Selling our house....for REAL!


Our house is online finally; on funda.nl.

It's for real now!

To be honest, I'm not feeling sad or anything. I just hope it will be sold very soon. It wasn't my house anymore from the day we left, in 2009.

I do have very fond memories of living there; the feeling that we were on holiday for quite some time after we moved on the 29th of April 2005. On the pictures on funda it looks grey and dull outside. And the garden doesn't look attractive at all. But during spring and summer it looks so colorful! We loved the large grass area with the small play area in front of the house. And I loved the attic. My favourite place of the house. I loved the fact that we could walk to church, walk to the AH, walk to the library and the SOT (SpeelOTheek), walk to the swimmingpool, walk to the nature area, walk to friends...

Compared to 6 years ago, it has even become a better place to live as a homeschooler now, since there's one (to be) homeschooling family in the same street and there's an other family in the village. And the LEA (LPA) is ok too ;)).

So, still not sad, but happy memories! :)

It's funny: the last time my friend P was visiting us, she told her kids: "this might be the last time we'll be in this house. So have one more good look around." At that point, we weren't planning to sell the house at all. We would come back after three years and live there again. But (of course ;))) she was right....
We don't know what will happen in 2012. We want to keep all options open en we want to be without a house (=burden) to be free to move wherever we are led to go....

It looks wonderful! Don't you have pictures from the summer time that you can put on the site? It can make a huge difference in attracting prospective buyers.

Hoi Es, nee, geen idee wat we hierna gaan doen. Heb meteen m'n tekst aangepast :))

Hi Ciska, I know. We might want to update the pictures after spring :). If we would have summer pictures now, it would look like the house has been for sale for quite some time. But I totally agree with what you say about attracting buyers!

We love knowing there is another Home-Edding family in the village :) I hope your house sells very quickly and you are soon free of the "burden" and can follow your hearts wherever they take you....but you'd better stay in touch wherever you end up! xxx

Het huis dat ons weer leven in blies... maar eigenlijk meer de mensen die er woonden.
It makes ME sad! Daarvoor ben ik Belg zeker en dus geboren met een baksteen in m'n maag.

O wat prachtig geschreven! Duidelijk dat je helemaal 'geland' bent in de Uk en dan niet qua woonplek, maar voor jezelf. Mirjam is geland daar waar ze moet landen, bij zichzelf.
Ik hoop met je mee dat het huis gauw verkocht is. Idd, een hele last minder.
