It's a miracle.
We bought a HOUSE!
And yes this the house we originally loved, made an offer on, were told it was going into foreclosure and that our offer was rejected, and then were given another chance to buy it.
Here's how it all worked out.
After our offer was rejected we resumed our house hunt.
We couldn't find anything.
About 3 weeks after our first offer was rejected, the bank called our realtor and explained a huge mistake had been made on their end.
The house was not supposed to be in foreclosure and if we wanted to resubmit our offer, we would have another chance to buy it.
So we did.
And last Saturday we found out we got it.
We are SO happy. :)
In total we've looked at close to 3 dozen homes and none of them felt right or met our criteria.
Except for this one.
Even when we thought it had slipped through our fingers, we still couldn't help but talk about and compare everything else we saw to it.
If you've house hunted before and found a home you love, maybe you'll understand what I mean when I say that when we walked into this house for the first time, we just KNEW it was meant for us.
We knew logically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually...it just felt like home.
And on Friday when we sign all the paper work it will be ours. :)
We feel so grateful to be blessed with the opportunity given to us again to buy it.
We feel so grateful for our families and friends and their advice and wisdom and support in this process.
We just feel so grateful.
PS. More pictures coming soon. :)
