Yes its is now official! we sold our house and bought our Kersbrook house yesterday. All signed, sealed and delivered. Finally! Here are some numbers for you - trying to get Ian out ov Vale Park - 15 years, trying to convince Ian to move to acerage 5.5 years, Seriously looking for an acerage - 18 months, number of houses made offers on and lost -3, time to sell/buy house once we thought the whole thing was a loss were walking away to start again from scratch - 4 hours!
I know Monday night the whole thing was over, we had had two offers on our house but they were too low, the house we want to buy wouldn't budge, Ian had asked for our deposit back and the whole thing was over. I was devastated. at this time a year there is nothing on the market in the Adelaide hills and it just gets worse over winter. I really thought that we would looking at another 6-9 months at least. Then wamo, in the space of 4 hours offers where made prices were negotiated and the whole thing was done. We waited the 2 days cooling off and now we officially have an acerage in Kersbrook!
We will be moving in either 2 or 3 weeks - nothing like sprinting the last leg of a cross country race! I spent friday enrolling the kids in their new school, researching heaters, buying school uniforms, telling one of the kids schools they will be leaving next thursday (last day of term).
