House Closing

Our last family picture in front of our first house (late June 2010), Lila was almost 5 months old
We are no longer double home owners!! We sold our house in Florida on February 15th, and we both have such mixed emotions. I'm a little late to post about this, but I wanted to make sure everything was final and settled before jumping the gun.
It was so nice to be able to rent to such a great military family for a year, but when we found out last August that they would be moving, we decided to go ahead and put it back on the market rather than trying to find another renter. It didn't stay on the market as long as I had expected it to, which was nice, and our realtor worked so hard to sell it! We had three offers that had fallen through, so I was not so optimistic that this offer would work out, but it did, and we are so thankful!

The closing went very smoothly, and everything was able to be done via UPS, so we didn't need to fly to Florida. I can't believe that we don't own any property in Florida anymore, and I am a little sad to see that house go (it was our first house, and we started a family in it!). The extra money in our bank account isn't so bad though! Thankfully, we will be living in Texas for at least another three years, so we don't have to worry about having a house on the market until then!
