Hi friends! What a busy busy week!
Here’s what happened this past week:
I think the biggest news that happened this week is that we moved into a new apartment because I’m pregnant with another baby! Whaaaat? Yes, the move and our pregnancy were announced this week on social media to you, my lovely readers.
Once we found out we were pregnant about 2 1/2 months ago, we started seriously looking for a new apartment to rent, though I’m always looking because I love real estate. Our lease was going to expire for our old apartment in April, so we wanted to be ahead of the ball and not feel stuck or pushed into renewing that lease again, especially because it would definitely not fit 4 children.
About a month ago, we stumbled across this apartment we eventually decided to rent. We met with our realtor who was going to show us a different unit. After looking at that unit and telling him about what we were looking for (3 kids, baby on the way, blah blah blah) he brought us down to a different unit that he thought would better suit us. Turns out he was right on the money. It was double the size of the other apartment we were looking at renting for only a few hundred dollars more. Plus he said the owner was wanting to rent it quickly so even though the asking price was $X, he would accept *this much* under asking. And also it was a no fee rental, saving us thousands! So we offered what the realtor told us to and got approved within 24 hours. It was amazing….
