What prompted you to buy a bigger home?
"We had been looking for a couple of years for the right house. We knew we didn’t just want to move anywhere, we wanted our house. Like many potential homebuyers, we agreed to receive automated e-mail for listings that matched our interests.
To be honest, we rarely, if ever, opened them. The one day I did, I saw a house that listed as a 3 bedroom, but looked like a 5 bedroom. Since we were outgrowing our previous 3 BR home that we had gutted and renovated, we decided to make an inquiry.
We didn’t really anticipate securing the home since we’d lost the bid on other offers and applied for a loan with plans to be rejected. We were just going through the process of preparing, only to end up purchasing!"
