Our snow-bird plan is developing just fine...
During the last few days we've spent several, rather intense hours with attorneys and the notary and the sellers... and now we're the proud owners of a very nice condo/apartment! (Condo and apt seem to be interchangable terms here...)
The place is near the SuperMaxi and other shopping, near a river, with great light and views, and just big enough for us... 2 bedroom, and office... and a porch!
The sellers plan to return to the US in about 30 days... so we should be able to move in no later than June 1.
We have some shopping to do! Thanks to Bob/Rox, Shelly/Brian and Holly/Brian.....we have a pretty good checklist of items, shops and price ranges for furniture and other household stuff we'll need. We've checked out a couple stores already, with more to do.
We also want to check out some locally made, custom furniture options.
I checked the camera and, alas! No good pics of the new place to share. We'll have to take new ones to share later.
