I have a dream

We bought our home 14 years ago.  We got it at a really really good price but I never intended to stay here for a long time.  I never really liked the house.  As life is though, here we are, still in the same house, 14 years later.

We’ve gone through countless times where we would look at houses.  Never really seriously but open to buying something else if we find something we like.

Then this week, we relooked at things and we are in full-swing house hunting mode.  We already have the bond sorted (since we aren’t selling our current home, we are taking a bond on the new home)

We were driving around yesterday again and then on our way home, we drove down a street where we haven’t looked before.  There I found it, my dream home, unoccupied.  We got out and walked around the home.  Perfect.  4 Bedrooms.  Wooden floors.  Beautiful pool.  Stunning bathrooms.  Extra room and bathroom attached to the home.  The pool has it’s own outside room, with shower and toilet. 

It’s just perfect.  It’s a little bit more than we actually want to pay though.  We’ll make an offer tomorrow and hopefully after some negotiation, the current owner will accept our offer.  I really really really hope so.  I’m totally in love with this home.
