Goodbye Loft!

These past few months have been a whirlwind, so I'd like to take a moment to update everyone!

Back in July, we noticed our lofts had almost sold all the the new inventory in our building. The market was doing really well, and after much discussion, we thought it was best to put the loft on the market. We had hoped to stick around for a few more years making updates to accommodate our family, but lets face it, 4 people in a one bedroom loft just doesn't cut it.  The gals are walking and the wrought iron stairs are a death trap.

We got recommendations from a friend and hired a local realtor. He saw he potential in our loft & we got the ball rolling. The stager came through & her message was simple. Basically put everything in storage! Ha! We worked out butts off to simplify the loft, clean, & redecorate. And of course a bigger storage unit was leased.

The loft was only on the market for a few days & we were under contract. However, long story short, that fell through because of low appraisal. We were so bummed, but had hope that the right person who had the cash would come through. Well, one day back on the market, and we had two new offers. Both were of fining up extra cash if the appraisal was low. We went with the higher offer & as of Friday the loft was SOLD!

It was certainly a rollercoaster, that one blog post can't even begin to capture, but looking back now it was all worth it.

We said goodbye to our loft last week & it was a bittersweet day. It's the place we brought the gals home to & we will never forget all the great memories we had here.
