When Maya left for college, Jeanine and I started to think about down sizing. Our current home of 15 years has served us extremely well while there were five of us under the same roof. Now that we are empty nesters, we are starting to think about a next home that is better sized for this new phase of our lives. We had talked about putting the house up for sale this spring but decided to postpone by a year when I failed at retirement and found myself in the fast lane again. All this was until Jeanine learned of a potentially interested buyer who came to look at the house today. They appear interested and it certainly would be convenient to sell the house after one showing and without a realtor commission. It remains to be seen if we will be able to agree on a price or if their interest wanes but it has us seriously thinking about the possibility.
