We're Moving!!!

That's right my friends, today was a BIG day!

A couple came through our home with the agent this morning, and made us an offer. A very reasonable offer - of cash. That's right, cash!! They don't need to sell a home, or to organise finance. They loved our house and knew right away it was the right one for them. Obviously a building and pest inspection will happen in the next 14 days and if they are fine, we'll be moving. Wow. My head is still spinning from this rather sudden offer. :) Our house has only been on the market for 6 days!!! In 30 DAYS we need to be packed and moved. Out. Into something. Into a new home.

A new home we are yet to find.

I have a feeling the next couple of days will be a whirlwind as we look at everything on the market and make a very big decision.

If we can't settle on a property, we may choose to rent for a few months until we find something we just know is the right place. Or maybe we'll buy land and build our dream home......?

Ultimately I trust the right home or land is out there with our name on it, and that He'll lead us there in His grace.
Time for a new chapter in our family life to begin!! We're holding on and are ready for the next adventure. :)

Please, I would SO welcome your prayers and any advice / tips / opinions on this whole situation!!

How exciting! And so quickly! What a blessing! Around here the market is very sluggish so houses tend to be for sale for months before they sell.

Congratulations! I know God has your new home well in hand. Happy looking.

That's so exciting! It's unheard of around here for a house to sell in 6 days, especially with no financing contingencies. Amazing!

I'll be praying for God to guide you to the perfect house :)

How exciting! I love the feeling of new places, coming to know the area, the leaves and trees and grasses...
Maybe it's the fae-child in me. I'm so glad God has led you to a beautiful new house, and provided for your old house! Blessings, and let me know how everything goes!

God is so good. Amazing that you got a cash offer just six days after listing. Guess painting the picket fence was a wise thing to do :)!! I am sure the buyers could feel the positive energy and peaceful spirit that I sense must infuse your home.
