Bought a house, sold a house.

Good morning! We have a house! At least, that's what our Realtor told us yesterday evening. :-)
It was a busy day yesterday, as our Realtor had to send the forms back to the escrow company twice for corrections.  The first time she found several errors and the second time I found one. Nothing major, but you want every figure absolutely correct, right?
Then we ran to the bank to wire the money. The good thing was all the signing of the papers was done by DocuSign. Didn't need to go to any one's office. Did everything from my puter. It was so easy, it was kind of scary. But nice since we're 2800 miles from Vegas and didn't have to go out there.  :-)
And here's a few pics....
The patio faces east, so nice morning sun and afternoon shade.
Living room.
Kitchen with dining area in front.
Laundry closet.
Master bath with walk-in closet. A walk-in shower is across from toilet.
View back toward the kitchen and front door. Garage is through the door in the kitchen
And floor plan. Nice, compact, 1200 sq ft. 2 bedroom, 2 bath home. Perfect for retirement.
We hope to go out sometime in November to get the place painted and some stuff in it. We plan on using it for vacations until we actually retire in 1-3 years.
Our realtor will over see getting repairs done and the floors and carpets power cleaned.  She's been great throughout this whole process.
And we do have our other house sold. (I mean our motor home).  The new owners stopped by Monday afternoon with a check, and we signed over the title. They were still working on finding a place to store it as they don't have a set-up at their house like we do. They plan on picking up the mo-ho Fri. or Saturday.
So, a whirlwind weekend. Bought a home and sold a home.
And unfortunately, now back to work for what looks to be a very busy week. 


  1. Well congratulations! I am a firm believer that a good realtor is worth their weight in gold.
    Congrats on selling the mo ho, too. You can always get a smaller one (like a Roadtrek or some such) if you decide to travel and see the country that you haven't seen yet. :-)
    Hope your week is going well!

  2. Well, it sure looks like the stars have lined up perfectly! Selling the Moho and closing on the new house is just wonderful! The house is so cute! I would be great to see it once you have it all done. I like the separate bedroom plan, privacy for guests and the hosts.

    Congratulations !! I think you both will be very happy with your new purchase. Once you finally settle in Las Vegas I think you'll love the area and the proximity to the west. It will be a weather shock for sure, but a good one.
