Midlife Crisis Queen Selling Her Home Faces New Adventure

Midlife Crisis Queen is selling her home in Fort Collins, Colorado.  Author Laura Lee Carter blogs at Midlife Crisis Queen and has written about the major life change of selling your home, moving and retirement entitled Do I have the courage to live my dream?

Laura Lee Carter’s happy apple green home for sale must be the cutest on the block.  The exterior curb appeal makes me thirsty for more, so we are taking a bit of a home tour inside today.

I happened upon her other article about selling her move-in ready home and moving out of the city entitled The Big Move: Grasping versus Letting Go “for a cleaner, quieter, calmer existence.”  Whoosh, let that wash over you for a moment.  Doesn’t that sound like the most wonderful plan?

Laura’s heart is very attached to this house and for good reason.  She states since she grew up moving a lot, her Fort Collins, Colorado house is the first place that felt like home to her.

Midlife Crisis Queen Selling Her Home Faces New AdventureThis is typically called buyers or sellers remorse.  For Laura, I think it goes a little deeper and that is one thing I like about her home story. But, Laura and her husband are planning to build their dream home with mountain views in three directions.  Good-bye metro living, hello peace and tranquility.

I can see this happy green house selling pretty quick. Listing detail updates include newer windows, carpeting, vinyl, paint, roof…. Kitchen Fort Collins, CO for saleand new range and refrigerator. I love the angled sink and windows. A popular theme in kitchens lately is open shelving.  There is a perfect spot to add open shelving above the dishwasher for new home owners.

The Home Story:

Laura, the Midlife Crisis Queen shared with me that she and her husband fell in love with rural southern Colorado.  They were able to buy three acres there this year.  Laura says now comes the hard part, building their dream solar home down south almost off the grid.

This sounds like a retirement dream come true to me.

They will have views of mountains in three directions.  Laura put it perfectly comparing these views to looking at the house across the street.  The couples new adventures seem destined for happiness.

  1. I am so happy to hear Laura’s house has a contract that quickly. It is good to know. Of course it is a very nice house with lots of curb appeal and a very nice large and tidy interior.

    I am an accidental landlord with a primary home I wanted to sell and the home I bought and wanted to live in. The covenant for my HOA did not allow a home to be rented out (unless to a direct blood relative). So we rented out the home I wanted to live in (with a beautiful kitchen that cost me many thousands of dollars). That was six years ago, I will be trying to market this house again next year so you can imagine how encouraged I felt when I read Laura’s comment that she got a contract in less than a week. Congratulations Laura!!

    Thank you for sharing Sue! Have a great week…. Candy
