Big News!

Ok, so selling the house went amazingly well. After cleaning, organizing and staging my butt off, the house went on the market Tuesday, June 29th. On Friday the 2nd of July, we got not 1, but 2 showings! I was so excited just to know that the house was getting some marketing and buyers actually wanted to come see it. The next morning I was tidying up and Brian called and asked if I had checked my email. Turns out, we had gotten an offer the night before. Even better, they offered ASKING PRICE! I could not believe it. We priced it at exactly what it appraises for so there was no way we could have gotten a better offer. Obviously, we accepted. The scary part was that the closing date would be August 2nd. That gave us less than a month to find and close on our new house. To make things even more complicated, our realtor had gone on vacation. We hit the internet and came up with some neighborhoods we wanted to check out. After driving out to see some of them, we fell in love with a great area that has beautiful views and rolling hills. We found the perfect place and were able to put in an offer even though our realtor was out of town. The builder came back with a very fair counter offer and we accepted! I am in love with the house. It is a new construction with beautiful site finished hardwood floors, granite counter tops, an amazing deck with a view of Pinnacle Mountain, etc... It has some really great rustic touches too like exposed beams in the vaulted ceiling. It is really the perfect house for us in the perfect neighborhood. We couldn't be more excited. Here's a pic of the house. The inside is way better. I would post some pics but the ones from the MLS listing really don't do it justice. I'll have to do an update blog once we get settled.
