Hip! Hip! Hooray!


Our house is now sold. The closing was yesterday. I didn't mention it because I didn't want to somehow jinx it.


You are a great house and we all had some good times together. But you are someone else's worry now.


Woo hoo!

Congratulations!

Just look at that blue sky, nice landscaping, and manicured lawn...

God bless America!

We sold our house shortly before I moved here, but the closing wasn't until a few weeks after my arrival in Switzerland. It was the easiest closing we ever did; the lawyer handled the closing, my sister picked up the check from the lawyer's office, and then she deposited it in our checking account for us.

It was a pretty easy closing. Only thing we had to do on the house was arrange to have the carpets cleaned.

The most complicated part was signing the document and having it notarized. Which wasn't terrible complicated.

But we were shocked that in Switzerland, notaries charge per signature. Do you have any idea how many signatures are in a house sale document?

Fortunately, our landlady went with to help at the notary office. She talked them into bulking it together and only charging us for two signatures (GLH's and mine). Otherwise I shudder to think of what it would have come to!
