New House!!!

Posted by Scott Holstad on January 18, 2014

We have a new house! We made an offer on a house on Wednesday. Yesterday, the sellers accepted our offer and we’re thrilled. Not only are we getting a great house for less than they wanted, but we’re getting a big grill, patio furniture, and more. Sweet! I can’t believe they accepted the original offer. I’ve never had that happen before.

The house is about the same size as our current house. It’s about 2100 square feet. It’s got four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. A roomy two car garage, which we’ve never had, ever and which I’m so excited about. A nice deck covering part of a nice patio. And it’s in a nice, quiet, safe and small neighborhood on a mountain, in the Big Ridge section of Hixson, a Chattanooga suburb.

We started looking last month mainly because of crime. And noise. But really crime. Our house was broken into and burglarized last year. Last month, there was a murder at our grocery store only a half mile from us. Over the past few months, there have been 52 crimes in our neighborhood. It’s a nice, middle class neighborhood that’s been invaded by thugs, and it sucks because we love our current house. It’s got a huge kitchen and the biggest den I’ve ever seen.

But the new house has a nice sized living room, a pretty dining room, a decent kitchen, the four bedrooms, one of which will be an office and another a library, a nice sized laundry room, and a large back area full of trees and woods making the house across a little valley seem very far away. In other words, very private. We like that.

We hope to close this month, believe it or not, and move perhaps the third week of February. We can’t move on a rainy day though, because while our current house has hardwood floors, the new one has carpets and we don’t want mud tracked through the house.

We’re very excited about this and my mom is possibly more excited than we are. It’s funny. I think she wants to live there. I’m going to try and post some pics. I always have trouble posting pics on WordPress, so I don’t know how they’ll turn out, but here they are:
