3 bed. 2 bath. Transitional or farmhouse. Garage. Something with character.
I started yesterday by revising our “must haves” and “would be nice” list. It was a good release after months, ok, about a year, of looking at houses online. So many ideas and preferences. Likes and dislikes. Chad and I have started the process of looking for a place of our own, and we began with inquiring about a fixer-upper a few miles from our house. It is a white farmhouse that needs A TON of work. It was fun to imagine ourselves there. Although it was pulled from the market for bank-related reasons, it got us moving.
Space for outside entertainment. Glen Allen. Edge of rural. A home office/client meeting space.
Between college, getting married, and jobs, I’ve moved every year since 2004. I’m kind of ready to settle down. Put my favorite colors on the walls. Make use of all of my Pinterest ideas! We met with a realtor last night. Over a pumpkin spice latte and a slideshow, we talked with a real estate agent about our future home. What we wanted and liked, and what we are not interested in. We’re ready to keep the ball rolling. It keeps hitting me – we’re going to be first time home owners. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon.
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
Are you a home owner? Have any advice for us newbs?
