New Home Sweet Home

Well, we aren't officially moved in yet but here's our soon-to-be NEW home sweet home! My last post shared the details of our current living situation and the sewer issues we were experiencing...yuk! Prior to all of these issues, Kyle and I had been contemplating making a move. In fact, we already had our eye on this house but were forced to postpone our plans to move -- temporarily at least - until we could get our current house back in order. Well, that ended up taking far longer than expected since we were displaced for an entire month. After a long wait, finally everything got fixed and we were so thankful that this house was still on the market.

Since it's a buyer's market, we promised ourselves that we would look for a "deal" and not pay top dollar on a house (no matter how much we loved it!). This house had actually been on the market for over 400 days. The builder who built the house filed bankruptcy and it was bank owned. We made an offer we never dreamed they would accept but were hopeful! I guess the bank was ready to sell because we were able to strike a great deal and get the house! We were ecstatic! Kyle and I joke that "we don't belong in this neighborhood" - lol! Seriously, we snuck in by getting this deal on such a great house. We're very excited to make it our new home in just a couple of weeks! We close at the end of this month.

Oh...and we had luck on our side after all the issues we had to deal with leading up to all of this. We put our house on the market and sold it in 2 days for our full asking price! Tons of thanks to Kyle's sister, Carrie Martin, who is a fantastic realtor with Keller Williams!

Can't wait to have friends and family over to our new home very, very soon! Cheers!
