The address is the same, but it doesn't look like I live here anymore

The last few days have been incredibly hectic here at home. We've been getting our place ready for showing. Yes, we're putting our home up on the market and planning to pull up stakes and move East. East to Halifax, NS. I will spare everyone the details now, but let's just say that this has been a really stressful last month.

Anyways, a big thank you to all our friends who came over on short notice to help us pack and cart stuff out of here. And to friends who let us store our stuff at their homes.

So now our home looks amazing! Except it doesn't look like I live here anymore. That and I have no idea where anything is anymore.

So now we wait to see if all that work pays off in dollars. It's probably not the best time to be a seller in Vancouver, but we're keeping our fingers crossed.

the neighbourhood won't feel the same without you Justin. This is an exciting time for you and I wish all the best.

do you have a MLS listing for us to be nosy?

Justin said...

The MLS number is V740988. There are still no photos on it, nor a heck of a lot of information. I'm gonna be following up with our realtor on that today.

Probably more interesting is the house we want in Halifax MLS 00132280.

Thanks Jesse, I will miss the neighbourhood. I don't think I've ever felt so much part of a neighbourhood as I have here. It'll be hard to say goodbye, but I'm also looking forward to becoming part of a new neighbourhood.

George said...

You're off to Halifax too?

Boy oh boy, will miss seeing you on bar Justin. Much success over there! Hope you continue to update us on here.

Thanks for the well wishes George! I think you'll still get to see me behind the bar at Main street for some time. Our plan was to leave Vancouver in January, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen unless we find a buyer for our condo here. I guess all we can do is wait and see.

This blog will continue though, regardless of where we might find ourselves!
