As I've told many people before, and posted previously on this blog, Bob and I are buying our first house! We are very excited to be purchasing this bank-owned property and feel badly for the family who lost it during this hard time. It seems strange that one families misfortune could result in our benefit. But it has. Every time we visit this house we discover something new that we love. From the lack of carpet on the main floor to the beautiful tile in the kitchen, from the hidden convenient storage to the spacious closets- everything seems so perfect.
