Big News!

I’ve been absent lately because we’ve been a bit overwhelmed! We found a house!

It’s been quite an adventure. We’ve been house hunting for a bit but the official “season” hasn’t really started yet. So we weren’t expecting to find anything yet. We went to see a house and both immediately fell in love with it. It was quite unexpected after seeing a dozen houses and feeling nothing when we toured them. But this one? It felt like “the one.”

We went home after seeing it, talked about, and then put in an offer and signed the digital paperwork at 9:30pm that night (a Sunday) and barely slept that night. Monday at 11am we got the call from our agent that the seller accepted our offer.

What?!?! We didn’t expect that either! There was another offer on the house and we weren’t expecting to get the first house we put an offer on. We were fully prepared to be disappointed and to keep looking. (Which would have been disappointing for sure, but at the same time not terrible because OUR house wasn’t done yet!!!)

Then the panic sets in. OMG we are buying a house.

Then, OMG we need to sell our house.

So that’s where we’ve been. Packing, painting, prepping our house to get it on the market, going through the inspection process on the new house.
We’ve gone through the inspection/negotiation process and came to an agreement. The whole thing has been super stressful. It feels like there’s no time, it’s overwhelming and stressful and there’s so much to coordinate and research and plan and…….

  1. I wondered where you were, figured pregnant or house hunting? Congratulations and don’t sweat the small stuff.

  2. Yes, one of life’s top five stressors. I became a first time homeowner a few years ago, and said I would never go through that again! And that was with having my sister as my realtor. She attended every single inspection, repair, etc. for me so that I didn’t have to miss as much time from work. Anyway, congrats, and can’t wait to see pics of the new house.
