Matt and I bought our first home in October of last fall.
We began our search in mid July, looking at a couple houses over the next month.
We saw our house first over the weekend of August 25th, 2012 and put in an offer on Sunday, August 26th, 2012.
Our offer was accepted on Tuesday, August 28th, and our closing date was set for Tuesday, October 16th, 2012.
After officially signing the stack of paperwork and getting our house keys, the house was OURS!
Let the renovations begin!
I snapped photos of the whole process to reflect on later, and I think it’ll make the best photo book of all our progress.
Here are the Before photos of our lovely first home:
