It sounds lovely Hestia. I think I read you guys had a holiday up North. That would have been such a nice thing to do - to get away for a bit. Did the Doctors manage to get your husband's pain under control? Have been thinking about you both. Where else are you planning to advertise?

Wish we had been somewhere on holiday, but we can't go anywhere,x-mas has been either being asleep or awake and with pain,,no pain relief so far,,all x-rays done and new tests done and hopefully when we see the specialist at end of this month and they will finally be able to give him a referal to the pain clinic and fingers crossed that they have no waiting list there as well. It has been a way too long wait to get everything done even though he has had rush referals.

I am trying our luck with advertiseing here and that someone knows someone,,,.
Burnt so much money on medication and travel to the hospital and doctors and don't want to feed real estate people as well.
The only help we have got has been from you guys and it was very much appreciated! :)

Heard that trademe generates heaps of looks but no interest.
I will try to do it like this first, spread it among people that have LSB as an interest.
Hubbie has gone thru all x-rays and other diagnostic tests and biopsies and hopefully he will get an appointment this month with the pain clinic.
When giving him painkillers strong enough to minimize his pain it makes him close down and go to sleep.
He has been sleeping 20 hrs a day now for many months and he wants a life. If he reduce his pain killers he gets such a pain so it isn't bareable.
He needs to be assesed by pain specialist that can target the pain without putting him to sleep.

Goal is to get out of the lsb and rent a place closer to my work so I can see him at lunches and get more time at home with less travel.

I got all our rental homes/LSB and the LSB we've now bought from TM.

Have loads of clear photo's in and out and the write up you've done for here is very informative. I wouldn't mention hubbys illness as the reason for selling though IMHO.

I hope your hubby get some pain relief and starts to feel better soon. :)

I know, it is like when people say that they are to get divorced when selling a house, you just don't mention that.

But, how else do you explain that we took out all linos and freed the native floors up,,without sanding them and just stopped?
We had a big start up of doing the renovation and he fell dramatically sick in the middle of it.
We have lived like this now for more than a year.

That's a difficult one, but maybe you could say you want to move closer to work/family, nearer to town, or maybe that you just ran out of steam now that all the HARD work is done. Note the emphasis :D

You don't have to fib, just not necessarily tell the real reason. I think the closer to work one is pretty much the truth and one that may sit comfortably with you when you explain it to people. Buyers are bound to ask..
