We are going to take a look at a house today. We weren't necessarily wanting to deal with this right now.....even though we have been talking about moving for a while. We were planning on preparing our house more to sell, and thought for sure it wouldn't be 'til spring until we'd be looking seriously. So-I guess you can never completely plan these things out. We have targeted a neighborhood, that we have been carefully watching. It is right next our home soccer fields, has all the same schools we are currently in, and is filled with many of our family's friends. Anyway, the house we are going to look at has everything on our list (except a front porch) and more. It was a model home--so it was all decked out from the start--and then the owners even put an extension onto the Master to include an additional sitting room and walk-in closets. It is completely dog ready (fenced in yard).....and has a bedroom for everyone, plus an office for Matt, a guestroom for visitors, and a finshed basement to entertain the kids and their friends. The best part is, while it was out of our price range when it first came on the market...it is now priced well under the appraisal value for a quick sale. The owners are very motivated, and the realtor says the price is negotiable. Of course, that also means we might be moving a whole lot sooner than we expected! Not sure how I am going to fit a move in to my already way too busy life!
We have been praying a lot about this whole thing......and I know that if it is meant to be, God will work out the details. And if it is not---than He will close doors.
