It's official -- I'm buying [livejournal.com profile] lady_cassia and LordEdward's house!

The paperwork is signed. [livejournal.com profile] getoffended and I can move in March 1st (but of course we'll hold off a few days because it's Intercon weekend). Boxes will be needed. Movers will be hired.

For the forseeable future I will rent out my condo, dabbling in the dark arts of landlording so as not to lose a ridiculous amount of money in shrunken equity. [livejournal.com profile] drdt has been an invaluable resource for learning the legal ins and outs of property rental, as has my excellent lawyer, my mortgage broker, and my constant companion Teh Intarwebs.

This was always part of the plan for the condo, even as I was buying it back in 2003, which is why I've taken pains to ensure the expenses of owning the place were reasonably close to the going rental price for comparable condos around town - though I must admit I'm not fond of having little other choice on the matter of what to do with the place. It's not that I can't sell; it's just that I would barely regain my initial downpayment at this point, if I could even sell at all in this market.

So. Yeah. Life...

It's fair to say that [livejournal.com profile] getoffended was never part of any long-strategized plan for the future. But sometimes the best things in life just fall into place on their own. When everything else is in order, there's space and time and energy enough to allow in the unexpected surprises.
