We bought our current house almost exactly 7 years ago and we’ve really enjoyed our years here as our family has grown, but it’s time for something new! When we moved here, we only had 2 children…now we have 5! Our current house has ample living space but the bedrooms are getting too small for the number of beds we need to fit in them, and we’ve been dreaming about owning some more land outside of town for a few years now.
We listed our house for sale a couple of weeks ago, expecting it to be listed for a while because we live in a small rural town and the spring rush for real estate hasn’t started yet. To our surprise, we got a call for a viewing that night, the couple came the next morning, and made an offer that same night!
It was a huge blessing to have the house sell quickly because I was dreading having to keep the house show-ready all of the time and having to find places to take the kids during showings when it wasn’t warm enough to just go to the park or something. Now we had to find a house really quickly though!
There was one house we loved but it was conditionally sold already. We looked at a few others but none of them wowed us; we want this to be our final move, our forever house, so we are being a little bit picky. And then….the house we love came back on the market! We’ve put in an offer and have accepted the seller’s counter offer. Now comes the fun part of meeting all of the conditions by next Monday. Any prayers that everything goes smoothly are appreciated! Thanks!
