In escrow

20 Apr

We bought a house!  We are not moving, its a second house we are going to use for a rental.

We had been saving  for awhile and were blessed to receive some inheritance money when my grandparents passed away, so about a year ago, when the market took a dive, we started thinking of how we could use our money and invest wisely. 

I know this way will take some work, but I am pretty excited about this house.  Out of all the houses we put offers on (I think there was over 50), this one is in the best neighborhood and in pretty good shape.  Just a few fixers and a new paint job

If everything works out, this could be a good free me up to go part-time someday if we have kids. 

We’ve been praying about this for awhile and I am glad God had us hold out.

    Hey Becca, if you get the house do you know how much rent you will be charging? Just curious.

    See Becca, you’ve got a potential renter already. Praise God! What a great adventure for you and Andrew. God Bless

    Yay! So glad you found one you really like. It sounds like a fun project to sink your teeth into this summer!

    Do you have some time set aside this summer when Dad and I could come down and help you “fix it up?”
    (in between travels of course!)
