For the first time since the day we moved in 2 years ago, our house looks good. Like, really good. So naturally, like any normal human being, it's time to sell!!
Okay, okay, that's not the only reason it's time to sell.. but it is one of my reasons. :) Aaron may disagree... remember that I'm the project nazi around here; he's just my slaveminion sweet boyfriendfiancé (!!!!) that willingly goes along with all my crazy plans. I am one lucky lady.
When we bought our house in 2011, the market in Florida (as well as many other areas) was at an all time low. Like rock bottom. Like Lindsay Lohan circa 2011 always (minus her Parent Trap years -- I liked that movie!!).
We bought our house for 1/2 of what others paid for theirs in the community when the market was up. Granted, it was hideous, but nothing a little TLC couldn't brighten up!
Fast forward 2 years, and lots of projects later (aka now), and this house is looking pretty schnazzy. On top of that, the housing market in Tampa (not sure about other areas?!) is on the rise! Houses are going under contract in weeks rather than months, mortgage rates have risen a point in 1 month alone, and the supply of houses definitely isn't meeting the current demand.
Combine all these factors, it's time to move on.
AwwWwWwWw a kitty :)
So I am excited to say that our first home is for sale. :) It's kind of bitter-sweet to think about. This little house has been a labor of love so I'll be sad to leave it behind, but at the same time I'm really excited about moving on to something bigger and better! :)
(Yes, I have been hoarding photos of my updated living room for months. Sorry about that!)
Of course we're looking for a fixer-upper, so I am SO EXCITED for some fun renovations to come!
Now we just need to cross our fingers that the place sells! :)
I'm going to share the things we did to get this place ready for the market. I'm also going to share some of the houses we're interested in! GET EXCITED!
Also, since I'm now getting MARRIED! YEAHHHHHH!! I'll be posting some wedding DIY/planning stuff too! :) Hope you don't mind!
So (hopefully) lots of changes in the next few weeks for us! Oooh ooooohhh!!
So glad to have you guys along for the ride! ROADTRIP OH YEAH!
