  • Ive got a home selling question for you. Did you come back with multiple inspection objections and did the people who bought your house come back with any? Our buyers are only asking for the repair of an old electric box (value $2,300) and we countered with leaving our newer washer and dryer for ($800-ish value). Gauging how much is usually requested post inspections. Loaded question I know, but if you don't mind divulging?

    • We were fortunate enough that neither home inspection, both ours and from our buyers, didn't provoke any further negotiating on the sale and purchase.

      If you're not willing to take the $2300 hit in your selling price, leaving an $800 value item sounds like a fair compromise. These are always tough ones. Another factor to consider is how much of a deal the buyer is already getting. If you accepted a rather low offer, I'd be inclined to not give them much more haggle room. Flipside, if you accepted a high offer, I'd be more open to negotiate more on these items.

      Best of luck on this sale :)

  • Hoju,

    It has been a while since I have visited you here on your page. I apologize.

    How have you been?
    I hope you have been well.
    Been busy?

    How is your new home?
    I hope that it is now and will always be what you want most of it.

    Hoju, I hope for the very best for you and yours for this Christmas and throughout the year to come.

    Take very good care of yourself, Hoju.

    Tead.

    • Hey Tead!
      I'm doing well. The new house has been awesome. Still the organizing and some unpacking to do (which Christmas did not help, haha) but it's been great. I get home so much earlier in the day now. It feels like I'm getting my life back.

      Our Christmas was nice too. We kept it pretty low key, just saw immediate family.
      How are you doing, and how was your holidays?

  • I just started playing the Simpsons Hit and Run, have you ever played it?

  • I've bought before, but this will be my first time selling my house (and then trying to buy again). Any tips or wise words from someone who also just went through it?

    Posted by Kae

    • Of course!

      Some advice to start.
      Try to get in the spring or fall market (spring is the best time). The market will slow down in the summer (rapidly in July and August) and also in November/December. You'll likely get the quickest sale and best offer in the peak times.

      For staging the house, less stuff you have the better it looks in pictures. I rented a storage locker and just loaded it with all our crap so our house looked nice and empty. People can better visualize how they would live in a place when it's much emptier. Plus it's less you have to pack come time to move.

      If you're thinking of painting, focus on painting dark rooms with lighter colours. Makes them look bigger.

      Feel free to message as you go through the selling process if you have any more questions.

      Posted by Hoju

    • Thank you! While we have been ready we were waiting until the beginning of the year as we heard that December was a poor time. I imagine prior to spring isnt ideal...but yeah. We were considering a storage locker so thats good to confirm we are barking up the right tree.

      Really appreciate it, will reach out as we make moves.

  • Congrats on your house!

  • How did I not know you were a mod, until now? Maybe I need to get my eyes checked or something.

      Here are my kiddos in their halloween costumes.

      Posted by Hoju

    • Thank you, he's 4 months and 9 days old today. And on that same page in the Scrapbook, I posted other two videos of him. His voice is getting more audible in those videos.

      How old are your children?

      Posted by N64

    • 7 and 4. The oldest is in Grade 2 and my youngest in preschool.

    • That's wonderful Hoju! Which is the autistic one? Anyway did you find the ones I mentioned where Adam 'spoke'?

      Posted by N64

    • My son is autistic. Fortunately he is high functioning and doing very well academically in school. His struggles are more social.

      I'm just watching the vid now of Adam waking grandpa. Once they start making noise they'll never stop ;)

  • Hello Hoju,

    How has your Thanksgiving thus far been?
    Did you do any of the cooking?
    I hope that you and yours have had a very Happy Thanksgiving.

    I just relaxed, watched some movies and TV, and browsed the board.
    Earlier I went to a community Thanksgiving lunch.

    Soon I think I might get some sleep.

    Take care, Hoju.
    Tead.

    Posted by Tead

    • Our thanksgiving in Canada was last month so the last couple days has been mostly business as usual. Just a little extra shopping since Black Friday sales have been starting occur in Canada now.

      My mother in law did make a yummy Turkey last month which I happily gobbled up :)
      My wife makes a really good Turkey as well. Perhaps I'll need to bug her to make one soon.. haha.

      Posted by Hoju

    • Sounds like a good idea, I love turkey!
      Sounds like you had a fun time.

      Are you ready for Christmas?
      Going to your Moms again? Do you have a large Family?

      I will be here alone for Christmas.
      I want to see The Last Jedi so hopefully it will still be playing then, or perhaps I can just go sooner rather than later.

      I am hoping to return home this Spring for a visit then I will return here afterwards because I will be here for about a year longer.

      I hope to see you around, Hoju.
      Tead.

    • Hey Tead,

      We're really changing it up this year and we're taking the family to Disneyland for Christmas. Usually we bounce between seeing my family or my wife's family but we'll be down along with my mother-in-law and father-in-law in a hopefully sunny California.

      We're probably going to see The Last Jedi on our vacation at the theatre in downtown Disney. My son loves Star Wars so I think he'll have a blast.

      Posted by Hoju

  • Hey Hoju,

    It has indeed been a while, how have you been?
    What have you been up to?

    Playing any interesting games recently?

    I will see you around,
    Tead.

    Posted by Tead

    • Hey Tead,

      Not doing too bad.
      Mostly just doing the work and raise a family routine. Looking forward to the long weekend and hoping to get lots of gaming in.

      Been playing mostly GTA5 and Gears of War 4 lately.
