In December, my Grandma moved into my parent’s house. She’d had a few falls over the years and around Thanksgiving it got so bad that she couldn’t live on her own anymore.
She has lived in Florida since before I was born so, having her in Dallas has been a blast for me.
Unfortunately, there is still one big loose end to tie up in Florida – her house. It’s in a lower-income area of Florida and is pretty old. She’s taken care of it, so it should do pretty well. Plus, she paid almost nothing for it when she bought it.
Though I’ve never talked about it on the blog, one of my goals is to buy a few houses, get renters in them, and make a decent future living as a landlord. My kind grandma knows this and asked me if I wanted to sell the house for her.
How could I refuse?
So now I’m in the process of helping her sell her home. I’m contacting the realtors, making sure all the house stuff get taken care of, and will be negotiating the final deal – all from 1,100 miles away!
I’m taking you with me as I sell this house. I’ll be blogging everything from finding the realtor to getting the house cleaned to finalizing the deal.
You’ll learn with me as I figure out how this whole house selling things works.
Have you ever sold a house? What surprised you the most?
