We had no idea we would be making such a decision that day!!! Surprised us both! We were not prepared and MC made a trip to the bank to get a check so we could write the deposit!
In the end, it made sense because there was only one house left that was the Model we preferred. If we sold the BLH quickly, we wanted a place to go! Linda had put the house on the market the week before.
Within a three hour period, the contract was written , wood flooring, cabinetry, outdoor lighting, brick color, wall paint color, hardware and carpet were all chosen!!!! Did it all!!! Having worked as a New Construction Realtor for many years, helping buyers choose their colors, etc. really came in handy that afternoon!
Meg Thompson, the Site Agent, was very helpful and Linda, our Agent, was a Godsend! MC had no idea what we were choosing. He stayed out of the process entirely! He left it up to me, saying he knew I would choose wisely!!!
At six o'clock we were on the road on our way to celebrate at Macaroni Grill!!! Linda treated us to a fabulous meal and a bottle of wine!
The day was unbelievable. I guess when something is right, it's meant to be!
NOW ALL WE HAD TO DO WAS SELL THE BLH!!
We had Thanksgiving, our Home on the Sun City Holiday Tour, Christmas and New Years ahead of us! The time went by very quickly!
The construction of our new home continued. We made weekly trips to see the progress.
On January 14th, a charming couple from Florida, drove up to see the house. The next afternoon, the 15th, they wrote a Contract contingent on the sale of their home in Florida.
Long story SHORT.......they sold their home and we closed on our HAPPILY EVER AFTER HOME last Friday, March 28th. The movers unloaded all our "stuff" that afternoon! Saturday, March 29th I had unpacked 60 boxes and the kitchen was fully operating! We still have pictures, mirrors to hang and lots and lots of projects.
I'm sure you want to SEE some pictures. I have a few, surprise!
PICTURES DURING THE FOUR MONTHS OF CONSTRUCTION
UNFINISHED ATTIC....A HUGE BONUS
Now you have an idea of our doings over the last four months. We have been busy!
The success of the sale of the BLH was ALL DUE to our FABULOUS REALTOR,
Without Linda, none of the above would have come to be!
