When my grandmother passed away, she left me her home.
I was her only granddaughter and she always told me that she was going to leave it to me. She took care of her only grandson as well, but left me the house. It took a few months before I moved in because there were some things I wanted to get done before moving there.
I got some of the things done and moved in. The home was a little small and only had 2 bedrooms. I knew that if I wanted to have a family someday that I wouldn’t be able to live in this home.
Shortly after moving in, my boyfriend moved in and we got married.
I got pregnant and I knew we would need to get a bigger home. I knew that I was going to have a hard time selling this home because of the location and also the work that needed to be done on it.
There were some major things that needed done, like the roof needing replaced. My husband and I didn’t want to take on this expense and buying a new home at the same time.
The first thing we wanted to do is find a home that was big enough for our family that was going to be growing. We found one that we really liked in a great neighborhood. It was big enough for us and it had 4 bedrooms in it.
We wanted to contact a realtor to look at it, so we did. We loved this home and knew we had to have it, but we had to sell our home first.
I started looking for ways to sell my house quickly and found a few different options. I could either fix the things on it that needed to be fixed or I could go through a company that pays cash for homes.
I decided I would look into the companies that pay cash because I wanted to sell my house quickly. I called them and made an appointment for them to come look at it for me. I told my husband my plans and he wanted to be there when they came.
They came and appraised our home and let us know what they would pay us for it.
My husband and I wanted to talk about it and agreed that it was a good amount. We could use the money from selling this house to put down on the other house we wanted.
We called them back to get everything set up. They bought our home and gave us the money the same day. It was an easy transaction and we were able to buy the home that we wanted.
We love our bigger home and our new neighborhood. Our family is still growing and I’m glad that we bought a home with a few extra bedrooms in it. It is perfect for us.
