Back in the Saddle Again

Postby Petros » Tue Jan 17, 2017 8:44 am

Yesterday we signed the papers relisting this place, hoping and praying for a speeduy and aderquate sale and the right spot opening for the move.

Mais oui, mon vieux Onslow, we have taken on our same guy again. Despite yoiur persuasive remarks and the pleas of hungry realtors in the area, we know him, like him - and do not believe the preceding non-sale to have been his fault.

But, your intercessions are solicited.

I guess if your realtor was persuasive enough to convince you to return to him, he can theoretically use that same power of persuasion to sell your house to someone else. :biggrin:

And yeah, it wouldn't hurt to pray for this guy!

Thanks for all prayers. Early days yet - our man when we talked to him said he had an associate with a posdsibly interested client waiting in the wings. It will be intersting.

I would like see the face on the realtor listing Onslow's place. Or the one writing up a description that might satisfy Mrs. Bucket if their place went on the market.

We have our fiorst showing tonight -0 this will be the chap what was foreshadowed.

If we pursue the "ark is a-moverin'" analogy to its logical conclusion...
Noah stayed in the ark as it floated to Ararat.
In our situation:
We would pull your house up by the roots and transport it on an open trailer to its new lot, miles away.
If the house is a keeper, but the lot is not...
Seems reasonable.
Does that float your boat?

Somehow I missed that one until today. Intriguing thought. It would have to be two trailers, though, unless we ditched the annex.

For part of my Texas year, I lived in a big old house that had been moved from point A to point B. It was too wide for the streets, so they sawed it in half and then on the new site shoved the halves back together. At the midline on every storey you had to watch your step crossing the midline so as not to trip - they didn't match it up perfectly.

Yes, there are critical moments when a thing simply has to be done exactamente.
Find the best carpenters you can, perhaps from Cholula, Estado de Puebla and promise them a bonus case of Dos Equis AFTER the work has been completed.
Cholula is famed as a small town with precisely 365 churches, presumably one for every day of the year. (well, except for February 29th).
That many churches require a lot of carpenters to maintain, so perhaps the best town to start your search for a house surgeon.
Be mindful that they may attempt to put a steeple on your roof when they reassemble the house.

We had a chance at a steeple - there have been two very tempting ex-churches on sale whee we are headed. One would have needed those carpenters - the other had been very clumsily converted .

A fresh flurry [not snow for a change] of showings this weekend, two today. VERY tired physically and mentally. Still praying for the right timed right directed smooth-flowing move. Now complicated - Number 1 Son is thinking of finding something CHEAP and moving to the same area,
