Well, it’s gone. The rental property is officially in the hands of it’s new owners as of June 5th.

Subsequently, we now have $50,000-ish burning a hole in our bank account. Don’t worry, it’ won’t be burning a hole for long.

We have our spreadsheet out and have begun making our way through the lenders we owe money to and calling to do full-loan payoffs.

Furniture Loan – Gone

All Credit Cards –  Gone

Also, we paid our mortgage payment until August. So we have a couple months of breathing to get settled into this new financial pattern.
