I just realized I haven’t kept you updated on the house hunt! The dream house I previously mentioned is a no-go. But a few days later, Les was looking online and found another house that looked too good to be true. We called our real estate agent, Gayle (long-time friend AND an oh-amanda-comment-er!) and said, “Can we see it first thing in the morning?” We got there at 9am and there was another couple staking out the house, too!
Long story short, this house is BEAUTIFUL and we made an offer on it that afternoon. If you know my husband you know that is SO UNLIKE him. He is a researcher to the nth degree. But we were kinda getting to the point where we just had to pick something, you know?
So, we picked–and they accepted! This house would normally be waaay out of our league. But it’s a foreclosure and is at such an amazing price. Gayle said if we only stay in it a year and sell it, even in this economy, we could make $200,000 easy.
I think it’s a complete miracle. I’m slightly nervous because the house is so big, we’ll be rolling around in it, there will be empty rooms due to our lack of furniture and if any of the neighbors come over, I’m sure they’ll think we’re squatters. But at least there will be no marble trashcan holder. Or pink carpet.
Hopefully we’ll be closing at the end of the month and then I’ll be gushing about the new house every day, I’m sure! I wrote a little more about the move over at Family Bliss. Click over and check it out!
