Its amazing how things work out sometimes. We happen to live a couple streets down from the house we were originally in love with. The house we were fighting for when the house we have now literally landed in our lap. It was too good of a deal to pass up but I was a little upset it wasn’t the house of my dreams like the first one. I drove by that house again today and you know what? I realized how little I wanted that house now. I mean, not even the slightest bit. Then I drove home to, what has become, my real dream house. It really is leaps and bounds better than the other one! It feels good knowing we made the ABSOLUTE right choice.
What surprised you in how things worked out? I love stories like these!

Wow, that is the same exact thing that happened to us! The house is literally two houses down from where we live now. =)

Glad it worked out for you! I know how hard it is to see that everything is meant to be when you really want a particular house. We lost 5 house bidding asking price or more and in the end we found a house that we love and it’s in an amazing neighborhood. We looked at some house w/o basements and now that I have a basement it’s like we would have had no room for storage if we ended up in one of those houses.

So glad it worked out that way – it’d be awful to see it all the time and wish it was yours, so nice you’re now glad you ended up with your current home!
My whole life, my dream job was to work at Disney World and I was obsessed with the idea of doing the college program they offer. Well, I hated it and quit about three weeks in. EVeryoe said I’d regret it and it would be a huge mistake, but the job I found when I came back is the one I still have five years later – it’s pretty much the reason and way I got my independence and started setting up an actual future for myself, and it introduced me to people and a new area where I would not have met my husband otherwise. So I’m actually happy it didn’t work out – by the time I was supposed to move back from Florida, this opportunity would not have been there for me.

Aww I’m so glad to read this 🙂 And YES, I can totally relate. I feel the same way about our house. It was the house that my husband bought a year before meeting me. When we decided to move in together, I *really* didn’t want to move in his house, for many reasons. The two top reasons were 1) it was his home first so that would call for possible issues when I would try and change things; and, 2) I couldn’t see myself moving from the downtown area to the country (with cows).
Long story short, I’ve been here over 2 years, we’re married, in love, and I LOVE this home. I look at house that I would’ve considered buying 2-3 years ago, and I can’t imagine living there. Living in the country is perfect for us. (But I do have to get dose of downtown often though! 🙂
