We have been very busy over here. We put our house on the market this spring and buckled in for a wild ride of house showings and house hunting. When our house sold we still didn't have a contract on a new one so the pressure was on.
Not our ideal situation and stress was high for a while. Mr. 65th even had a crazy father of the bride moment and wanted to buy our house back when we couldn't find a new one to buy! But we had to remember why we wanted to sell in the first place, better schools and opportunities for our daughter.
After signing a contract on a much larger house, it didn't feel right and wasn't in the neighborhood we really wanted so we got out of it. We would be buying for location this time around and that is what we did.
As of last Thursday we are the new owners of a cozy 1942 fixer upper in a wonderful neighborhood. Great schools, walk to train and a trendy downtown complete with a vintage movie theater.
The new owners of our house are letting us stay until next week so we have been able to get some work done at the new house before moving in. I will be back soon with pictures!
