After a good night’s sleep, I am feeling quite refreshed, and happy at last evening’s development. Yes, it’s going to be depressing to have to take probably 11 to 13 thousand out of the savings we have accumulated for our truck. But with the money we will be saving in condo expenses monthly, we should make that back up in about 10 months. And then we will be in the black!
I was thinking last night though of how lucky we were to have this “fall into our lap”, so to speak. There were so many factors that had to come together. Although it was an unpleasant experience, if our renter hadn’t moved out, we wouldn’t have been in a position to sell in the first place. Then, out of all the Realty USA realtors that work out of Schenectady, I happened to pick the one who was in touch with a potential buyer. We were anxious to get the show on the road, so we called her to get together as soon as the condo was empty. If we hadn’t met with her at that time, we wouldn’t have known she was showing the condos to this person on the 17th of January, and we wouldn’t have spent a week and a half doing that major makeover. Who knows if we would have had the same result if she had seen the place in its pre-makeover condition. Wow, that’s a lot of coincidences.
This isn’t the first time in my life I have been the recipient of what seems to be like a lot of lucky breaks that all matched up for a great outcome. Wherever it may come from, or whatever it might be caused by, I’m once again grateful for it this morning.
