Our Place

After scouring the real estate ads and speaking with several agents we finally found the perfect one.
Camille has been an angel going above and beyond what anyone would expect a real estate agent to do.
She knew we had a limited budget and took the time to listen and figure out exactly the kind of place we were looking for.

After a few weeks of looking through different properties she found us the perfect place, within budget and has lots of potential.

We went and looked at it and immediately fell in love with the land. There is an old singlewide mobile home on the property that needs work but the land is exactly what we are looking for.

We went to her office and put in an offer on the property on August 10 and the waiting began.

We waited ...
and waited ...
and waited ...

finally they got back to us and counter offered.

We discussed whether we could accept the counter offer and came up with a counter of our own.

Again we waited...
After about two weeks going back and forth we finallly settled on a number that was satisfactory to all.

We're getting the money for this place through a settlement that is due to Kevin from an injury and as soon as the check clears the place is ours.

But still we're waiting. Ugh. I hate waiting.

In the mean time I'll post a few picture of our place.

This is the view from the driveway. Its alot more overgrown than this shows. As soon as I can I'll post some updated picures.

A shot from the backside of the mobile home.

You can't see if from these pictures but there is about another half acre on the front side of the mobile home that will be ours as well.

Here's an aerial shot.

Now a few interior shots...
Yeah I know, the blue has got to go! I'm thinking of doing a rich creamy yellowish color with a subtle green trim color.

And the living room...
Where you see the front door there is a small built on room that we'll have to tear down. We plan on building onto the mobile home later.

There are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths but I don't have pictures of those yet.

I'm so excited. I can't wait until everything goes through.
Now back to waiting...
