I have to share....

I am in awe that at such an early stage of my life, I have exceeded any and all of my dreams for the future, with a wonderful husband, 3 great kids, great friends (like all of you) and now my dream home, it REALLY doesn't seem real. Sometimes I'm afraid I'll wake up and it'll all be gone. I had a very hard first 20 or so years of life, but every second was worth it.
Hey, also I don't particularly like the trim colors on the house, any ideas of what you think will look good?

We weren't even looking at buying too hard, just kind-of seeing what was out there. We have out grown our current home and were planning to build on to it, but when we saw all the personality this house had we had to call the realitor and here we are, about ready to own it! I'm going to miss our resident spirit, David, and my job, but I think I can occupy my time quite well in this house!

That is such a cool house! I hope you enjoy it for many many years to come. Congratulations a million times over!

When we got here we almost fainted! We wanted to place an offer before even stepping into the house. We said "oh my gosh, how much more can we offer." We went inside and then went directly to the realtors ofice and put an offer on it for $5000 more than the asking price.
Well the sellers didn't like the fact that we put a contigency contract on to sell our current house, so i came up with the idea to sell our house in 14 days instead of 30 days. I knew we would sell it, it was a HOT market in metro D.C.
Well, I sold the house in 2 days for $6000 more than asking price, and $20,000 more than the new house. Whooppie! That was sweet! Oh and did I mention we sold a 900sf rambler on 1/8 acre and now are in a 3000 sf house on 3 acres. Life is good.
After settlement on the new place I cried my eyes out with joy.
I really really hope you get the house! Keep us posted!

"The people who are currently living there have been there for 19 years and have it decorated REALLY nice, but when we move in, it will take YEARS to get it decorated where it will look 1/2 as nice as it does now. We'll be lucky to fit all our current furniture into one room LOL. "
Well that made me laugh! We brought our furniture from our old house and were disgraced at how bad it looked. So we went out and bought all new furniture and went into debt on our home equity loan, even though we made a profit on the old house LOL. Our old living room couch now sits in the garage, haha! Oh and the rugs we had to buy for the whole house, all wood floors, OH mY!
