Zillow good news

November 15th, 2009 at 04:41 pm

Greetings from the vacation house! Everyone is still in bed this morning so I am enjoying Sunday morning coffee and perusing the SA blogs. Our weekend has been wonderful. There is snow everywhere, the house is beautiful and we are all enjoying each other! Yesterday we went to some nearby outlet stores and our fav little bbq joint (yum) today we will stay 'home' and our friends are making prime rib for dinner. (double yum)

I was very pleased this morning when I plugged in my address on Zillow and learned that my new house has gone up $34,000 in value since I bought it in July. Smile Our other house has gone up a little, but is still well below its high point (which seemed ridiculously high to me at $330k)...However, at just under $300k it is still valued $160k more than we originally paid for it 17 years ago.

Additionally, my 401k has almost doubled this I am pretty pleased with our financial performance this year so far!

My only purchase yesterday was a Christmas present for my grandson-to-be, who is due right after Christmas. Itty bitty Nike tennis shoes...How stinkin cute are baby shoes? Normally $24 but on sale for $14. A splurge for something he wont wear for long and doesnt even need...but too darned cute to pass up..

My moms surgery went VERY WELL last week. The doctor was able to repair the fistula again. So no plastic tubes or chest tube...Thank goodness!

AND..I am now up to 12 lbs lost!!! yay

Well, the hub is up time to visit with him.

Life is very, very good!

    Great news - but far as the house is concerned we are talking about Zestimates. YMMV.
