Things have changed with Cares. Long story-short, it just wasn't a good fit for us anymore or for our apartment community. After discussions with our Regional Director, we felt that it would be better for the Cares Program if we stepped aside and let a new Cares Team come in and start fresh. We think Cares is great, but with Matt student teaching and with the adoption process, we knew it was only going to be tougher to do a great job as a Cares Team. So, now we will be done with Cares in September.
So, for the last 2 weeks, the house-hunting process was accelerated. We looked a lot on our own for the first week. Drove to all areas of town, explored lots (thinking we would build a modular home), a family home that had recently been re-done, and houses we found on the internet. We were fairly discouraged with the options that were in our price-range. So we knew we needed help.
We signed with a realtor last Friday, August 3rd. We knew we wanted to work with Brent anyway but didn't know how great he would be! After our initial meeting and signing a buyer's agreement with him, we got lots of emails with potential houses. We checked out several over the weekend but only wanted to see the inside of one house.
|Love the wood floors, gas fireplace, high ceilings and openness.|
|Losing closet space but excited about hardwoods, double sink and being on the first floor!|
|Check out the patio and playset!|
I'm including lots of pictures. These are all from the listing site. I hope to have more pictures after our inspection on Monday.
|Nursery not pictured. Kinda bummed about no pantry but (hopefully) plenty of cabinets.|
