With only 1 month, 1 week, and 2 days until we depart for Vermont again, we do not have a realtor up there. We received a recommendation from the innkeeper where we stayed last time and we contacted her but haven’t received any response. Well, that isn’t entirely true. We initially contacted her to get a few places to look at in December and I was able to speak with her on the phone and she sent us some info. We did see a few properties while we were there but on our own. I’ve since tried to contact her about looking during our next trip (since that is the whole purpose of going up there again) and have not heard back. Seems like luck with realtors is not our thing (still haven’t heard back from our realtor here that is supposed to be selling our house). Who knows what is happening there… I’m thinking 6% is a lot. (*Update: While this post was being written I called our Fl realtor and got the dish. The last two showings did not result in any offers and we are just waiting now.)
So we have been looking at listings on our own and we have contacted another realtor about a few of them but have not heard back. We are looking at places that have land and a house that needs work. We have found a listing that we want already so we are contacting the realtor to look at it for sure. It is 20+ acres in a small town that isn’t far from St. Albans. The house is a small two story that needs work. The upstairs is unfinished but livable. We are okay with it needing to be finished so we can finish it the way we want it. We would need to get it during the summer in order to make it more comfortable to live in during the winter. That means someone needs to buy our house like… yesterday, today, or tomorrow, or soon at least. We’ll see what happens.
On another note, we had a long weekend. It was great but made going back to work less entertaining. We went over to IKEA to get some ideas and just spent some time walking around and looking. We ate lunch there, which even though I am supposed to be eating a mostly veggie diet, I love the meatballs. I even took a picture. Please note that while I ordered meatballs and mash-potatoes, someone ordered everything else on the menu. (Hah. I’m just kidding, darling).
All in all, it was a good weekend.
