New House

We found a new house. Now we have to get to work packing up this house and moving into the new one. We close on both homes June 29th and move on July 1st. Enjoy some pictures we took of the new house.

Home Inspection

Up to this point we have enjoyed living in an older home. It has character and isn't a cookie-cutter home like so many in newer sub-divisions.
Last week was the home inspection on our current home. We went into it thinking there wouldn't be much to do or fix since we have taken good care of our house. The home inspector didn't seem to think so.
There was quite a list submitted by the Buyer of things they wanted fixed. Some of the things were rediculous and petty. After a lot of back and forth negotiations, we finally came to an agreement on what we will do, although it means a lot more money out of our pockets than we had originally anticipated.
-- Radon Mitigation System installed
-- treat for carpenter ants
-- new High Efficiency furnace
-- have a plumber fix the vent from the water heater
-- have an electrician change some circuits and other miscellaneous issues

Hayley Madelynn Wisener

Sorry the pictures are so small, it was the best I could do.
Jeff's brother and sister-in-law had their second baby this past week, on May 5th.
Hayley Madelynn, welcome to the world!!!

Listed and Sold

I was planning on getting a blog up with our house listing, but since it took me a week to get that done, our house sold in the meantime. Our house was on the market for only 5 days (which is almost unheard of in the market), and we got almost a full-price offer. We now have 45-55 days until the closing on this house to find a new house and close on it so we can move seamlessly.
In case you were interested in seeing our house listing and the completed renovations, copy and paste this link into your web browser:
We went out this afternoon with our Realtor and saw about a dozen houses. There were only about 2 we would consider seeing again. We are going out again on Tuesday to see a few more. Hopefully we can make a decision soon. Who knew finding a new house would be more stressful than selling our current house.
We will keep you updated on the house search.
