I've been holding out on you. I was afraid to jinx it, so I kept this news to myself until it was very clear it was happening. With limited negotiations and an easy inspection, I feel comfortable saying that we are officially under contract on this baby.
(please excuse the ladder in this photo, we were in the middle of the inspection.)
I feel so lucky to have had the easiest (knock on wood) first home buying experience I've ever heard of. There has been (almost) no hassle. We only looked at 5 houses. We were in total agreement about this house (unlike a couple others we looked at). And most of all, it is larger than we were looking for and at a lower price than our budget allowed.
Pretty much, I think God put it in front of us for a reason.
I have 10,000,000 (that's 10 MILLION) projects written down, circled in magazines, already e-mailed to Brian, etc. And the garage sale-ing will begin this Saturday. I already have a pretty specific list of items I'm looking for so it may take a little time.
Brian and I already cleaned out 2 rooms in our apartment and donated a lot of stuff to Goodwill. I'm excited to do that with every room as we start packing! Gotta make room for the new! I'm sure you'll find me garage sale-ing every weekend for a while...
I didn't feel comfortable taking pictures of the inside while someone is still living there... but check out our back deck!
This house is pretty perfect the way it is, but we want to make it ours... and as so many of the blogs I follow do, I hope to share the journey with you as I go!
I can't wait!
