Say Yes to the House

IMG_4144So yeah um… we bought a house. It’s partially responsible for why I haven’t blogging much lately. We purchased and then immediately began doing some small (and large renovations) leaving me living out of those sad little plastic tubs from Target and repeating outfits and hoping no one notices.

Anyway, why a house and why now? The hubby and I stopped into an open house one Sunday last November. We love homes and design and just wanted to check it out. We’d been tossing around the idea of buying a house and because of that little whim, decided that we were all in.

We saw a ton of homes and by we, I do mean, Marcus. Marcus has far more time and patience than I do, so he saw about four homes for every one that I saw. If he saw a house that I would like, I would go and we’d see it together.The only problem with that is that it is definitely a seller’s market in our little town. If a home goes on the market, within twelve hours there’s a multiple offer bidding situation.

So the house that we eventually said yes to went on the market at 8pm on a Saturday. We saw said house at 8 am the next day, a Sunday, and we put in an offer by 11 am. By 9pm the seller said yes and off to the races we went. All of this made possible by a great credit score and world’s most amazing realtor. He was like a dad, friend and a pitbull  all rolled into one. If you’re ever in the triangle area, Joe of Keller Williams Realty’s got your back.

So yeah, we have a house and after doing work in it, we are only a fraction as thrilled as we were the day it closed. But you can definitely expect to see a ton of diy post from renovations, to projects, right down to packing.

Thanks for sharing in our joy.
