Remember this home?
I know I mentioned in a previous post that this was going to be my new home, but...it's not.
This is my new home...
I just love this house. I showed the blue home in previous post as my new home because the offer we placed on the green house in July was accepted then fell through at the last minute. It was a "short sale"--but there was nothing short about it. It was a nightmare! A "short sale" is offered by the seller's bank just before a home goes into foreclosure. At the last minute the short sale was called off by the seller's bank and we needed a house (since our furniture was being shipped to Florida), so we signed a rental agreement on the blue house. Then, of course, the seller's bank said they would go through with the short sale after all. It was a fiasco! I really think that banks would now rather let homes go into foreclosure because they must be receiving something back from the "bailout." Anyway, we got what we wanted.
We are naming our new home "The Roost." Over the garage there is a full apartment, which will be used as a gameroom by my husband and all his rowdy friends--he's calling it "The Romper Room at the Roost."
This home is located in Tradition in Port St. Lucie, Florida, which is a village built to resemble an old fashioned neighborhood, complete with restaurants, shops, a doggy park, and a town hall where I may present some etiquette programs in the future.
Here are some of the shops and the town hall...
Thanks to all of you for your comments while I was away. I look forward to visiting your sites and catching up with each one of you.
