We're lucky to be living in Worthington, OH. Or should I say, we're lucky to be selling a house in Worthington, OH. After one month on the market and believe it or not, two showings, we're in contract.
Our realtor was very optimistic. "Houses are still selling in Worthington" he said. He was right. We happen to be in the right place at the wrong time.
My heart goes out to all those people who have their own plans stalled by a lousy real estate market. Monica Moshenko, host of Disability News & Views Radio Show, and her son Alex are trying to sell their house in upstate New York. They have ambitious travel plans to tour the US in an RV as they take "the pulse of America and the largest minority in America -- people with disabilities." They are ready to go but won't until the house sells.
Monica, Alex: Steve and I hope things fall into place for you soon.
And that goes for the rest of America on the move. Or hoping to be soon...
As for me, it looks like I'm Iowa bound as of December 5th. My husband is waiting patiently for me there. Soon, honey, soon.
