Timeline to Date
This is definately happening FAST! Or so it seems at least... Over the past few years I heard people tell us " it will happen when you least expect it" in regards to selling our house. Seriously, I grew to really dislike that expression, but it is true! Here is a timeline of the past few weeks to bring us up to speed!
