I really couldnt hold it in any more, and had to share.. I had been watching the market pretty heavy the last few years and waiting! It has turned to be a buyers paradise, but there has been too many sellers who wont budge and rather fall to foreclosure.
The last four months a property I had been eyeballing, the owners finally called last month to let me know they were interested in the offer I put in. Needless to say we spent a few weeks bargaining back and forth. The realty company called me Friday and said the owners would accept my offer! I spent most of the day today in the office signing papers and then going out with the assessor to inspect the property lines. I closed the sale this evening! Yay!
The reason I am so excited, is that I have always wanted to get a good amount of property of my own to continue the family history. It came true today when I closed on a 2000 home, 8-stall heated barn, attached shop and seperate shop, sitting on 115 acres! My little monsters will finally get lots of open range to play and disappear for hours! Feb 1st I get to move in, and I can just taste getting to unload all of my little monsters off the trailer and setting them loose out on pasture!
Another neat note to it all, is that the VA approved it (which is impossible on rural properties), and I will end up paying less monthly then where I am at now! This means more equine fun.. actually I have already been pushing it to the limits where I am at now, as I keep collecting, and running out of room to put them! LOL! The downside to it all, if it can really be considered that, is that I am further out and away from town and work then before, by 25 miles.. But I think its all worth it! I only work 3 days one week and 4 the next, so gas shouldnt kill me!
