Our old house has finally sold. I won't discuss the particulars of the deal or the buyers, because I don't want say anything legally actionable, which I probably would.
Average time on market when we put the house up for sale: 60 days
Length of time after we put the house up for sale after which housing market started to tank: 30 days
Length of time we budgeted for paying for two houses: 5 months
Length of time we ended up paying for two houses: 10 months
And what was it that finally sold the house? Probably the goat sacrifices.
Wait, what am I saying? It was definitely
the goat sacrifices!
Well, at least the kids are happy, because we can stop having Ramen noodles and goat burgers for every meal.
