House has sold.....hurray!!!

hey all
i know some of you were a little against us selling our home but we got an offer of the asking price yesterday and are v pleased!
they are 1st time buyers so chain free so fingers crossed will be done and duste quickly and by our calculation we can pay off our debt and still have about £2200 left over after fees etc to open a savings account or put towards a new home.
we are so happy with the way this has all worked out and i wanna thank u guys for your interest and support :beer: cheers!

    Hi There

    Just wanted to say "well done". It must have been a difficult desision to make! We were in a similar situation about 8 years ago so I know how you feel.

    We got ourselves in abit of a pickle with debt, so we sold up, paid our dues then had about £5000 in the bank. I still have that savings account open and although there is only a few quid in there-it reminds me that we did the right thing! The only debt we have now is on an 0% credit card and will be paid up by then end of the year. We have no loans or storecards.

    Good luck with wherever you are going! Try not to start spending again as the money left from selling the house will not go very far. Remember, if you get into debt again-it will be a different kettle of fish as you will have nothing to sell.

    To repeat what others have said, requires education, to challenge it,
    requires brains!
