We're Moving, Again!

Yup, it's happening. So yesterday we exchanged contracts with completion set for today! (HURRAH!)  We received our final searches back last week and ever since, we'd been trying to exchange contracts, but for one reason or another it kept getting delayed and delayed. But finally, here we are - home owners for a second time!

It's pretty darn crazy - from the moment we put the offer in on the house, we never genuinely believed we would ever get it! We paid a whopping £2k over the asking price to secure it against a cash buyer's offer and never thought it would be accepted. We also maxxed out our mortgage and had concerns that would cause us problems but remarkably our purchase went through smoother than we could ever have imaged - If only our sale could have been so simple? 

All that aside, I just can't wait to get stuck in! I don't tend to fall in love with houses, I see potential and a place I could live.. But I've never felt that 'feeling' I've heard others describe. I suppose I'm not that picky, I could pretty much live anywhere - but with this house I did get that feeling. I don't think I'll ever be able to leave! 

So it's been 10 months since we listed our first house for sale, 1 month since we sold and moved out, a whopping 18 houses we visited, and it all comes down to today and this house. A new place to call home... Watch this space!
