In 2007, I sold my condo and we bought the house of our dreams. We wanted something that we would be able to start a family in, and the house has served us very well in that regard.
The condo I sold was my first real place, and I left it with great sadness. Still, I knew that while it was a good bachelor pad, it wasn’t any place to start a family.
The condo was built around 1990. I think the ‘original’ price was in the neighborhood of $70,000 or thereabouts. It sold in the early 1990’s for around $80-85k if memory serves.
I bought it in the spring of 1999. It was listed for $104,900 and I put a full price offer. There was a second offer, equal to mine, but the seller chose my offer because I was not moving out of another house, therefore I didn’t have another sale in the way of closing.
