The wife and I are in the process of buying a house in North Carolina. Been in the works for a couple months now, we’ve just been keeping it on the down low until she submitted her resignation too her employer. She handed that in this morning.
A few folks on here already know since the wife and I have been talking about it for some time. This summer it just all fell into place.
We found a house we could both agree on (for the most part) and put an offer in on it at the beginning of August. A little haggling back and forth and some written agreements to existing verbal agreements and some things that needed addressing after a home inspection and we close on it this coming Friday. The move will take place mid October. At that point we’ll list our current home and see how that goes.
It has been an eye opening process since we haven’t bought a house since PC became popular 😂😂😂
But it has gone easier I can say that. Everything too this point has been digital signatures which makes it very convenient since we’re in Ohio still.
Closing we will be in the lawyers office and get the keys (officially) at signing, but I’ll be at the house Thursday afternoon meeting the realtor and unloading some things we’ll initially need for our first weekend down there.
Looking forward too being done and in the new place and getting settled in. It’s a rural location with a 3/4 mile long driveway. That was the initial sticking point with the wife 😂 To say she was a little freaked out about it was an understatement 😂 She should have never read “Children of the corn” 😂😂 But she had a little conversation with our daughter and she was much better 😂
So not much will change as far as my presence here on the site and my goal is too make the outings as usual. So hopefully see everybody at Stroud’s.

Congratulations 'J' on your new home, that's great!

Wife & I both like NC quite a bit and thought about it more than a few times on making that kind of move.

Look forward to finally meeting you at Strouds!

I would love to live that far off the main road!!! Looks awesome, congrats!!!
From where we currently live, too the new place is night and day difference. Really looking forward too the solitude. We will have a neighbor on the lane heading back, but from interaction so far they seem like good people.
They’re all related and we’ll be the new blood moving in 😂
