Yes, it’s true, I finally found and bought a house!
It only took; *3-4 months and 3 or 4 visits to the state where I am moving to and
tons of miles driven back and forth(4.5 hours away from my current home)
* tons of hours looking at homes online and emails back and forth with
* touring about 20-30 homes in person(after weeding out the ones
not worth seeing)
* 3 offers on 2 houses(long story) and losing the first 2
*Tons of phone calls and encouragement from my sister
*LOTS of patience!!!!
But lets look at the bigger picture…
My cousin came up with the idea to move around summer of 2016 and I;
*sold or gave away most of my belongings and all of my furniture
*listed and sold my house in 3 months
*found a house to buy ALL BY MYSELF, in my budget, which was not easy!!!!
I am very proud of myself for accomplishing all of this in a relatively short amount of time. Less then a year!! But once I put my mind to something, I usually make it happen.
I have to give props to my agent Margaret, who sold my house, and the agent Mary, who helped me find a house. Two great ladies who I am lucky enough to also call my friends.
So now, it’s time to get organized! Closing is in May for both houses. I am mostly packed, except for daily living essentials. I also printed out a “what to do and when you are moving list” so I can stay organized.
I sold all my furniture, except for my bed, which I will list soon. It’s the same bed I shared with my ex so IT HAS TO GO! It wont fit in my new house anyway.
I cant wait to get there and make it my own! I am thinking about a coastal theme since I will be so close to the water!
The new house is a 6 minute walk to the beach!!
Excited to start this new chapter of my life!!
