I recently sold my home on the fifth day it was listed. The closing will be in a couple of weeks. My plan was to purchase my dream home but there was not enough time to find the perfect home for me. I don’t want to settle for a house because I need one. I want to purchase one because I love it.
When I was out visiting houses I never saw one that spoke to me and made me fall in love. I came to the conclusion that now is not the time to spend that much money on something I will hate when I get up the next morning and be stuck hating it for the next five years or so.
So where am I going to live? I am moving into a beautiful apartment for now. I’m taking time off from having to cut grass, plant flowers, and treat weeds. Someone else is maintaining the yard I get to enjoy. I can call the maintenance man if there is a need and I don’t have to pay for it.
I’ve lived in homes for the last twenty years taking care of all of the homeowner duties. For the next year I’ll be on a break from that. I will focus on my passions.
Maybe by next year I’ll find my dream home or build it.
