A lot of you have been trying to keep up with out current journey of home buying. But there’s a lot.
There’s new news on a daily basis.
For starters, we had a house under contract at the same time our house was under contract. The plan was to close on the same day so we could leave ours and move into another.
We had outgrown our house big time!
About two weeks prior to closing day, things fell through on the house we were buying. We had two weeks to figure out what we were going to do.
After much praying, many tears shed, and lots of home searching, we thought we had found the house for us. It was being built, so everything was going to be new.
It was everything I wanted in a house. It had a good portion of land. The only downer was that it was in a neighborhood. David and I are country bumpkins. I plan to have chickens in the near future. I want more animals too.
We had researched to be sure there was no HOA on the new house and then we put it under contract.
Fortunately, we were blessed with a friend that had a trailer we could rent until the house was ready.
After a meeting with the construction company, we found out that the neighborhood we were planning to live in had a CCR. Yep. I didn’t know they existed either. Basically, it’s an HOA with no fees. They had all kinds of crazy rules.
David and I instantly knew we wouldn’t be happy living there. So, I sent the email and we filled out the paperwork. We backed out.
Now, we are searching for a new home to call our own. As blessed as we are to have a place to stay, we do not want to live in a rental very long. We want our own place where we can bring our stuff from storage.
There seems to be nothing in an area we like, the size we want, for the price we are looking for.
So we wait.
Everything we love goes under contract before we can make an offer on it.
So we wait. We pray. We trust that God has a bigger and better plan for us.
The last few days have been tough. It’s been very discouraging for me to say the least. I’ve almost lost hope on finding what we want.
But I believe that God has a plan and through all this, He is waiting to show us what He has in store for us.
When it rains, it pours.
But after the rain comes new life.
Here’s to our new life. Here’s to our dream. Here’s to bigger and better things. Here’s to God’s plan for us. Here’s to the wait.
