the other house

Hola!  Just wanted to give you a quick little house update.  A lot of you had great things to say about the potential house I posted about earlier this week.  I still agree that with a little TLC, that house could be amazing and I hope the right person finds it and makes it shine like new!  However, because of it's location and the fact that split-levels have a bad rap for some reason (personally, I love them!), our realtor let us know that the resale value for that house would most likely not be great.  The more we thought about it, the more we fell in love with our second choice, due to it's awesome location in a great neighborhood close to Chloe's school.  (I hope I'm not hurting it's feelings by calling it our "second choice"!  I love you, house!)  This place needs some serious updating too, obviously, but not quite as much as the first house.  

I'll let you be the judge.

Bonus! There's a third bathroom that's not shown here, along with a laundry room and a 2-car garage.  The house is over 1700 square feet, which is a big improvement over the 900 square feet we're currently working with in our rental.  I'm really looking foward to DIYing a lot of the updates in this house, and of course blogging every step of the way!

If you can't tell yet, I'm pretty psyched about this place!  I've already started a Pinterest board for paint colors and am so excited to just get in there and get 'er done!  That is, of course, if our offer is accepted.  I'm probably jinxing myself with this post but I was just too excited not to share.

Hope you're having a terrific Thursday!

    1. Thanks! Our realtor just faxed me over the sale agreement to sign but I caught some weird things on it so I just emailed him back with some questions. Hope it goes smoothly!

    1. Thanks!! Yes I cannot wait to have 3 bathrooms! Even though that means three times the cleaning. We'll have to just keep one bathroom "off limits" unless we have company, haha.
