I heard back from the property manager and we’ve got a tentative move out/move in date of May 1. We were hoping to have at least a week to get in there and do some cleaning and painting before we moved back in but it all depends on how flexible OUR property management company is about our move out date.
I have to say, it will be nice to go from working with TWO property management companies to none. I always thought renting was the best, and I still appreciate how flexible renting is, but I am looking forward to getting back to a place I own and I hope that after we sell this place that we get to move into another home we own, hopefully someplace we love and stay for a while.
When I think of the houses I would love to live in, I dream of a bungalow or a cottage or a craftsman home. Something not too big with a beautiful front porch, foliage all around and little architectural nooks and crannies inside where I could hide with a good book for hours.
This is the home my husband grew up in. It didn’t have the dormers back then or the same landscaping in front but it was beautiful and in the most amazing neighborhood, the John Hughes neighborhood:
We’ve got a lot of work to do but I think we can get there.
