The past month has been an incredible time for our family! Our original plan was to remain in our current home until our daughter graduates high school, but that changed…suddenly. While driving around running errands a little more than a month ago we noticed two brand new subdivisions going up and we realized that if we didn’t sell our home now, we would soon be competing with hundreds of empty NEW homes. So, we made the decision to sell and gave ourselves all of about a month to get ready to list it.
That my friends is a LOT to do in one month, but we did it. Not only did we get it ready to sell, we had a contract on the house signed in five days and for more than we expected to sell it for! The extra proceeds will be much needed as we enter into the homesteading phase, which is really about a year away. For now we will be living in a nice rental not far from our current home.
All this with an almost 2-year old in the house and me still going to college to finish up my Associate’s Degree. It is almost too much, but through prayers and answers to those prayers we are able to press onward.
My son (who lives with his mom out of State) flew in for a couple of weeks so the first thing we did was head out to the farm for some father-and-son time. We enjoyed our time together and actually got a few things done around the farm, but that is a story I will hopefully get to soon!

Congratulations! Great news. What are the plans until your new house is built?
We’ll be living in a rental not far from our current home. While summer is upon us and with no electricity at the farm yet we won’t be out there as much. But when Fall arrives the activity will take a break-neck pace!
Congrats! Sounds to me like you made the right move. We did something similar as part of our transition to homesteading, selling our house while the market was hot (and not long before it collapsed) and moving into a rental house. Lots of disruption but hopefully it will pay rich dividends for you down the road!
