Real Estate Update!

Back in November I shared a quick tour of our home with you all and also shared the news that our first home was officially for sale.  After a few really busy months with 20+ showings, we have officially accepted an offer!  Once we accepted the offer on our current home, we became much more serious with our home search.  We found one that we loved, made an offer, found out there were multiple offers, got super nervous, and then found out they accepted our offer!  We just had the inspection done recently so soon we'll be submitting a list of requests to the current owners.  Luckily there is nothing major so I'm feeling pretty confident!  Here's a little sneak peek of our future home:

We have been casually looking at homes since early September.  In the beginning we went and saw any house that remotely interested us.  This really helped us to narrow down our search after we found neighborhoods we liked and disliked.  Back in October we saw a home with this exact floor plan and I REALLY wanted to make an offer, but we had no bites on our house yet.  I was really sad to see it go so it was almost like fate when another house with the same floor plan came on the market when we were ready to buy!  This house even has some features the other house didn't have so we're really excited.  We also love the feel of the neighborhood.  I'm crossing my fingers that there will be some playmates for Carson since our current neighborhood was severely lacking in kids younger than 10!

It will be SO hard to say goodbye and leave our first home forever.  It's hard to believe we've been here for almost 9 years.  Finding a new home that we love will definitely help, but this home holds so many memories for us!
