So, Lemme Tell Ya...

Now that I've sprung it on ya that we've moved ... lemme tell ya about our new home.
We got it for a steal. The previous owner moved in, excited to be in a family neighborhood. She's older, but not elderly by any means - but she got injured and checked into a nursing home, leaving her daughter to take care of the house payments. The daughter liquidated all of the accounts and ran off with the money. The owner just wanted to sell it quickly, and we were able to accommodate. 

It helps that the photos online were awful. I kept this home saved on my Zillow search - I removed it over and over, but figured I ought to add it back on. Literally for no reason (except for, ya know, divine intervention) - look at the pictures:
 There are a few other pictures, but they are mostly of the water heater, central vac system, and sprinkler system. I have no idea why they did that - but, I'm guessing that's why it didn't sell. We were in the area on Saturday, seeing a different house (one I had seen the day before, Friday, and was taking Eric and the kids to see) and I was notified the night before (thanks to my saved search) that the price had dropped, again. It became close to our price range so I asked if we could take a peek - why not? Well, voila. We fell in love. This isn't just a house, it's a home, and we felt it immediately.

So, I have taken some other "before" pictures to show you what the interior looks like, truly, since the listing pictures are ridiculously drab, tasteless, and are lacking in actual home footage. I'll do the "after" ones one day.
