My good friend and awesome realtor just called to notify us that our offer on our homestead property has been accepted by the sellers!! She said that we should expect to be in our new home around January 4th. Of course, this also means that we have to sell our current home, but that looks promising too. We've had one couple come through to look at the home and they've already written an offer. I'm optimistic that it'll turn out well. I'm amazed that we are actually selling our home without ever even having a sign in our front yard or a listing in the newspaper. It all went so fast!
I'm so excited that my knees are literally shaking!! We are going to own 30 acres with a stocked fish pond, two springs, an orchard, a garden, a root cellar, a chicken coop, a workshop, and a woodstove...a real, functioning homestead!
