My husband and I bought our first and only home in the fall of 2007. We didn’t renew our apartment least and moved into my parent’s house that summer while we began the process of house hunting. We were planning on five years in the house, but wanted something that could last us longer, if that is where life took us.
I am fortunate enough to have a dad as a realtor, so not only do I have my dad guiding me, but I have an awesome realtor looking out for me. There were some things about our home we were completely unwilling to compromise on, but there were a lot of things I was able to look past. In the 6+ years we have lived in our house we have torn down walls, gutted spaces, ripped up flooring, refinished flooring, painted and really put in some major work to create a space that is a HOME.
Here is a side by side.
Man do I wish we took more before photos!
We love our house– we really do, but we are selling. A whole other life stage, we are now looking to sell our first home. We are looking for a new home to love all over again. It is exciting and scary.
BMO Harris Bank Scavenger Hunt Sweepstakes is a five-week long interactive game experience that offers financial tips and the chance to win cash prizes by entering a weekly sweepstakes! The game takes you through a town-like environment, highlighting key milestones in the journey of life. Each week opens a new environment that focuses on a life stage moment, where you can discover relevant financial information and collect tokens for a chance to win anywhere from $500-$2,000. Check it out on Facebook. Other milestone I have shared are: new baby, and my first job. This week’s milestone is buying a home.
I would love to know about your first home. Have you ever sold a house? What are your must haves in a forever home?
