Justin and I just got home from checking out the house out in Fowlerville not too long ago.
We love the house....but I'm trying not to get too attached, due to what happened with the last house we thought we loved. But this one is different. This house I can actually see us living in for a long, long time, where as the other house I'd want to move again after 7 to 10 years. This one has that "home" feeling I've been searching for, and missing, ever since I moved out, and my parents sold their house.
Bottom line, we love this house.....way more then the other house. This is a house that we can live in together, have the space we want, Riley would have a fenced yard, we could raise kids there, have family over, etc, etc. So it is perfect.
Not only that, this house in Fowlerville is soo close to one of Justin's family friends, Sandy, and only about 10 or 15 minutes from Justin's brother and sister-in-law, Ryan and Katie.....which will be nice for them once they have their baby; we're free babysitters, and live really close! :-)
Also, another hugely positive thing about this property is Justin's dad, Mike, and family friend, Mark, came out and looked at the house while we were there, did a quick walk thru inspection and didn't find anything! As apposed to the other house, where there were major concerns about the roof, septic, and some other little things.
I think we're going to talk about it a little more later tonight and then will email our Realtor and put in an offer on this new house we love in Fowlerville :-)
Wish us luck! We're going to need it.
