Yesterday I went back in my email to find the email I sent Vince where I said “I think I’ve found our next home!” It was on July 6, 2020. The funny thing is that I searched my email for “Webb City house” and two other emails popped up where either I sent email to him or he sent email to me.
One was on the county lane right behind us . . about three houses down from our house. I can see it when there are no leaves on the trees. Vince had found it and sent the link to me. I called the realtor and this is what I wrote to Vince “This doesn’t look great, doesn’t look terrible. The realtor said it needs to be painted inside and outside, needs new floor covering, new HVAC and other repairs and updates. I think it may need more work than we’re willing to do”.
The other one was on the same numbered road but a county loop which is just one road over from us. The listing is gone so I don’t even know why we ruled that one out. Probably because it was in 2018. Vince had either just retired or was getting ready to retire and we had too much on our plate to think about moving.
Both of those houses sold back then and have sold again for almost astronomical amounts more than they were asking for them when we initially considered them. Crazy world out there in the housing market right now.
I wrote Jeremy and told him “Good timing!” and explained about the other two houses right here in the neighborhood that had passed over our radar in the couple of years before we bought this house.
Doesn’t all this just confirm that this was the right house for us? I think so too! 🙂
