Fingers crossed! Edit: Happy update!


Recommended Posts

And not that it was what we were looking for, but it’s the exact same floor plan as my beloved deceased grandparents’ house(I spent many happy childhood days with them) and the property is very similar .  Walking in just felt like home, something I’ve never really felt in the house we’ve lived in for eleven years.

Maybe you should tell them that!  Doesn't that work sometimes???

 

Sending all the good luck your way.

I love this. I hope you get it.

It’s been a pretty hard six years in our little family.  I truthfully haven’t even posted half of it.  We bought our house in 2010 for dirt cheap and put a lot of work into it.  It’s almost completely remodeled, but we turned out to dislike the location and the layout.

But every time we had 20% saved for a new house something else would happen that wiped our savings. The last two years we’ve been able to make good headway, just in time for the housing market here to turn crazy and bidding wars on houses.

We should know Monday but our realtor says we’ve given the best offer they’ve got.

I checked for an update before replying because I didn't want to send good vibes if you already said you didn't get it. This is great news!!! Having just bought a new house within the past year I know how hard it can be to find what you want, even when you don't have special requirements. So happy for you all that you found a good one! ❤️

Congratulations !! This quote of yours stood out for me for the bolded. I love that the house you have brings such wonderful memories and also how it felt like home.

DH and I looked for so many houses and said no because it did not feel like "home". We probably gave up better floor plans for it. But when we found our house, we both looked at each other and smiled. It was an instant recognition that we were home. I cannot describe it as our house was barely built then. But though we chose the floor plan we both liked, just standing on the site of our house after seeing similar plans and not liking it for some reason while liking this spot seemed a bit odd, but both of us were deep down sure.

May your house gives you years of happiness and be a soft landing spot especially after the year you had.

That's amazing! Congrats! I pray your fam makes many memories in that and that your kiddos get the same feeling of "home" quickly that you had walking in. 🙂
