Off Market…

Out of 7 houses I have owned since 1988… this is the first time I didn’t get one sold….

You take risks, or sit and speculate of what IF’s… Speculating is Trumps thing… not mine…

So….. here we sit on Hawaii… the one place so many want to move too… and we want to move away from….

Our original plan after our first year here… do 5 years… leave the spring of 2021…. that is looking more like a reality and achievable goal…. but….

We know if the VA does not start my implants…. we are shipping our stuff home, next spring and following after the house sells…

We furnish the house and all you need… groceries… means leaving stuff behind, but when I figure the cost of staying…it’s a push financially…. easier to start over on the mainland… than here…

Here, it will cost someone about $15,000 to set up house… this way… all you need is your food and satelite reciever…. for DISH…

Could we have done that to begin with… yep, but… again that pain in the ass word… crime was an issue, because of last years eruption… and leaving the place full of stuff… it wouldn’t have been here for long… just that simple…

This way… our stuff, that we keep, kids will put it in storage for us… we make sure the realtor can do a lock box… and every showing, we throw our suitcase full of meds and jewels in the car and leave for a couple hours… we are out of the way, and the realtor can sell the house…..

That way, all we got to do, deal with air lines, dogs and shipping our vehicles… much easier move and less clutter to cloud the buyers imagination… it is a little house…

If implants are happening… it will be spring of 2021, we pack up and leave and the house is empty… by that time the recession will be hitting, and me replacing everything on our income… to spendy….

Always options in life…. you just got to make the choices when the time is right….

Got out and did my first walk since surgery… could see the mile down the road to the ocean… not super clear, but not clouded either… looks like glass’s are still in my picture… oh well…

The new build down the street is up for sale, not a good sign… I can’t compete with a bigger home, brand new and not far from me… got a feeling the recession has already hit us… just by the price of everthing they ship to the island… buying local is cheaper, but less options… here we go again…

Succes is not measured by what you accomplish… but how you face the failures along the way and learn from them… we learned from this failure….
