I am often confused at the universe. On one hand, I believe that anything that’s worth having takes work. On the other hand, I believe that when something is meant to be, it comes easily. I have found both of these beliefs to be especially true these past few weeks.
We’re buying a house ya’ll!
More to the point: I’m buying a house! Ever since that whole “short sale thing” in Florida, my husband is ineligible to be approved for a mortgage for a minimum of 2-3 years. We thought that we’d be renting again for at least another 6 months to a year before we’d be able to co-apply for a mortgage, BUT since I am a veteran and since I’ve never used my VA loan benefits for a mortgage, the bank was able to approve little ole me completely for a mortgage.
Here it is and it’s gorgeous. And it’s ON FOUR ACRES!! I can hardly grasp how this is all happening so fast, but it’s been almost effortless. It’s a foreclosure and we stole it hot-handed from the bank. The previous owners hardly lived in it at all and it’s practically brand new.
It needs some paint and a few minor upgrades, but other than that, it’s everything we’ve ever wanted. It does need the basement finished, but we are working on getting that going. We close the first week of July. I can hardly contain my excitement thinking about the gardening fun I’m going to have!
Things are going to be picking up around here!
