We've always lived in apartments. We've always wanted to live in a house, but the timing has never been right, until now. My mom wanted to invest in real estate, we wanted to rent a house. So my mom put in a bid on the perfect house for our situation. A house that had been badly damaged in a fire and needed to be completely remodeled. The bid went in on the house in July and we still haven't closed because of a lot of red tape. The closing date has finally been set so we are starting to let ourselves get excited. We are hoping to move in this Spring! We (especially the dog) can't wait!
