Last month, we went back to the same bank and re-applied for another mortgage loan. My business had grown and we had a signed years lease on our property. My stomach was in knots waiting for the yes or no, but we finally got official word we'd been approved and could start looking at houses. Phew. The next day, Rusty and I drove by and peeked in windows of 15 houses. We got it narrowed down to a solid 5, and then made appointments to see them the next day.
|Arlo gravitates towards toilets. Sigh.|
We didn't expect to find "the house" from these five, but we did. I've always had trouble getting emotionally attached to houses and that is exactly what happened this time, too. ;) Oh well! We made an offer on one and they accepted. The owners are still living there for the time being, so we have plenty of time to pack and purge. Starting next month, there will be an insane amount of before/afters coming. I. Am. So. Excited.
