't even have a chance to enter anything in the conspiracy challenge, and what's worse, I think the wife has packed up & lost the fluid for my fog machine & I haven't even tried it out yet.

We put an offer in on a house a couple blocks away from ours, conditional on the sale of ours. Now our house is so nice & tidy I don't want to move anymore. Anybody want to move to Burlington, we'd be right in the same neighborhood! :-D

-edit.... took off the photos I originally had in this post & replaced with the one-page collage Imade to put on the back of the feature sheet.

Yeah man when I moved we cleaned our house and it looked so great we were edgy on moving too. :-D
New place (possibly) sounds great, good luck slippy. Moving is always fun!

how about some more info on your house, like size and such, and how far down to the lake ?

I could trade you a 3 bedroom apartment in iceland, similar price.. your's a bit cheaper though :)
09/18/2005 06:48:47 PM · #9
Geez, you can't even touch a house for that price here in California :( My condo alone is about that much when I bought it :( Time to move out to South Dakota or somewhere remote...

Make sure to take lots of beautiful pics of the inside and post it on Craigslist every day for a couple weeks. This is how I sold our condo, worked like a charm... and no realtor's fees!

No wonder I get so stressed...18 months ago, over period of two months I got married, sold and bought a house and moved from Australia to the USA. Oh....and I had a baby! lol <breathes deeply and pops in a yoga dvd>

Best of luck on the sale slippy!

Thanks folks. Hmm, if I move to Iceland will I be guaranteed a ribbon? Hopefully we'll be market-ready on Tuesday.

Our realtors are my mother & father-in-law, which makes it much less stressful for me, plus, they give us back their commission. :-)

Is that Marriage, or the Wedding itself that's stressful?

It is amazing to me the price differnce with homes across the world. I live in rural TN and I have never seen a home cost over $200,000--that includes farm land. My house is small. Only 1300 square feet with 1.5 acers and I only paid $38,000. My house payment is only $280 per month. My taxes are only $350 a year. I think I spelled acers wrong. Oh, I am a hick it doesn't matter.

And just over the state line in Western North Carolina, this exact description would go for no less than 150,000. Go figure.

At one point about 8 years ago, the land and houses/condos/etc in my area were more than the Atlanta area.

Well homes in Nashville are pretty pricey but not where I live. It usually takes two years to even sell a home.
09/18/2005 11:19:59 PM · #22
wow -- $38,000 for a 1300 square foot house on 1 1/2 acres --- WOW! Here in southern Oregon that wouldn't even buy a storage unit! I think we should sell out and retire to wherever you are Mandy!

Hmm - Our flat is 850 sq ft and comes with no land (not even a foot of garden). In fact, we don't even own the land it is on (we have a 100 year lease). Price: £250k ($450k). We live in a cheap area of London.

Is rural Tennessee any good for jobs/transport??

I just bought a 2100 sqft on 1 acre of land for 35,000 USD. This weekend was the first weeked I stayed in it. It is located in Dierks Arkansas. Wich is a small little town with a population of 1230. It is conviniently located between about 6 lakes. So I say bring on the water/landscape challenges.

Not sure on the conversion ratios to US$, but about a year ago, I bought a 3 bedroom 1st floor flat in Glasgow, Scotland for £80k, and my brother bought a 2 bedroom 1st floor flat on the south coast for £150k.

Amazing....
