We Bought a House!

One of the many homes we looked at that we marked as "maybe" went down a pretty big chunk in price...$7500 to be exact. So, we felt like it was now a good deal/worth it to make an offer. We made an offer on Monday - yesterday - and accepted their counter-offer today. So, we'll schedule a home inspection for late this week and assuming all goes well, we'll be the proud owners of a new home! And as a bonus, they are in a hurry to move to wherever they are going, so we may be able to close in less than 30 days!

...the next problem to deal with is to sell our house. We had one couple come look last night and Seth talked to their agent about what they thought. They really liked it, except for the fact that there's no basement, so the husband is looking into how much it would cost to build a storm shelter. We don't expect that they'll make us an offer, but it was nice to hear that the only thing they disliked is something out of our control. And the agent said our home is charming a couple times during their short conversation, so maybe she'll keep us in her mind and bring more clients out!

I know God will take care of it all, so I'm not too stressed about it.

...and we "get" to buy new furniture! For some odd reason, when going from a one story, no basement house to a 2 story with a basement house, you seem to run out of furniture quickly! :)


  1. Congrats on the purchase of your new home. We will keep the sell of your current home in our prayers.

  2. Congrats! Praying that all falls in place
