Countdown to Retirement: 45 Days to go!

Finally, the house is ready to sell! The "For Sale" sign goes up in the front yard in the morning.

This week we finished all the repairs and landscaped the yard. John power washed the deck and re-sealed it. I had the carpet, tile & grout cleaned. We cleaned out all the closets and I pulled together a large load of stuff to donate to a friend's garage sale. We continue to pack as we go and the stack of boxes in the garage keeps getting higher.

We've staged every room of the house for showing and I think a potential buyer will be favorably impressed with all the nice amenities in this house. This has been a great home and we've always been happy here, but it's time to let someone else enjoy it while we can get on with our retirement in Costa Rica. We are hoping for a quick sale so we can start our next adventure soonest.
