Big News Is Here!

Hi friends....I can finally share what I've been keeping secret for months. I bought a home - a short sale condo! This has been a year and a half long process, seriously. I started looking in December 2011 and because I'm so picky and on a strict budget, there wasn't much out there that I liked. After several rejected offers last summer, I found my new place in October - it was perfect (well, perfect for me). It had everything I was looking for (top floor, balcony, 2bed/2bath minimum, awesome location), plus a few extra perks (fireplace, hardwood floors, vaulted ceiling, elevators, covered parking). I've been playing the waiting game with the banks since October 2012 and after endless signatures, lots of back and forth, several rescheduled close dates, a fair amount of anxiety and sleepless nights, it finally happened today! More details later, but I wanted to get this posted immediately!

I want to document my home decorating and renovating process. My new question for you is: would you rather see me do it on this blog, The Dapper Bun, or create a separate blog just for the home updates? Please vote!!

  • Yes, keep the content here!
  • No, create a separate blog!
  • I don't have a preference.

Congratulations, Mary Ann! Buying a home is one of the most scary/exciting adventures and I am sure you will handle the upcoming projects in style. Looking forward to reading about your adventures, and I voted to keep it here, maybe a "The Dapper Home" category or something :)

Congratulations! There are lots of vacant properties in this area but finding something you love is the key! Glad you find and at a good price! :) I can't wait to see your renovations. We are still doing renovations to the forecloser house we bought a few years ago. Best of luck in the process!
