Moving On

When we first bought our town home, we said we would be here 2-3 years.  We've been here almost 5.  We decided to get pre qualified and start looking for a home.  Ultimately, we wanted to be in Herriman or Riverton so that we were closer to both of our jobs.  We looked at quite a few homes and even new construction.  I think we were wanting something a lot newer but we had a certain floor plan in mind.  The problem with a lot of new construction anymore is that you don't get much of a yard.  Our realtor who also happens to be a good friend of my husband found a house in West Jordan that he thought we would like.  It was a little older but had a similar floor plan to what we were looking for.  As soon as we pulled up, we loved the outside.  Then we fell in love with the inside as well.  It needs some updating, but has 5 bedrooms, including a full mother in law apartment in the basement.  The yard is also big and will be great for the kids.  We decided to put in an offer and after a couple of counter offers, we are under contract!  We had an inspection yesterday and there's a lot of little maintenance things that need to be done.  There is also some updating that needs to be done so I will post before and after pictures later, but here's a pic of the outside.  We are set to close to first part of December and just need to get working on renting out our town home!  Here's to new adventures!
