Who has two thumbs and two houses?? ....you guessed it! We closed on the new house today. The seller will lease back the house for another 11 days so we just walked out of the office and drove back home with a whoooole lot less money and nothing to show for it (yet, of course). I like to call it "the least exciting closing ever." Unexciting is better than stressful and crazy so I'll take it!
Not having the house doesn't mean I can't share some pictures I took while we did the home inspection, right!? Before I start, I'll be upfront with you all, this isn't much of an upgrade as most people would expect to take when buying a new home- for one, the new house is just about the exact same size as our current house. The new house is, however, in a much better location and has the potential for a future addition (current house does not). AND-AND-AND-*this is most important of all*- the new house has a bonus garage apartment in the back that we plan to use for extra income before we build the addition!
So... here it is (really bad, fuzzy pictures and all):
*selling feature* I loved how this home had a designated entry space and coat closet.
*selling feature* I love the original hardwood floors that go through most of the house.
*selling feature* original solid wood doors
*selling feature* double windows in almost every space
*selling feature* before we build the addition, it will be nice to have the double closets
*selling feature* we should be able to rent this out easily in the $500-$600 range
We can't wait to get those keys and get started on making this place "ours." Can you guess which projects we'll tackle first?
