If you’ve been reading for a while, you’ll remember that I used to have panic attacks about this blog. (I mean, really serious anxiety attacks where I almost deleted the whole thing in the middle of the night because I was freaking out.)
I was thinking about this because yesterday Joey (the only person who reads my blog and knows me in real life) sent me a message saying, “Everyone who reads your blog would never believe how shy you are in person!”
That made me realize, wow, I have gotten really comfortable talking to you guys. In fact, I have gotten really comfortable talking to you about the worst parts of myself!
So, I hope the blog is enjoyable for you, because it has been incredibly helpful to me.
(As an aside, some people have asked how I could have been a stripper if I am so shy. The issue is that I get paralyzed with shyness when I have to talk about myself. I didn’t have to do that when I was stripping.)
Meeting with my real estate agent
Ann said the updates on my house looked great. But, regrettably, she didn’t have comparable sales to start talking about a list price. (She asked if she could use the time to have her interior designer stage my house, so they spent two hours doing that instead.)
She did say that a house down the street recently sold for $400K, but I can’t believe that would be comparable to my house. From my research, I am thinking I would list at about $299K. She will be here Friday afternoon to go over recent sales, so I should know the list price then!
In the meantime, I updated my spreadsheet on house sale numbers.
Credit Card Debt: Believe it or not, my credit card debt has dropped a little bit. (It was about $50K when I created the spreadsheet last fall, but down to about $44,500 when I started writing about it in October. It is about $43,000 now.)
RV Down Payment: I’ve decided to sell my car for my down payment, so that $10K has been removed as an expense.
Original Post: If you want a chart to explain each of the headings, you can see the original post.
|Sale Price||Less Selling Fees||Cash Net after Mtg pay off||CC Debt||RV Down||CC Paid||CC Remains||Gain/Loss on House purchase/upgrades|
With a sale price of $299K, I would have about $4,000 credit card debt remaining. Thinking in smaller numbers helps curtail my desire to spend $500 at a time, so I am going to see how much of that $4,000 I can get paid down between now and the sale.
Hope you are doing well!
