After nearly 6 months of paperwork and speed bumps, we officially have the keys to our first home!
Even though the house is officially ours, the lease on the apartment isn't over until the end of October, so we're taking our time moving things over. The first thing on the agenda is to CLEAN! The family who was there before us had 3 little boys, and once all their furniture was moved out, you could see all the dirt and grime they left behind. So everything is getting a good wipe down and/or scrubbing before any furniture gets moved or paint goes on the walls.
To say we're excited is an understatement! A lot of things came together last minute so that we could close on the house last Friday. And even then, while sitting in the title office, we almost didn't close. But I'll save that story for another day...
I'll be back with posts later
when I don't have so much homework to grade! on what we were looking for in our first home, how we found this house, and what we learned throughout the home buying process. Oh, and I can't forget about sharing pictures of what it looks like inside! So stay tuned!
