  1. So your home never hit the market?! Ooh can’t wait to hear about part 2!

    The house we now own (&love) was really the second home that we bid on. The first house was small but finished and when we lost the bid I was a bit devestated BUT flash foward a few weeks and we found a house with double the space, double the land and for the same budget. It’s funny how things work out.

    • Yes it is! That very first house we looked at (that is just a few houses down from where we ended up) was *almost* the one…it was hard to walk away from it because it was a really good deal for the money, but there was water damage in the basement that no one had an answer for, and we just couldn’t bring ourselves to look past it. But I’m SO glad we did…and ended up here!! (And nope, this house was never actually listed, which should have made it an easy and low-stress offering story…but it wasn’t at all!)

  2. We have bought a house and used Trulia! Now we rent it out but we like to keep an eye on the values. It was a great source. Buying a home can be so overwhelming and emotional! It’s great to hear your story.

    • Thanks, Tori! And it is pretty crazy how emotional it can get, isn’t it? Yes, Trulia has so many resources for every step of the real estate journey, it’s great!

  3. We are in the midst of house hunting right now, so your series couldn’t be more perfectly timed. I learn so much from hearing other’s stories, so thanks for taking the time to write out yours. Also, I’m off to check out Trulia. Sounds like a resource my hubby and I could definitely use!

  4. We bought our first house about 3 years ago. We looked at tons of houses and made tons of offers. We were always disappointed when someone else got it, but I’m glad we didn’t get any of those ones. We ended up with one way better than any of the others that we looked at. Excited to see the end of your story!
