Azalea, or…how I’m trying to focus on the positive while my house isn’t selling.

My house is up for sale.  It’s not selling.  It’s got the right price.  It’s in the right neighborhood.  I live less than a kilometer from Chilliwack River and maybe 10k from Cultus Lake.  It’s across from a park, a Twin Rink complex, down the street from a middle school and a ten minute drive to the highway for an easy commute.

Whatever.  It’s still not selling.  I’m getting the feeling that I’m moving to Indonesia and continuing to own a home in Chilliwack, BC, Canada.  That’s not a terrible thing, but I’d rather not have to own it if I don’t have to.  I want to be in one place, committed to where I am. If I still own – which means renting it out – this house, my mind will always be a little bit here.  And I don’t want that.

If you know someone who wants to buy a house in Chilliwack, let me know.

To try to take my mind off all that, I snapped a couple of photos of the azaleas growing in my front yard.  They’re pretty.  They’re not taking my mind off all this yet, but I’ll keep thinking of them instead of BC real estate.

  1. Looks like the real estate market is slow worldwide.

  2. I can understand the feeling. Hope you can sell it soon! I have a friend in Chilliwack but she is renting. I don`t know if she is interested in buying but I can ask.
    My parents died last year and I have to sell their house. I need to do it because I need that closure. But it`s the worst of times here for that sort of operation. And everybody thinks I should wait a year. I understand it`s the wise thing to do but deep inside I need to sell it. I need to let go …
    Good luck!!!
