Out with the old in with the Old?

So we have made the big decision to sell our current home and to buy another. We've been here for eight years now, and had some wonderful times in this house as well as in the . But since our family is growing (new little one due in May) we have get more room. To be honest, leaving the neighborhood will be harder than leaving the house because of the the great friends we have made, but luckily for us, we (hopefully) wont be moving too far away. 

Why the title 'Out with the old in with the old' you may ask? Well good question I guess but there are a couple of reasons behind it.

  1. We will be moving out of this house, the old house, and moving buying a gently used house, or an old house to some;
  2. We will be moving from this 'old' house only to bring our 'old' memories with us and to make many more.

I am going to blog the process of selling and buying, the ups and downs, good and bad, highs and lows as they were of this process. Since this is a first time for us to sell and buy, I can assure you it will be a process or better yet, a learning process. 

We have begun the first step and have invited three different  in to give us their elevator pitch on to why we should decide to give them thousands of dollars and how they can give us the most in the pocket. So far one has been in and a couple of others will be this weekend. 

So now the work begins... Refresh the paint, fix the dents in the walls, put up some crown molding, #deClutter the house. All the normal things that you need to do after living at a place for eight years. Wish me luck because it will be a couple of interesting months and don't forget to follow along as I post the progress of the next chapter of this Sooley
