We have BIG NEWS!!!


We bought a NEW HOUSE!!!! We close sometime this month. We are waiting on a location survey and title work. It is a 4 bedroom, 2.75 bath, 2400 sqft bi-level on 1 acre with a heated inground pool! We are so excited! The upstairs has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen w/ eat in dining room, and living room. The lower level has the utility room, 4th bedroom (playroom) my office and the rec room. The house is move in ready. There are a few things that I will be changing out. Bathroom light fixtures, diningroom light fixture and eventually 2 ceiling fans in the rec room. We are so very excited! We were not completely sold on the pool, but it will be nice to have the kids at my house and not at other kids houses. :)

Also, believe it or not, we put our house on the market Tuesday afternoon. We had our first showing Thursday at 5:50pm and they stayed until 6:23pm. No I was not here I was stalking my house. LOL However Friday Morning my realtor called me at 9:30am to tell me that she left a message for the other realtor to get feedback. Well, 9:45am we got the call that their realtor wanted to present their offer at 7:30pm that night. We ended up with one other showing before we had their offer accept. They loved the house but the wife was not sure that she wanted to live in a subdivision. Long story short, we accepted their money offer and counteroffered on closing dates. This morning we got a call that they accepted our counteroffer. Darren and I have decided to continue to show the house until the day of closing.
