First Home

This praise report has been long over-due, but about 4 months or so ago, I submitted a prayer request about purchasing a home. My husband and I had been looking since before our wedding in August of 2012, but every time we thought we found “the one,” it would sell on us. We began searching again after our wedding and had saw some pretty nice homes, but our realtor pointed out that the cost of a resell was about the same as just building in the neighborhood we were looking in, so we started looking into building. We ended up walking a brand new home where another couple had designed together, but ended up backing out of their contract. We were in love! We met with our realtor about the necessary steps to placing an offer, and we finally thought this was over, but that following week, the price went up on the home, making it over our budget. We were working back and forth with the builder, trying to work up a deal, but there was already another family that was willing to pay full price! We lost it :-(. The builder mentioned that they were opening up some lots in the next few months so we could build that same floorplan on another lot and have more control so that we could stay within budget. Long story short, after much prayer and fasting, we will be closing on our new home within 30days! This home will be way more house than we need right now, but we got more house for our money than we would if we were to have gone with a re-sell in the same price range. After submitting that initial prayer request, any anxiety or bad feelings about purchasing this house faded, so we knew this was the right path that God had set for us. Thank you KSBJ for your prayers!
