So, for 2 years now, we've been looking for a house to buy (our first.) We had started looking into building and found a builder that would build for us, but it just didn't work out because of the type of loans. So one night, Josh was online looking at houses for sale and found this building company that was having a March Madness incentive when you bought a house. $5,000 towards closing costs and $8,000 in upgrades! We decided to go check it out. We found a great house and signed a contract the next day! It's like, when we knew, we knew. The house is brand new, it's 3 bedrooms with a formal dining room we're going to turn into a 4th bedroom. We got to upgrade all kinds of great stuff! The house came with a dishwasher and a stove so we upgraded to a flat top range, added a refrigerator, got hardwood floors in the foyer, kitchen and breakfast area, got 8 lb pads under the carpets in the rest of the house, added wood blinds to the whole house, got a shower door put on our stand up shower, put tile down in the master bedroom and added an automatic garage door opener!

Then, we went back to sign some papers and turn in our earnest money and found out we had been approved for the loan!! We are so excited that everything is coming together!!! I'm still so scared that something is going to happen though. It's like, it's not going to be real until we close and get the keys! Close date is April 19th so I'll probably be a nervous wreck for the next month

Just pray or cross your fingers or whatever you do for all this to work out for us! We've already outgrown this house with the 4 of us living here and now we're about to add another person in just a couple weeks so we really need for everything to go through....and smoothly, with no hiccups would be great too

Thank y'all. I'm sure everything will work out, but I'm still nervous. It seems every time we've gotten our hopes up about a house, we've been disappointed.
