WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!! Seriously the best feeling to have our own place that we can call home. If you didn’t know Jimmie and I moved out of our apartment in May after I lease was up and decided not to sign another lease because we had already started the house searching process. Well we had actually started looking for our home over a year ago but, the DFW market for buying a home has been crazy.
I just wanted to start of by saying 2018 was a great year filled with many accomplishments. Although all my goals that we had set for the year the biggest goal we had we accomplished and I couldn’t be more excited.
We moved in with his mom and began searching hard. We got lucky a few times but not to lucky. We actually put in offers on 2 homes previously, the first home once we made our offer and paid fees had the inspection done we found out there was major repairs needed to the foundation. Of course we opted out of the home within the 7 day period and received most of our money back. The second home we found had the same issues, it was also a little older was completely renovated, but when we did the inspection the heating system would not work it was maybe 40 degrees in the house and none of the doors were aligned and would close. Very scary! Finally while not really searching for a particular house Jimmie came across out home now. It had only been on the market for 2 days, and I wasn’t too fond of the photos that were online (it looked bad) however, Jimmie was able to view the home while I was at work. He said it looked good and I trusted him with out seeing him and told him to go for it.
I finally saw the house when we came to the home for the inspection, and I instantly fell in love with the layout of the house. We closed on our home a few days before Christmas and this is the best gift (not better than baby small on the way), we have started renovating the house to our liking the day after we closed even did a little work on Christmas and everyday in between. The home just needed a lot of painting it was a yellow color with tile and we have changed it to grey with hardwood floors. I will be doing a house to home series here and sharing with you all the process of each room.
