After over 1 1/2 years of looking for a house,
we FINALLY found one!
We've been renting my sister and brother-in-laws house for the last year while they lived in Texas,
but they moved back last month.
So we moved in with my Aunt while we continued our
[what felt like a] life long search for a house.
We seriously made offer after offer,
and for one reason or another they would ALWAYS fall through.
When we moved out of my Sisters house about a month ago,
we had what felt like our 200th offer in on a short sale.
We were hoping we'd hear back soon.
we absolutely LOVED this house and didn't see a reason for not getting it...
well, lo and behold,
our realtor called us three days after moving in with my aunt and told us that the sellers had decided to just rent the house out instead of sale it...
there was another house that we'd been looking at that was just around the corner from that house.
We really loved this one as well, so during the same phone call,
I asked our realtor to write up an offer on this house.
THE NEXT DAY,
he called us back and they ACCEPTED the offer!
I couldn't even believe what I was hearing.
Was our search finally over??
Indeed it was.
We will be closing next week :)
Here's just a few pictures of our new home!

We're so excited to live here we can hardly even stand it!
