We purchased our current home in November 2009. It’s a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath colonial with 1,454 square feet. Since we moved in, we got engaged, married, and had our beautiful baby girl (who is in full blown toddlerhood now!). It was a great house, but we’ve outgrown it since D came along with all of her gear!
We started thinking about putting our house on the market this past fall (2013). We talked to our realtor to get a plan together for timing putting our house on the market. We decided spring would be best and it would give us time to de-clutter and finish a few projects so we could get top dollar.
We had originally planned on putting the house on the market in February, but then life happened and we got a little behind schedule. We didn’t end up putting it on the market until April 25th. After about 15+ showings we got an offer on May 18th. We had some back and forth plus another offer, but we ended up going with the original buyers offer. We finalized everything on May 23rd and then had the inspection on May 31st. Everything went well, no big surprises. We had the house appraisal on June 17th and everything moved right along to closing. We signed our part of the closing papers (so easy by the way!) on July 14 and the buyers signed theirs on July 15. We’re still waiting on final paperwork, but all should be good to go!
Bye Bye Old House!
Now we are living in temporary housing while we wait for our new home to be built! More on that to come...
