Our final paperwork has been submitted, and if all goes well we will have keys in hand to our very first home mid October. Curtis (my dreamy husband) and I had quite a go trying to find a new home. We submitted 12 offers, and finally our 13th offer was accepted.
My advice for anyone new to the home buying field: Find an amazing realtor. We worked with our first realtor for 4 months. He was super nice, but ultimately we knew he wasn’t the right fit. We broke up, which was actually really hard. We loved his personality and felt guilt for the hours of time we had worked together. After our “separation” we decided to hold off on the house hunt until after our wedding. Of course, as life would have it those plans changed. Out of nowhere a new realtor fell into our laps. She was young, driven, and had a baller track record. We signed with her and in 2 weeks we had our offer accepted…. lucky number 13!
Our new home to be is 2500 sqft of old lady chic decor with sprawling shag carpet (no joke, it looks like someone stuck the muppets in a blender), terrible old wallpaper, and no 70’s house would be complete without muddy brown wood paneling in every room…EVERY ROOM. As soon as we get the keys I will be posting a full walk-through so everyone can see the hot mess we are about to call home. Wish us luck, and welcome to our ugly house.
