One Step Closer to Home Ownership!


I am glad you are here because I am so excited to update you on our home offer. Things have happened quickly but very smoothly so far. We submitted our offer, and in about 24 hours we had a counter offer that we could not refuse, so...we signed on the line and we are on our way to home ownership! How exciting, not really sure it has sunk in yet. Let me give you a tiny tour of our soon to be home (assuming all goes well)...Pardon the photo quality, these shots are pulled from the listing website :)

Entry Way...that light over the stairs is SO cool!

Living Area with WOOD BURNING fireplace...Love it!

Get a load of that chandelier...

Granite counter tops

Sun room...That Phil is pining that this will be his new home office:)

I of course am already planning what I am going to do once I get my hands on that house...expect plenty of diy and home decor posts! I am so excited to have a home to share with all of you! I am already moving on my first project which is to create a little vanity area for myself. The bathroom in the new place is quite small, which is a great excuse for me to get the vanity I have always wanted. I found an awesome one on Craigslist and my hubby and I are going to look at it tonight...stay tuned to see how it all turns out!

Onto next steps now. Currently we are working with our buyer's agent to find a home inspector. We are keeping fingers crossed that the inspection goes as smoothly as the offer process did.

I invite you to share your home buying stories with me and other readers. How did your offer process go? Were any of you in a deal that went sour? Any lessons learned? For those looking to buy what information would be most helpful? What are you looking for in a house? When and where do you think you will buy? Talk to me people :) I look forward to reading your comments!

    1. We have tended to notice that when we see something we like we pounce on it. There is a dishwasher, 4 beds, 1.5 baths. We hope that we will be able to add a bathroom at some point but we are going to have to see what the plumbing situation is!

      Thanks for you kind wishes!
