So What Happens Now?

Published February 17, 2012 - 0 Comments

I’ve had a few people ask the same question…  ” What is going to happen to your grandmother’s house?  What are you going to do now?”

The short answer:  I have no idea.

I am sure that my father and his brothers will be sitting down at some point to go through the required administrative tasks.  They may have already touched on some of this.  I have no idea.  I’m thankful that I’m not involved in that process.

For my part, I’ve purchased some boxes, and will probably start packing up some of the loose things that I don’t need on a day to day basis.  If you’ve never bought proper packing boxes before, they’re a little pricey!  But they’re also very nice boxes, so I suppose you get what you pay for.

I know that whatever happens with the house, it won’t be right away… but I want to be ready.  I also know that people will probably start coming to the house more often now, and it’s better if my stuff isn’t in the way.

So where will I go?

The short answer: I have no idea.

I’ve been looking online at different options.  Renting is the more likely one, but you never know… I recently paid for another credit report with score and was surprised to see that my credit rating is now in the average range.  This means that a mortgage is not out of the realm of possibility!  I’ve looked at a few properties online, and went for a drive to check out a few of the more promising ones.  I’m nowhere near ready to sign a mortgage yet, but it feels good to start the process of moving forward with my life.

Only time will tell!
