Firstly let me apologize for not being around more this summer. The past two months have been completely insane and so many things have changed that I can barely keep track.
You may remember that BF and I broke up at the start of the summer (and I was NOT expecting it). It really hit home and made me do a lot of reasssesment/ re-evaluation on what I was doing with life, my priorities etc.
Soo fast forward and I am downsizing :) I have been speaking to my real estate agent off and on for about 2 years, but would never make a move because I always thought that xBF and I would be living together at some point. Well this gave me the perfect opportunity to re-investigage :) You may remember that I haven't really loved my house in several years, but with xBF it was managable. Now the maintenance on the property was too much for me to handle. Turns out property values in my little part of the city have sky rocketed, so I decided now is the perfect time to downsize.
Assuming the house passes the home inspection next week, as of today my house is sold :) I bought an amazing condo overlooking the lake in the downtown core. My Best friend lives one building over and another friend is in the building. Its a brand new building with floor to ceiling windows and the minutes I walked in I new it was home. There is an amazing trail right beside it that runs down the waterfront for miles for my morning/evening dog walks.
The best part is, I will be putting down 20% on the new place, paying off my car and LOC and over half ot my student loan.
I am leaving on Friday for vacation (paid for by my rewards card!) but will try and catch up on these posts before then!
I hope everyone is well!
