As you may have figured out in my prior post, we got a house! The house I actually posted about fell through because it needed so much work **Shutters at the thought** BUT, with every negative thing to happen in this home buying journey I constantly keep reassuring myself that there is a reason for everything and BEHOLD! A house came up that was an estate and the showings were going to start April 1st!
We went and looked at the house and besides some (serious) updating and cat pee smell, the house was on 30 acres! This house is right where we want to be, quiet country roads, neighbors far away, of whom are cows haha! Kidding, kidding, we do have neighbors, that own cows, but they are far enough away that we can get our privacy.
This house is a cape cod which I swore up and down I wanted nothing to do with! However, seeing the house and the land it is so worth it and I know we can make this house into something we love. The key reasons I am going to choose to love it for all it is are: (1) there is a bedroom on the first floor with NORMAL ceilings, (2) there is a dormer on the back side of the roof which means the back two bedrooms are also not too bad with the curved ceilings and (3) 30 ACRES!!
We are going to make this house into our home for a long time and we cannot be happier. There was a reason I had so much heartbreak over all the other houses we went to look at, because god had this one up his sleeve for us. I can finally confirm it was worth the wait but honestly the worst part of the wait so far is easily going to be these next (less than now) 60 days until we close. We have a super busy schedule and so many things we need to do and check off our list but for right now we are just focused on the end goal, to own a home!
I will keep you all updated as much as possible in these coming weeks but ya know, school. It ruins lives and plans! I also graduate in 4 weeks and it seems like it cannot come soon enough! Any other seniors out there having a severe case of senioritis?!
Any helpful tips on first time home owning and things to expect? We got our inspection so we have a general idea but NO idea what to expect when we first get in there, so exciting and overwhelming all at once i’m sure! Let me know if you have any tips!
Until next time,
