Our Houses

These are the many different houses we have bought and lived in. I can attest that there is nothing as stress full as trying to sell a house. I have no idea how those people buy houses and flip them, if I did that I would easily have like five heart attacks. But non the less we have been fortunate to have sold our houses in a timely manner, and loved living in each one.

OUR HOUSES


POCATELLO IDAHO
This was our first house we bought in Pocatello Idaho. This has been my favorite house that we have lived in. It was built in the 1940's so it had a really cool layout. It had two big bedrooms and one bed room in the attic of the house. We carpeted the basement so we could chill down stairs, which added a lot more room to our house. It had a big back yard with a swing set for Ava. We had to sell this house because we moved down to Utah so Heather could take over running the volleyball club when her parents went to Nigeria on their mission. This house was so awesome that when it came time to sell it we closed on it even before it was on the market.



WEST VALLEY UTAH
Those of you from Utah or know much about Utah you would look at this house and think there would be no way that this house was in West Valley. But lucky for us they built a new housing subdivision in West Valley at about 56th west, so we didn't have to be strapped or not wear certain colors when we moved in. This was a beautiful house. Oh yeah it was huge. It had three bedrooms to full baths and a 1/2 finished basement which could have easily add two more bedrooms and a family room. This was the biggest house that I have ever lived in. It was nice to have people over because there was tons of room. But I always felt it was just to big for me Heather and Ava. We ended up selling this house because it was at 56th west. I was going to school at the U and Heather worked at Westminster so it took us forever to get to work and school which translated into sending $$$$ on travel. So it was in our best benefit to sell the house. Which we did in 9 days. In the transition of selling this house and buying our next one we had to deal with all of the crazy garbage of realtor's and loan officers. This is the most crucial part of buying and selling a house is having a good realtor and loan officer. Needless to say after many dropped bombs and holes punched in walls it was done.



MURRAY UTAH

Well this is our little brick bungalow in Murray. It is an older house built in the 40's, but the guy before us gutted it and remodeled the whole thing. It is perfect size for our little family. We love the central location and it is right next to trax. Being next to trax has been a life saver. I can just hop right on and go to school. It also has a big back yard with big trees which I love because it reminds me of home. We have enjoyed living here and always have our doors open for friends and family. So feel free to stop by.

Hey Dorks, Rob and I are so mad at you. 1. you forgot to inform us that you are bloggers, when you knew full well that we were/are. 2. you were in town last week and couldn't pick up the phone to say "hey, were in town". We could have made it work and gotten to see you guys. 3. I don't want to say it but your behavior is becoming more D.D. like. J/K
