Now that John is guaranteed a position and we know what he will make... I find myself dreaming of a new house. We've already decided that we are going to move - hopefully this year but we haven't really started looking or planning what we need to do to our house to get it ready. I never thought we would make the deadline for the tax credit but now I'm hopeful.
I was looking on line today at the Reece and Nicoles site and found this house... http://www.reeceandnichols.com/KS/Lenexa/66215/homes-for-sale/7903-ROSEHILL-Road-45726360 (You'll have to cut and paste.)
I'm in love!!!! Well I guess I should wait to say that until I see it in person but seriously. It has 5 bedrooms so plenty of room to grow into. It's almost 3000 sq ft which is almost three times bigger than our current house. But the best part for me is the location. Smack dab in between SMMC and SM Park! Less than 3 miles away in either direction. John could actually ride his bike to work if he wanted! : ) I know I'm just super pumped right now. There would be a LOT of work to do if we actually do decide to move soon. I would have to commit to doing most of the work myself because John really has to focus on finishing school. If we get our new roof as planned than I think we would just have to do some painting inside and out and something to the front porch and we could sell it. That $6500 tax credit is very enticing but we would have to have a contract by the end of April and close by the end of June. Not impossible I guess but maybe stressful. We want the next place we move to be the house we raise our kids in. This house looks positively dreamy to me with its big trees and newly renovated interior.
I can't wait to see what John thinks... of course he's at work right now so I can't talk to him about it. : (
