Selling and Buying a home in a down market

I’ve decided to take the plunge and move to the city.  Yes, it’s true!  However, I still own a home and plan to sell and then buy another in the city. Thankfully, I’m blessed to be able to do this move because I work virtually for an amazing company in LA.  So I’m extremely thankful to be able to move and still work for the same company – and to do what I love to do.  But I’m nervous.  I recently put my house up for sale – and have had a few people look at it. No offers yet.

I’m at the point that I’m scared that I’ll end of staying where I am for a while, because of the market.  But deep down, I can’t stand it.  I really want to move now.  I know they say – if it happens, it happens.  Everything happens for a reason.  But I just know deep down that this would be a good move for me.  But I’m SO impacient. Terribly bad.  And I just can’t stand the waiting.

So, if you could… say a little prayer for me – and I hope that moving is meant to be and that it will happen.  I just have to have faith that this is the right thing, and that it will happen in time.

Any thoughts for me re: selling and buying in a down market?  Comments are appreciated! 🙂 Thanks much!

Thinkpad — here I come!

So I broke down and ordered a ThinkPad, moreover – I spent money!  EEK!  That’s just not like me to make a big purchase like that… but I did it.  And I’m really happy with it.  Just got it today and really enjoy it.  It’s going to take some getting used to, because it’s definitely smaller and just different than a regular laptop – but I think we’ll bond well and become great friends!

When I received it, I thought I’d tweet about it on twitter.  I received some harsh reviews on the Thinkpads and now it’s making me wonder if I made the right decision.  Too late now, so I hope it’s a great system for me and I look forward to digging into it.

I’m super busy this week with work, so I haven’t and won’t have much time to play around with it – so maybe this weekend we’ll get some along time! 🙂


P.S. I think I’ve figured out what ‘I am’ when it comes to computers.  I’m a Mac Lover and a PC User!

I Wish I Knew…

Sometimes you make a decision – hoping it’s the right one… but deep down you just wish you knew what the right decision is.  A mentor of mine has always said – listen to yourself, listen to the universe.  The universe will never give you more than you can handle.  And I truly embody that and believe it, but…

I really want to move closer to the city – for many reasons.  To be closer to family, friends and an airport!  With my job it’s easy for me to relocate – because I work from home.  So I put my house up for sale and found a house closer to the city.

Today I placed an offer on the new house and it’s been accepted – contingent upon my current home selling.  I have until December 1st to sell my home.  If I don’t sell it, I lose the new house.  Or if someone else puts an offer in, I have 48 hours to come up with the money.

My heart is telling me that this is the right move and that it would be a good move for me.  I really truly think I’d be happier too.  But now I’m so scared that my current home won’t sell.  I’ve been saying a lot of prayers, but I just wish I knew…

Say a prayer for me.

The Beach Outside My Window

How amazing would it be to wake up every morning – look out your picture window and see the beach and the bluest ocean you’ve ever seen.  Great huh!  We’ll for the past few days… I’ve woke up to just that.  I’m currently in Cape Cod for business and for some reason, was put into a very nice room.  (Keep in mind that I would have been totally satisfied with anything).  But for some reason, I was blessed with a room AND a view.  It truly is amazing and it makes you realize that this world we live in is SO large and it’s full of beauty and awe.

Lots of people travel – in and out of the United States.  Some do so much international traveling that they don’t actually get to see the beauty of the United States of America.  And I think that’s a shame.  There are so many amazing areas in America and so many people miss them.  Who would have known that I would come to Cape Cod and have one right outside my window.  It’s truly amazing and it makes me appreciate our land more and more each day.

I challenge each of you to find a hidden beauty within your area.  I guarantee you’ll find it.  You need to look around you and realize that we live in such a beautiful country – and we should enjoy the amazing things ALL around us.

Enjoy all around you – it’s worth it! 🙂
