HOUSE SOLD

Photobucket


It has been a long and bumpy roller coaster. We ended up under contract for nearly SIX months, because we had signed two contracts previous to this one. Honestly, who does that happen to? The closing date was moved over Five times, yes you heard me five times.   We were lucky to have buyers that were solid in every aspect of the loan and were dealings with some unforeseen circumstances which made it difficult on both of us.  It was a relief when they agreed to move in early and begin making payments.  That made our situation much easier. 

To make a long story SHORT we CLOSED on our house today and, it feels so good. Kyle and I walked out of the title company thrilled, ecstatic, and feeling very blessed!

We had so many great and wonderful times in our home. We put a lot of sweat and blood into it. Installing, sanding and varnishing the hardwood floors, Kyle laying the tile in the bathroom with no running water in the WINTER, (thanks Justi for the water) Lindsey helping us paint 9 months pregnant, painting the walls over and over just to get the perfect amount of glaze on, building a mailbox in the middle of rain storm, digging the trenches in the yard, laying the sprinkler lines, filling the trenches, leveling the yard, planting and waiting, and waiting for the grass to grow, building a garden seeing Kaden so excited to watch the plants grow, building custom cabinets for the library and last but not least Kyle finishing the whole entire basement! It was wonderful to work so hard on something and have it turn out, just perfect.

We will miss our home and and all the great friendships we made in Eagle Mountain . It was a great stop for our family. There will always be a special place in our hearts for 2105 Shadow Dr. There are lessons to be learned for all phases of life and I think patience will be at the top of our list for this phase.

It sucks that you are not here. But I am glad that you finely did sell your house, I only want good things for you and your family. We are already missing your pool out on your front lawn when it got warm outside. Your house always seemed to be the meeting point on warm days. Now where do we go?

ashlee said...

Your house is BEAUTIFUL!! Congrats on selling it. I'm sure it's a huge relief. Patience is for sure at the top of my list right now to learn. It's pretty painful for me:)

Just to clarify about the comment made by anonymous, I have adjusted the post after realizing the points you had made. I never meant it to be offensive, I was merely talking about my general feelings and did not realize that is sounded specific to our situation.

MaRea! That is so exciting! I am so pleased for you! I know that when things are right they work out even if it takes a little time! I am pleased for you and hope we will still see you here in the metropolis of SLC! Thanks for coming up for my birthday, it was so much fun and I really enjoy chatting with you, we have so much in common.

Okay so this is totally random and you totally don't know me.. but I a just laughing when I say this post (I found your blog through Katy) We had been looking at houses for a while now and even though Eagle mountain wasn't an option for me, I saw your house on KSL and I LOVED IT!!!!!!! Your house is BEAUTIFUL, I remember saying I bet that sells fast, so I am glad to hear that after a long road it is sold! As weird as this comment is, I just had to stop in and say all your work certainly paid off..
