For those of you who keep up with us on instagram or snapchat, you may have seen the news that we are moving this year! Same city, but we have outgrown our rental and are more than ready to call a place our own and plant some roots.

The market in north Atlanta is a little nutty right now. It’s kind of a shark tank! We would be looking daily for houses to come on the market, and often times there were already three offers over the asking price before we could even see the home. It’s a sellers market! We looked at hundreds of homes online and in person, and were beginning to lose hope we’d find something by summer with the aspects we were needing.

On Wednesday our awesome realtor spotted a home that had JUST been listed, and got us in to see it within a few hours. We were the first to see the home, and Gabe and I knew almost right away it was the one we wanted to commit to. (I swear you guys it’s almost harder to know which house than which spouse!) We put in an offer right away….

Offer accepted. Still a little in shock. Head still spinning. Nervous butterflies and all. We are still holding our breath until closing day, and I will share more details about the home and first time home buyer experience soon! But until then, wanted to thank you for all your prayers and good lucks for us in the process!

It’s Veronica’s birthday on Monday so we have a good deal to celebrate over here!

  • Congrats!! Such a great feeling. The market is similar in San Diego. I would find the perfect house and by the time I could get my husband to see it two days later, it was gone. It takes time but it’s worth it in the end. Owning your own home is so rewarding. 🙂

  • Congrats! That is so exciting! I loved finding our house and getting moved into it and decorating. It’s a nerve wracking experience for sure but so worth it in the end!

  • Congratulations Anna! We went through this in Portland in the summer of 2014. It was extremely stressful. We had to offer a short inspection period to be competitive on the house we finally got, and that was the worst part for me because issues came up and we didn’t have a lot of time to negotiate and get answers. I never want to go through that again. I agree it’s easier to commit to your spouse. I hope your inspections, appraisal and escrow go smoothly now so the hard part is behind you. 🙂

  • Congratulations! So happy for you!

  • Oh Anna! I am soooo happy for you! It’s such a thrill. Will be praying inspection and closing go so well! I can’t wait to see it – I’m sure it’s a beauty!!

  • Wow, Congrats!!! What a great feeling!!!
    I love your comparison of buying a house to choosing a spouse – so true – ha!
    My husband & I bought one of the very first houses we looked at and, like you guys, as soon as we walked in we just ‘knew’! Almost 5 years later we’re definitely starting to outgrow our cozy home but I have so many memories here that I never want to leave!
    God bless your family and your new home!

  • Congratulations! I am so happy your offer was accepted 🙂 I can’t wait to see the new place and follow how you will make it yours! Best of luck with the coming steps!

  • Yahoo! Congrats!

  • Congratulations!!! ❤️?

  • Yay! Congratulations!!! Can’t wait to see photos of the new place. And thanks so much for the link love to my workspace tables. Hugs!

  • Congrats, Anna. My fiancé and I just closed on a little condo to start our married life together. I pray that you do not encounter any problems before the keys are in your hands!!!

  • Congrats on the home! I live up north too. I swear God gave us this house because I don’t know how we got it before anyone else.

  • YAY!!!! So happy for you guys!! God is good!

    Anna, Is it really pink? I already love it. So excited for you guys and I can’t wait to see more and hear more. Pat S

  • I totally missed this. Congratulations and good luck! I’ll look forward to reading about your experience because we’re going to be hunting later this year.

  • Yay, Anna!! Congrats!! The hardest part is getting the offer accepted. We were in the same boat when we went to buy our home a year and half ago. Prayers for you guys until you get your keys. So exciting!!

  • Congrats to you guys! The market here right now is INSANE! So glad you made it though! Praying for a smooth closing for you guys! We’re hoping for better luck next year when our lease is up on our rental again! Hopefully things calm down in Marietta by then!

  • Many congrats – this is such a wonderful new step for you and your family! We are considering buying next year but the market here is also insane. We’ll cross our fingers and see!
