We bought a place

We just got a call from the realtor in Merritt and our offer has been accepted so we leave tomorrow to do the necessary paperwork. Possession date is end of April. It will be a miracle if the place in here is sold quickly but in the meantime we have a couple interested in renting it until it sells. We are offering them very cheap rent (just enough to cover our taxes and utilities so we don't have any costs) in return they are to keep up the place. It is a bit more than we wanted to spend but when we visited Merritt a week ago we realized we would have to spend more.

Unfortunately the internet will have to go for a while as we have to see if we can afford it although we are sure we will get it back on by Fall and in the meantime when we move we will be checking  mail once or twice a week at a local coffee shop so keep in touch. We will also not be putting in a landline at least for a while so we can be found with the cell and then we will investigate if we should get the number changed to a Merrit number.

Everything is coming together really fast as we only got home from Mexico last Saturday and now we have a bank loan approved (just a small one), the Granisle place listed and a new place in the process of being bought. It has a living room, family room and 3 bedrooms so plenty of room. We will want to paint it and do a bit of remodelling but on the whole nothing much.

Congrats on the big changes!! Wow, things are moving along. We go through Merritt about once a year on our way to the Okanagan so we'll have to look you up! (We go by way of Ashcroft/Logan Lake when we go.)

Your new place looks well kept.
