[May 25,2015] Monday
Our last, lurking, financial concern was our attempt to sell the Condo where Molly’s mother had lived. We had thought about renting it, but didn’t really want to be in a position of maintaining the financial responsibility and risk, and having to find a property manager to take care of the day-to-day stuff. So, we had decided to leave it empty, pay the monthly HOA fee, utilities, and annual property tax bill, and just cross our fingers and hope it wouldn’t sit on the market much longer.
Well, we got a call from our real estate agent, Martha, on Friday, telling us that two people had looked at it and made offers. One would be a cash settlement, not needing to go through all the mortgage funding hoops, met our expectation on price, and would be able to close on June 8th, a week before we leave on our mission. So, we signed that one on Monday.
We are truly grateful that things have fallen into place all along the way to make this possible for us. We truly feel blessed.
