Time to upgrade!

Rob and I have been talking for a while about getting a bigger house. We have been causally looking on Zillow. Our house needed a few things done before we wanted to sell so we weren't really in a hurry. One day I went and checked out a house and I think it got me excited to start looking for a bigger house. 

The next weekend Rob had off, we went and looked at 2 houses on Sunday. One in Lodi and one in Galt. We looked at the Lodi house 1st and fell in love! It has everything we need! So much space! But we still wanted to check out the house in Galt since it had a pool. It was nice, but we really liked the Lodi house. 

So on Monday our amazing realtor, Eileen Schamber, contacted the seller and they weren't going to take any offers since the house was somewhat pending. So we were bummed. But later that day, they decided to take an offer from us! So we sent one over and they accepted! We were ecstatic!! So over the moon excited! But know we knew we had to get our house sold before we could get this one. 

We were in a mad rush since the photographer was headed over on Tuesday. I don't think I have ever work that hard to get the house picture ready in a day! It was crazy! We moved a ton of stuff into storage but we had it ready in time. 

The house went on the Market on Wednesday- yes... that same week! We had our 1st private showing on Thursday and 2 open houses over the weekend. We accepted an offer on Sunday or Monday, which put the new house into escrow! 

All that was done in a WEEK! Yes, just a week! Now we are a the end of the tunnel and just waiting for the closing date on our current house and our new house. We are so lucky to have Eileen as our Realtor not just because she is amazing, but because she knows us. She knows our kids and all about our crazy life. I knew she wouldn't let us buy a home that wasn't a good fit for us. 

Until next time- hopefully from our new house!
