I had forgotten what it was like to sell an old home to a first-time home buyer. *sigh* Yes, there’s lead paint. The house was built in 1870. Yes, there’s asbestos (although most of it has been taken out) because that’s what they used to use for insulation. All the time. Everywhere. Yes, storm windows for windows this size are expensive, and yes, things settle and don’t look perfectly straight. I’m actually glad that we filled out a disclosure statement and were absolutely honest about the house, because nobody can claim that we hid anything. I’m also glad that we had multiple offers on the house in case these buyers pull out, but what a pain that will be. I liked them when I met them, and I think they’d do nice things to the house. I also don’t want to have to make huge changes in the contract we have for the new house, because those sellers really want to get moving, too. We shall see.
