What a crazy week it's been! Our house officially went on the market yesterday morning and within a couple of hours we had our first showing. And two more today. And another one scheduled for Saturday. Holy moly! When they said the market was hot right now around here, they weren't kidding.
They also broke ground at our new home this week so Jared and I have already driven by twice to watch the progress. Right now it's still a lot of dirt being dug up and moved around but I know things are happening fast. We can't wait to stop by and see the framing actually going up! Hopefully starting next week I can blog about the process as we go through it. We are building what I guess you'd call a "semi-custom" home. Meaning, there is a developer/home builder that we are going through and while we get to customize the things we want within the house, it's not like we are starting totally from scratch and designing our own blueprints or anything. In all my blog stalking I haven't found as much about that process as those who fully customize- so I plan on sharing our experience :)
It's going to be in the 60s for the next week or so starting today and I swear I'm about to put on shorts and flip flops I'm that excited! Since we have to get out of the house a lot for the showings I'm thrilled we'll be able to be out and about, hit up some parks for long walks and maybe even do something fun like the zoo if we're really feeling adventurous. I truly hope winter just never shows up... but I worry this crazy weather will come back to haunt us and and it'll be snowing in April. Which is not allowed.
I hope everyone has had a good week- and maybe some of you are getting a long weekend? I never got President's Day off while I was working, but it seems a lot of places do. All the schools around us are off today and Monday- sheesh! What's everyone getting into this weekend? Anyone want to entertain us while people traipse through our house and fall in love with it ;)
