If you have been following my Instagram stories, then you already know we had posted our home for sell about 2 months ago. Well, one week later, we accepted a nice looking offer (over asking) and we couldn’t decline.

We had been living in this house for about two years and just needed a spontaneous change in our lives. There is a list of reasons why we sold, but unless I directly tell you why we did it, then I don’t think anyone will really understand.

Buying a home is one thing, but selling?!?!? Oh my goodness, let me tell you, I have so much respect for real estate agents because it is not easy. The past 2 months were stressful, confusing, and expensive!

We got so lucky with finding the right agent; he is trustworthy, honest, and always listened to us (I am sure he is happy to be done with us lol). He also helped us buy this home all the way from Alaska 2 years ago. If you are in the Sacramento/Roseville area and are looking for a good agent let me know!

If I can give any advice about buying property, it would be to; save as much money as you can before buying, and educate yourself as much as possible.

But even with being as prepared as we were, this was still a learning experience for us. I honestly cannot wait to buy and sell again.

In the end, I am sad, we have a lot of good memories here. But this was never meant to be a forever home, more like a investment opportunity to make a profit. And let me tell you, we are running to the bank pretty happy.

Buying property can be one of the best and fastest ways to make a lot of money. And we did so many upgrades to this house, it looks nothing like before we bought it. And those upgrades are what helped this house sell fast with a over asking offer.

Now, we are settled in our new home until our next pcs, who knows when we will move again, and who knows where we will move to next (oh military life).

I keep saying we got very lucky, because this is our first time ever purchasing, fixing, and selling a home, this could have been a expensive disaster! But everything worked out, and I am thanking Jesus!!!

Thank you for reading, if you have any questions or need any advice please let me know!
