Well, on Thursday night I met up with the new tenant after work, and handed over the keys!
It was a bittersweet feeling. It felt odd walking away, while she stayed there taking measurements and checking things out. All night I had this odd feeling that I hadn't locked the door behind me. Which of course was true, since the tenant was still in the condo, and it was her door to lock, not mine!
I can't help but feel that I should get in contact with the tenant to find out how things are going, if everything is as she expected, if she's encountered any issues, etc. I almost feel like I have a guest staying in my house, and I have to ensure I'm a good host. But I do know that I have to respect her space, and just let her be.
I think I know how my mother must have felt when I moved away to University!! How do you know when to let go, and what the right amount of contact is, in order to be appreciated?
