Wow- does anyone else feel like this year is already flying by? I mean January is already almost over! If you follow me on Instagram, then you saw early on this month that this year was going to be a big year for me and my family. I didn’t give much detail at all because things were still fresh. However, I am ready to share a little bit of what we have planned for this year and tell you all how this year started for us! I am pumped to finally feel comfortable enough in this process to share!
So, first if you have ben following me then you know that my husband and I have been in the process of getting our house ready to sell for a while now. We really didn’t rush this because we haven’t had a reason too. We found several places that we wanted to buy but nothing worked out. We bid on land to build and lost, we looked at a huge fixer up that ended up being way more than we wanted to bite off, and then finally decided to wait and take out time until God brought the right place to us. This means that we took our time on finishing our home improvement projects, while still looking for the right place. We really figured we would stay where we are for at least another year or so.
We decided to check out a house that we had looked at on Zillow few times with our realtor. Little did we know that the same day we looked at it there was an open house and about 15 other families looked at it too. This was more people than we had ever seen at an open house, and we have been to a lot! So, that day we decided to put an offer in! After a few negotiations, they accepted! WHAAAATTT!!! We were so excited! Then we realized we had to get our ducks in a row: getting re-approved, getting our what seemed enormous TO-DO list completed, and getting our house on the market!
Today, as I write this post our house went on the market! This is such a relief for us. We really would love to sell our house and close on it soon after we move into our new house! As is anyone’s dream who is buying and selling! I have spent lots of time cleaning out closets, removing items we didn’t use and removing personal items from our home. The kids can’t wait to get into their new rooms, but the dog is very confused and not liking the change! We are confident that he is going to love all the space at the new place though!
Anywho! I wanted to give you all an update on what is going on and I can’t wait to share more with you all! We are to close mid next month on the new house and I will for sure be sharing some of our future plans there with you all!
I pray that you all are having a great start to your new year and that life isn’t throwing to many curve balls your way!
Until next time, XOXO!
