Our real move: house Rotterdam sold!.
Yes! We sold my house in Rotterdam!!
After the tenants left beginning of July 2016, we talked with Ooms Makelaars and decided to put my house for sale. Beautiful pictures were made by Houseview and an add on Funda which was shared a lot on Facebook (thanks to my Facebook friends).
It all went so fast! Far away from Rotterdam, Ooms was a great help with updating us on Ibiza about the people interested for a viewing. We had 9 viewers and at one moment there were two people ready to make an offer. Finally my neighbor bought the house. She wanted to go to the notary half October.
So suddenly I had to start packing the last private stuff. This was our real big move! And because we had rented out the house with furniture the last year, we also had to decide what we wanted to move to Ibiza. My brother in law PJ and my sister Claudia helped me with the big furniture and I stayed 1 week with our friends Jan and Ron, daily throwing things away or packing them in boxes.
On Ibiza we started viewing houses. We decided we wanted to live near Ibiza-city. For the apartment at Via Punica we found somebody who wanted to rent it for one year and the house at Las Salinas is a great house for holiday, but wasn’t the house for us to live in the whole year round. The house we were looking for needed a big terrace or balcony for the dogs, or better a garden, three bedrooms and a place to stock my cushions.
And you know what happened? Before I had to go to the notary in Rotterdam we already found our dream house! But more about that in a next blog item.
Sure I will miss the house in Rotterdam! I bought it with Harry in 2004. We lived there together until 2011. So many memories. But after we left for Ibiza, it did not feel anymore like it was my house. The soul was gone.
