Our homestead is for sale!

Monday, July 15, 2019

Today's the Big Day!!

Today we officially listed our house for sale! (Kinda scary, really.)


We submitted a For Sale By Owner listing to Zillow (it needs to be verified before it will go live). We also have a listing on Survival Realty (here) and SurvivalBlog was kind enough to mention it as well.


We've spent the last few months remodeling and renovating the house and property, and we're still in that process (the bathroom is the current project, for example). Most of this beautification has fallen on Don, and his skills and creativity have resulted in some absolutely beautiful interiors.


I invite everyone to come see our dedicated webpage which has a full description and dozens of photos. Please send this link to anyone you know who might be interested in relocating to North Idaho. We would appreciate it if everyone would post it on their own blog, FaceBook page, or tweet it out to friends.

Onward!

  1. That is a wonderful presentation of your home. If this was 10 years ago I would be interested but I am way too old to consider it now. Best of luck with your listing, and I think your price is in line for what you have.

  3. I'd think it will be difficult to say goodbye with all hard work and time you've invested. What are your future plans? Smaller property but still able to homestead for just the two of you?

    1. Bingo -- smaller property, smaller home, but still a homestead.

  5. I would recommend that you have your favorite local title insurance company provide you with a title commitment with the insured being "To be advised" so that you and any prospective buyer can be fully aware of any conditions affecting the title that they may be concerned with. such as easements, restrictions, mineral reservations or other impediments and reservations that affect the land. this could save you a lot of hassles and delays later as well as make your presentation much more professional and open.. ---ken

  8. I love the property and presentation quite a bit! I really liked the reference to the neighbors too! That is so important!

  9. I love your comments on the realtor no-contact and getting 1%. If they want more you could offer to up your sales price to cover the commission.

  10. I hope that you will luck out and it will be a repeat of when Helen and Scott Nearing put their farm up for sale.

  11. I hope that you will luck out and you will have the same results as Helen and Scott Nearing had when they put their farm up for sale.

  12. As commented before. If I were 20 years younger and had enough equity + cash I would be interested. You see, 20 years ago we had no grandkids and moving to Idaho would be wonderful. I retired only 13 years ago so maybe I am not thinking straight as giving up on 7 years to retirement probably would have nixed the deal.

    You and Don have a lovely home and property for a small family to move into. Having "chores" to do and homeschooling your kids gives you many precious memories. May it (your homestead) be passed on to a similar family in need. Blessings in selling and finding something smaller!
