Now comes the tough part. We've been living in the pristine conditions of a show-ready house for a few months, and that has all been taken over by the smell of cardboard and packing paper. While searching for a new home with our agent, hoping to find something early this week, we are also in a bit of a rush to pack up our current residence as the new owners move-in the third week in August!
Some things that we are keeping in mind for a new house:
- "new" can be a relative term, and just because it is a few years old doesn't mean the basement has been developed.
- "developed" is also a relative term - some basements we've seen would need to be gutted and start from scratch. Been there, done that, with a scar or two to prove it - don't need to do it again right away.
One thing is certain: the next four weeks will be very busy!
