The Cloziers Bought a House!
Hmm... that doesn't sound right. 'The Glarkes move to Moonstone'... nope.. reminds me of a noise a frog would make.. Glarrrrrrrke. 'Clarke and Glozier - Sale and Closure" NAILED IT. That's the one!
We did it. We bought a friggin house in the country! I used to list over and over year after year "home in the country" on my goals list. So when dreams come true and goals are accomplished... well gosh darn you write a blog about it and share it with those you care about.
The purchase so was random and quick it was as though fate pressed a fast forward button. Now let's see...How to begin our story...
It was actually Chad who wanted to see the house, he sent the house details to me and I thought "well that looks weird but if you want to view it then okay."
You see folks, we bought a chalet (sounds so fancy). Now this women here hasn't been acquainted with many chalets so my thoughts were... why would they make the roof so slanted?? But I agreed to see the strangely built house for my man, 'cause you know, all that relationship compromise stuff.
Anyways, that weekend wasn't available for viewing so Chad and I decided to take the pooch and drive by the house and check out the area ourselves first. Well.. it was love at first dog walk. All the trees in full glory with their fall colours, everyone we passed waved at us as we went; it felt like I was meant to be there.
The next weekend it was viewing time and it turned out they were having an open house! As more people came and went I jokingly declared to Chad "get these people outta my house" and within the hour we decided to put in an offer.
This was the first house we liked enough to put in an offer, so with smiles and excitement we told Cassidy Lemoine, our incredible real estate agent, we wanted to put in an offer and she got straight to work! We found out quickly that they had already accepted an offer; it has contingencies but was accepted. We said "well s#%t balls" and low balled a price that we would be comfortable with, because we had nothing to lose and doubted we would get the house. They came back wanted about 20k more but again already knowing defeat we went up 5k more said that was final and continued with life.
The next weekend we were having our fourth thanksgiving dinner (you read that right, our forth) when we found out ... they freaking accepted our offer and we bought a freaking chalet!! Holy freaking s#%t!! 7 weeks later we were in our new home.
