we were going to move and then we weren’t going to move then we were going to move
we decided. we are going to move.
and we found nothing we wanted to move for. i couldn’t believe that in a “buyers market” there was nothing worth selling our house for.
so we were like now what?
the idea of selling our house was shelved for a little bit until one sunday august afternoon i found a little house on trulia…in pentwater.
on a whim we took a drive to check it out and loved it!
after calling and getting an official showing we knew it was the project fit for us.
the electrical needed some serious work, the drywall was a mess, there is this odd tile throughout the entire place.
to sum it up, it needs a lot of work.
we decided we would try to buy it under two conditions
1.) it was structurally sound
2.) we got it for the right price
after those two crucial pieces were in place we were good to go.
our offer was accepted the last week in august.
after inspections, inspections, bankers, realtors, city workers, more bankers
WE FINALLY CLOSE TODAY!
it has been so hard not to tell anyone because one day we thought we were going to get then we would have an inspection and think we weren’t going to get it…this went on for literally months!
so for the time being we are going to stay put and have our little shanty getaway in pentwater.
i can’t wait to show you more pictures!
in the meantime here is a very corny youtube video of the property1
