Selling a house and a home

A few month's back we decided to sell our old Victorian house in Natick, MA. It was a tough call; we bought the place as a renovation project 8 years ago and have spent a lot of time and energy bringing it into the 21st Century. A while back we pulled the deed history and found that only 3 other people had owned the place before us, and the house was built in about 1885. It still has most of the original features, and every time we pull a wall down we unearth layer upon layer of old wallpaper over the horse hair plaster. In the back yard we've dug up old patent medicine bottle from the 1890s. It's a great old house and I'll miss it.

If you know anyone that's looking to move to the western suburbs of Boston, here's the link.

Yeah, it's pretty sad when we sell the homes we live in, and eight years is a pretty long time. It's cool that the house is quite old; since 1885, people who're searching for homes might be interested in that. Asking your real estate agent about it might be useful, and hope you sell the house!
