Jaime and I had been wanting to move for a long time now, tried to sell 2 years ago but wanted to finish a couple things around the house before selling. We were hoping to list our house last October and in September he started to get sicker, and he was diagnosed in October. So it obviously never happened. One thing he wanted me to do was sell our home and move to the neighbourhood our kids go to school in. While we love our house, its just not in a neighbourhood. We live on a dead-end street with about 12 Semis on it. There are no sidewalks, no kids to play with, no parks near by, cant walk to school. These are all things we wanted for the kids.
Two weeks ago a Bank Repo in the area we were hoping to move to came on the market and I just had to jump on it! We went to see it on the weekend, took my parents and the kids back later that night and made an offer the next day! After some back and forth, its mine! Its a big step for me, as we havent yet sold our home, but it was just such a good opportunity I couldnt pass it up!
So we are closing end of July, then first week of August we will be getting the floors done and painting done. We're hoping to be moving in by mid August. Its a big of a fixer upper, mostly cosmetic work needs done, so lots of new projects to distract me with lol For now I thought Id share a couple pics of our before home! Im going to take more pictures soon!
This is our new home, our new start!
