Our First Home
On October 14, 2016 we bought our first home ever in Macon, MO. What a blessing it has been!
Our home shopping experience was so good. Here is what we knew we wanted, before we jumped in:
- We wanted to be able to afford the down payment.
- We wanted a small home, with affordable utilities.
- We wanted it to be move-in ready.
- We wanted at least 3 bedrooms.
Our list was not very demanding, because our pockets were not huge. Can you relate? The two things that really mattered was a move in ready place, and the right price.
We had an amazing realtor to work with. He made us feel like he was on our team, and not trying to make a sale. We felt like I could tell him exactly what we were thinking, and that was key. Since this was our first time looking to buy a home, it was very important for us to be able to communicate freely when making such an important decision!
We visited around 10 homes, before we found our favorite one. When we drove up to our "now home" to see it, we knew immediately this was gonna be our pick! It was a surreal feeling. It was exactly what we wanted: 3 bedrooms, the right price, small & move-in ready!
The best part is that it came with a lot of pleasant surprises including an amazing yard, a basement, so much parking space, 2 car garage, outside city limits, & just so adorable.
Of course its not perfect, but it is perfect for us!
