Things are moving along quickly here... my wife was finally successful in buying a beautiful, medium-sized home in a safe neighbourhood. My town routinely makes the "Top Five" list for violent crimes in Canada although the robberies and assaults are done using knives, not handguns. There are plenty of areas in town where I wouldn't feel safe.
Due to our overheated real estate market, my wife had to make an offer about 10% higher than the asking price. We think she clinched the deal by also offering the sellers an unspecified closing date since they are still looking for a house to purchase. This gives us a little extra time to prepare one of our homes for sale.
The sale of one of our homes will clear all our debt with cash to spare. I will then get a bit of a mortgage to pay my wife half the value of our second home and assume sole ownership. At this point, the division of our assets will be essentially complete.
It's the first time in years that we've worked so cooperatively together. My wife's aggressiveness is being channeled towards something positive instead of just using it to criticize me.... a nice change.
