Wow. That was fast. We did our second look... and picked house #1 from this post yesterday. Come to find out, it was in a different school district than we originally thought...its not in the crappy district, its zoned into one of the top 10 schools for the county!
After we finished looking, we went back to the realtor's office and decided on an offer. Grabbed some lunch, and headed back to Louisville.
An hour out of the city and our realtor called for a counter. Another hour later, the seller accepted the offer! So 2 hours out of Greenville, we had begun our path towards home ownership.
We are so excited! The house is move-in-ready. Its beautiful. The neighborhood is adorable. The seller told our realtor that the next door neighbors are a young couple with their first baby, and on the other side a 30 something woman with a dog. Everyone looks out for everyone else. And unlike the other house, this one has some room for us to grow. We could buy a recliner if we want, have space for a cat tower, be able to put the litter box in the utility room instead of a spare bedroom. We don't have to feel like our feet are in the shower when we are on the toilet...
We can grow our lives a little without too much space to take care of. I'm so extremely excited.
Without further ado: Pictures!
