Selling the House (Colorado Springs, CO)

I have to apologize for not posting in quite a while.  My time has been totally consumed with all things related to selling a house.  It’s almost as if I have a “job” again 🙂

Every day we find ourselves painting, staining, cleaning, etc.,  and if we’re not doing that, it’s another trip to Home Depot for something or dealing with a contractor for drywall texture repairs, painters, gutter repair/replacement, or concrete driveway repairs…

I just haven’t had the time or desire to update the blog… besides, I figured who wants to hear about the mundane stuff related to selling a house.  I appreciate the folks that inquired about our status when I didn’t post for a while.  At least I know some people are reading the blog:)

In other news – We are still living in the Urban Escape Vehicle.  We were parked in the driveway hooked up to my 50amp outlet when someone complained to the local code enforcement “police”.   I have to assume it was a realtor that complained because there are currently a couple other houses on our street that are for sale.  We are at the end of a cul-de-sac and the Coach had been parked there for a couple years before we took off on our full-time adventure(s) in May of this year.  Oh well… we just moved over to the local Elks Lodge for a reasonable $350 per month and have been commuting to the house each day to get it ready to sell.

Hopefully we can get the house on the market by the beginning of December.

Meanwhile, I took a quick Thanksgiving break and drove the Silverado down to my brother and Mom’s in Casa Grande, AZ on Monday.  Stilla stayed at the Coach and the house  to help Jennifer (my oldest daughter) with baby-sitting  the grandson while she is at work.  I intend to get back by next Monday, in time for the new carpet to get installed.

Maybe I can find a reasonably-priced cargo trailer while I’m down here to help us with our “stuff”.

Please stay tuned… I’ll keep posting as time allows.  Time to go mingle with the relatives that are showing up now for Thanksgiving at the “dirt farm” in Casa Grande.

  1. Hey David! I was wondering how you were doing and if you were headed our way for Thanksgiving so very happy to read your update. We had hoped you had time to stop by–we had a nice wide gate included with our new fence to accommodate the coach–but sure do understand the busyness created by getting a house ready to sell. Our best wishes to you this holiday season, and best of luck with the house. Julie & Scott

    1. Thanks Julie… busy times indeed. Hope to get down to the sunshine soon 🙂

  2. Stilla & Dave,
    Darn Driveway Nazis! We’ll keep out fingers crossed that you get a quick sale so you can get back on the road. Wishing you a happy, healthy holiday season!
    Donna & Mike
