My Socorro house finally sold!!!

July 2017 – My Socorro House

It feels like it has taken forever, but my house finally closed today.  I moved to Albuquerque more than a year ago.  I am so excited that it is finally gone!!

It made a great first house.  I learned so much I know things I will look for in my next house… things I liked and things I didn’t.

I made some mistakes in the buying process.  I was too excited to be getting a house and failed to check it out as much as I should have.  To be honest though, I didn’t know what I should be looking for.  I’m sure I’ll make mistakes on the next house I buy, but they won’t be the same mistakes.

All in all though, it was a cozy place for me.  It was home for many years for me.  It’s a place that has many, many memories for me.  I wrote a post some time ago about being grateful for my house.  Reading it now brings back how grateful I am that I lived there for so long.

Over the last year, when I have gone down to do things on my house, it definitely has still felt like my house.  Everything about it is familiar.  I know the exact shade of paint on the walls, and the shade of paint under the top layer and the shade of paint under the layer under the top layer.

But when I’m gone, I don’t miss it.  My house in Albuquerque feels like home now too.  It’s not even technically my house; it’s just a rental.

I felt a little sad the last time I left my house.  I hope the new owner takes care of the little tree in the back yard.

But today, I didn’t stop by the house at all.  I just went to the title company and signed the papers.  Today, I am grateful for what it was for me and also relieved and grateful that it’s not something I have to worry about anymore.  No more maintenance or utility bills for a house I’m not living in.  No more having it on the back of my mind.

I feel… free.

And I am glad to be one step closer to whatever comes next.  While I’m not quite sure what that is going to be, I have some ideas about what it is shaping up to look like.  I think the future is going to hold good things for me.
