Status Update

We continue to have a lot of showings for our house. Another family came through last night. We received a call from our real estate agent after the showing and the family is wanting to have another look on Friday.

It only takes one buyer. Perhaps this is the family.

We have started a virtual review of potential properties in the Kingston area. The good news is that we have a lot of choices. And, if we don’t mind a 20 or 30 minute commute, we can readily find nice homes on waterfront properties with several acres of land. The bad news is that we have to try and find some time over the next few weeks to begin the process of finding our new home.

I can tell that the family is under some stress and I hope that this part of the transition goes smoothly. Changing a job and changing location does create stress and I think we will have to take a bit of a break once things have settled down in a few months.

In the meantime, back to the daily grind of detailing the house.

    Hi, Richard,

    What do the kids think of this move? I grew up in a Banker family and we moved about 12 times by the time I had finished University. To me, always exciting meeting new friends and seeing new locations, but for my brother, a bit of a recluse, he had difficulty adjusting….

    Your description of potential proterties in Kingston appear exciting….this our dream as well, to ultimately locate to a smaller urban or rural location with some property around us.

    Keep us posted. R

    When we started talking about the possibility of a new role with a new company, I wanted to make sure that the family was onside before I even thought about accepting an offer.

    We are fortunate in that our two oldest are largely through their university years. Our youngest is 11 and he is quite excited. We have not moved around very much. During our married life, we have spent 18 years in London and 10 years in our current home.

    I’ll certainly post about the new location once we have reached that point in the move.
