Good luck on your offer Kim :) you can always do a contingency contract while you sell your house.

Thanks Vida~!!

We placed our offer, with a 90 contingency on selling our house. We are waiting to hear back from the owners now.

I am sooooooooooo nervous!!

Ooh, turn the hay pasture into a horse field. Then you can rotate and sometimes use the out-of-use fields for hay when the grass gets long and you need to cut it down for the horses.

Heard anything Kim? My mom and step-dad were flying here next week from Florida to look at a house on 5 acres. She called this morning and said they had already sold the place so had to cancel. I was a little disappointed but they are still planing to keep looking. Sure would like to have them here even for part of the year.

The owner of the farmhouse/land accepted our offer. Yay~!! But now the scary part is, we have 90 days to sell our house.

Here are some photos we took there this past weekend (we measured the fields so we knew how much fencing we need)


Mini's that currently live there

that's great looks like a nice place. I like the run in shelter. It pretty much has everything you need for horse keeping. Is the house very old? Mine was built in 1900 so its in a constant state of needing repair Its is pretty scary having a house to sell while buying one, we've done it several times and its always spooky. I'll put in a good word to the man upstairs

The farmhouse was built in 1924.
It does need work, but my husband has been in new home construction and renovations for 21 years... so he can do whatever needs to be done and we can do it over time of course.

The property is too perfect for us to pass by due to an old house.

Yes... please please put in a good word for me with the man upstairs. I have been a nervous wreck since we signed the contract on the other house.

Best of luck with everything, and I'll put in a good word as well. I would be a nervous wreck too. It's spooky enough even making a large purchase like this let alone having to also sell something in return. Nice place though. :)
