Many observations and predictions from older and wiser comrades on this journey have proven true. Here is one more: When you’ve fixed up your house just the way you want it (so you can sell it to someone else…), you’ll feel like buying it all over again!

- God to be preparing just the right buyer – and to connect them to us!
- A quick turnaround in the transaction
