So before I could even really get settled and do blog posts about my apartment, it looks like I’ll be moving again! After being in my apartment for a couple of weeks, I thought about it and it doesn’t really make sense to be paying rent for an apartment when I could be paying that to something I own.
I started the process of looking for houses on October 12. I really wanted a new build in a newer community. I started looking in Orange County and loved what I saw. However, I visited one place where she told me they just started a new community in the Inland Empire and I hadn’t even thought of that area but once I looked it up, I saw that I could get much more house for less money. So I started looking in that area. I found one that I really liked and was even sold on the house, but it didn’t work out and I started looking again. I had also at that point decided that I wanted a detached house and not a townhouse because I wanted a yard for my dog. I went to one more community that was started in 2008 and looked at their detached houses. The lady who was helping me suggested I look at their townhouses and I told her I didn’t really want to but she took me and I fell in love. The yard at the townhouse was so much larger than their detached houses and what’s what won me over.
Since then, everything has progressed pretty quickly. I’m scheduled to close escrow on November 6 and can move in anytime after that. Luckily I was able to get out of my current lease on a 30 day satisfaction guarantee.
So it looks like my decor posts are going to be at my house now! I can’t wait to start posting more about it and going through this process with you all!
