They accepted our offer! Chris and I were both somewhat shocked as we thought there would be a bit of back and forth… but God provided bigger and better than we expected! We were able to get our little house for almost $25,000 less than asking price!
Without further ado, meet our newest abode…
Isn’t it charming? I really am so excited, it’s a bit smaller than our house now, but I really think it’s going to be perfect for us. And with the $ we didn’t have to spend on the house, I’m going to tackle a mini re-do on the outdated kitchen.
It was owned by an older couple who have lived there a while, and as a result, the entire place is covered in floral wallpaper. And border. Gonna be a little while before we’ve got it all fixed up the way we want it… so expect more before and after pictures, just like I shared when we painted and replaced the carpet with hardwood back in September 🙂
But our new house is a solid little thing, well built and on almost 2 acres of land, right across the street from a pond! And the current owners have just loved the heck out of this house. It just feels good inside… like you expect to smell bacon and pancakes cooking on the stove and see smoke billowing out of the chimney.
We hope to close on it by the 15th of July. In the meantime, between our closing on this house on the 27th and our new house on the 15th, we’ll be homeless… an adventure will be had to be sure.
2 adults. 8 kids. 2 dogs. And a whole lotta stuff. Should be interesting.
