We’d been looking for a house for about the past 2 years. You know the drill, scanning the real estate ads, and going to open houses… It was sort of a hobby for my partner. I’d catch him late at night at the laptop clicking away at the homes database.
Well it finally paid off last weekend. We bid on a house and won! My head is still reeling from the numbers and the paperwork. The DC market is so extreme in prices and competition. It’s not like our first house hunt at least. In one war we were competing against 10 other offers. (We lost.) This house only had a couple other bids.
The next two months will be insane as we now have to get our current house ready to sell. It’s all still sinking in. I’ve had this hammock dream for a while and when I stepped onto that screened in back porch and saw my hammock strung up, it was love. I know as those future late nights packing are staring at me I’ll need to retreat to that perfect summer afternoon with the birds singing, bugs hopping, book in hand and the perfect nap. Aaaaaah.
