Actually I'm not excited, I haven't quite connected the dots. I still can't believe this is real.
Yeah, the back yard need some work (and a Koi pond), the kitchen needs some work, particularly the counters are screaming "granite!" The MBR shower is plastic but aspires to be tile or granite.
The view from my bedroom is sublime!!!
I expected this in New Mexico. I had never even dreamed that I could succeed in L.A. There was a disjunct aberration in the market and I snuck in and offered far more than my competition. Evidently none of them realized this place was "to die for" and
I didn't have to die!
I've been house hunting back in L.A. now for a year and a half, I've seen about 500 houses. I've made offers on several, but glad now I always lost out. My new house is the best house I saw out of the lot, and I reached for the moon. In fact I bought the moon and the stars, because I realized that my competitors had probably not been reaching for the moon for a year and a half, and I realized that the stars cost a lot more than the moon.
So I'm packing up in Trailerville. I always wanted to avoid that topic on the forum because it made me feel so bad. I've been living in an RV park, and I'm moving out in less than 10 days, I'm selling my 5th wheel trailer, I'm moving back to civilization. In a month I'll be living in my new home and my 5th wheel trailer will be sold, and my days in Trailerville will be behind me.
I've been living in about 270 sq.ft. in a gravel slot not a lot larger. I'm moving to a beautiful house on a quarter acre. My dog saw the property for the first time early this week, and I'm glad he didn't have a heart attack! (Actually he took a dump on his new domain.)
I'll be moving in the early days of June. Hope to have the trailer sold before 4th of July!
